Sterling Silver Gold Pendant Necklace Star Sapphire, Plum Flower

Beautiful sterling flower with a black patina and a hand-rubbed wax protective coating. 5 gold (14kt) dots and the shimmers in the dusty plum color star sapphire is a great light-play against the black patina. The chatoyance is due to oriented microscopic inclusions. I have textured the flower edges to create an organic look. Under sunlight and strong directional lights (last 2 photos), you can see a 6-ray star on the stone that is quite centered.

Plum flowers have a lot of symbolic meanings in the Chinese culture. It represents resiliency and strength because it thrives in the coldest of winters and signals the upcoming spring. Each of the five petals of a plum blossom represents the five major ethnic peoples of China - Han, Manchurian, Mongolian, Muslim, Tibetan. Sometimes the five petals refer to the five elements - metal, wood, water, fire, and earth as mentioned in the I-Ching.

The sterling flower is cut from a substantial 2mm thick silver sheet and comes to almost 7/8 inch (about 21mm) in diameter. The blackened sterling ball chain is 20 inches (50.8cm) long and closes with a spring ring clasp. Signature and quality stamps are on the back. All silver and gold used are eco friendly and recycled from certified sources.
