VERY RARE...48 Natural Untreated Fancy cut Swiss Blue Topaz & 14kt yellow rolled gold Necklace 19"
The gold I used in this necklace is 14kt rolled gold and is so much more affordable that solid. It has the same exact features as solid in that it will never tarnish or lose it's luster and will last forever and because the base metal is brass, makes this so much more affordable. I can send along a copy of a previous sale that shows you the value of this gold, that was GIA certified. It gives this band alone a value of $1,000 at least for the gold and workmanship on only the band alone.
This necklace is a great deal more expansive and worth a great deal more alone than the one on the GIA.
This is a LOT...................of necklace and gold. Tremendous amount of time went into creating this new piece. The stone itself measures almost one inch wide x 2 inches tall. The section that holds the stone measures 3 inches wide x 3 1/2 inches tall. The band is 3/8 inch wide. I've created into the entire necklace 4mm AB clear, deep blue, blues Exillion and white Swarovski Crystals and pearls. I used one XLarge White Freshwater Pearl at the top front section about the stone on the band. The whole necklace is 19 inches long with an eye and hook closer.
Comes in a Beautiful Necklace case and outer gift box.
Photos truly don't do it justice.
The differences between the 2 golds.
Solid Gold: Solid gold is a precious metal that comes out of the earth it is of course to soft in this state to be used in jewelry and is usually mixed with copper or silver to increase it's strength. 14K gold will have more copper or silver mixed in 22K will have less. It is by far the most expensive.
Gold Fill: Gold filled metal is made by bonding a layer of gold, usually 50-100 times thicker than plating, to a base metal, usually sterling silver or brass, using high heat and pressure. This results in a metal that is very durable and does not flake off or rub off. It is much less expensive than solid gold.
