Contemporary sterling silver necklace of gorgeous genuine pink Peruvian opal faceted teardrop, hand wire wrapped cluster of grey hematite beads and silver nuggets.

This necklace is beautiful. The pink peruvian opal teardrop is wonderfully striated with very nice facets. I used sterling silver wire to wrap the hematite beads and small sterling nuggets, with a few tiny faceted black glass seed beads, into a nest at the top of the opal. The entire pendant hangs from a fine sterling silver foxtail chain necklace.

The necklace is 18" long. The pendant drop is about 1 1/4"long and 3/4" wide.

Natural gemstones have variations in color and often have inclusions. These are not flaws but are part of the natural stone and add to its interest.

Frequently asked questions about ShopPretties

In many cases, the length of a necklace, bracelet or even dangle earrings can be changed to suit your needs. If the change is minor there would be no charge for this service. However, if a piece would need to be restrung or a significant change in materials would be required, a charge may be necessary. I handle this on an individual basis and would advise you if necessary so that you can approve of any additional charge.
I enjoy modifying an existing design, or creating an entirely new design for my customers. You may request a custom order by using the "custom order" button from my shop, or you can begin the process by contacting me via Etsy convo.

Please be aware that this can sometimes be a process that can take several days or even several weeks to complete, as we discuss details and materials for the design and you are provided photos to approve. Plan accordingly, especially if the jewelry piece is to be worn on a specific date.

If a design will require me to purchase special supplies or materials, you will need to pay a NON refundable deposit to cover the cost of these supplies or materials.
I package all jewelry in a gift box, with cotton cushioning and tissue paper on the inside, and ribbon and decorative seal on the outside. I have gift card inserts available, at no charge. If you wish me to include a gift card insert, simply indicate the message to be used in the "comments" section at check out.
Magnetic clasps: To open, gently insert the tip of your fingernail between the two halves of the clasp to break the magnetic seal, then slide apart. Please do not attempt to pull a magnetic clasp apart as this will result in damage to the piece.

Sterling silver and gold vermeil: Both of these materials can tarnish over time. Please use a soft anti-tarnish cloth as needed. To help prevent tarnishing, store in a closed box or zip-lock baggie (this protects the piece from the air).
In order to qualify as gold vermeil and not gold-plated silver, a piece of jewelry must meet strict requirements. The base must be pure sterling silver or fine silver. It may not be coated with any other metal prior to having the layer of gold applied. Finally, the gold layer with which the silver is plated must be at least 10-karat gold, and the layer must be at least two and one-half microns in thickness - significantly thicker than gold plated or gold filled metal.

If I know the karat value of the gold plating, I will specify this in my listing - ie, 24k gold over sterling silver.
Some of the components I use are made of fine silver. This is generally true of charms and other components that are made by the Karen Hill Tribes of Thailand.

Technically, fine silver is "pure" silver - .999 (99.9%) silver content with only a trace of other metals to form the alloy. Fine silver used in most jewelry making has a silver content of .965 (96.5%). Sterling silver has a silver content of .925 (92.5%).
