Understated elegance. That’s my favorite kind. This is a double strand necklace made of gold wrapped labradorite and hand-stamped silver elements. I love the mix of metals. Asmi is Sanskrit for “Be”, which is the inspiration for this collection. Necklace measures 17″ -18″ with lobster clasp and adjustable length chain closure. 14k gold fill and sterling silver. The silver has been oxidized and hand polished for an antique finish.
About labradorite: Labradorite is truly a fascinatingly beautiful mineral. Its a mineral whose charm is not fully noticed and may be overlooked if not viewed from the proper position. When the light hits this plain gray stone, flashes of blue, yellow, and green, called labradorescence are revealed. Labradorite was first found in 1770 on the Labrador Peninsula in Canada. It is also found in Norway and the former USSR. Legend says that Labradorite is a power stone, allowing you to see through illusions and determine the actual form of your dreams and goals.
About 14k gold fill: 14K gold-filled wire is a professional jewelers grade wire. Gold-filled wire is not plated. It is a tube of solid 14K gold mechanically bonded to a brass or silver base. There is 100 times more gold in gold filled than in gold plate wire. This layer of gold must be a minimum of 1/20th of the total metal weight to be called gold filled. The color looks exactly like 14k gold. It is tarnish-resistant, safe for sensitive skin, and unlike gold plate, it will not wear off. It is a great way to enjoy affordable gold jewelry.
