There are few stones that have the drama and artistry of chrysoprase. This amazing chrysoprase and sterling silver necklace, shown here with matching earrings, seems to have captured all of the shades of blue and green in the spectrum, with a touch of gold and a flash of silver thrown in for good measure. Each stone has its own landscape and I could have wandered endlessly through those vistas but, these stones seemed anxious to come together into a design and lasted only two days on my workbench before my hands were busy creating this necklace. When stones are this lovely, it really isn't necessary to over embellish them and so, the design places the emphasis on the beauty of the stones. Small, round, highly polished, sterling silver beads separate the stones - adding just a touch of silver sparkle - and the piece ends in a gentle flow of sterling silver beads and finishing beads. The sterling silver toggle has a fail safe functionality (it won't come open when you're wearing it) and is simple in design. Length: (to) 17.5"
