These are the same eye-catching pieces I have been selling at the world famous Philadelphia Flower show for over 20 years.

A real Oak Leaf is preserved in 24K Gold to create a truly unusual piece. These species of trees are found throughout the United States and are the most famous classic Oak shape (quercus family). They are a real conversation piece and collector's item.

Oak Stands for Loyalty and welcome. Remember the Trusty oak!

Most people don't reveal how these are made, so I'll take the time to give you the lowdown. First, the leaves are picked and NOT allowed to dry out. Once that's done, it's immersed in a controlled acid bath that removes all but the woody veining. Then, a jewelry bale is attached and the leaf is carefully coated with another hardener and put in a copper or nickle hardening bath. There always has to be a pre-bath before the final "dipping" in a precious metal. After the copper (or sometimes nickle) bath, the leaves are then dipped in the a 24K Gold solution, which is permanently bonded to the leaf and preserves it forever.

The Oak leaf shape and Veining make it a gorgeous jewelry piece. The Gold gold works with everything. It is a very sturdy item that my customers have worn for years. The Gold stays beautiful for many years without special care. The best way to store it is in a little plastic bag (works for any jewelry!).

A complementary 24" gold cobra chain is included with your leaf , although you can use any chain (or color) you please. You could also use a ribbon or cord. Please note in case I run out of the 18" chains, I may substitute a longer chain at no charge. Or I can make as a hatpin/stickpin instead.

The Oak leaf is medium to large.. about 2 " long and 1 1/2" wide.

The necklace comes with a small glossy white pillow-type gift box (recyclable), along with a nice soft green card with a brief explanation of the plating process.

I also have necklaces available in magnificent iridescent Gold and Silver..they are spectacular!

I also have leaves in Oak, Aspen, Pine Cones, and Birch leaves
