Another variation of my "Confetti" necklace that I've done over the years, this piece incorporates delicate, faceted tourmaline coins in shades of pink, green, indicolite yellow, amber and brown. The stones have exceptional color saturation and are AAA rated.
To keep with the confetti theme, the necklace has been accented with vermeil coin beads. Vermeil is not to be confused with gold plated, which has a minuscule layer of gold over brass. In contrast, vermeil must meet the FTC standard of 100 millionths of an inch (2 ½ microns) of fine gold layered over sterling silver. In order for a piece to be labeled legally as "vermeil", the item must not be less than 10 karat gold and have a substantial thickness, with a minimum thickness of 2 ½ microns.
The vermeil coin beads are 24kt gold over sterling silver, and have a beautiful, brushed texture.
The necklace is strung with professional beading wire and is finished with a 14kt gold filled lobster claw clasp.
16" in length.
Your necklace will ship USPS mail with tracking and will be packaged in a lovely gift box.
