Faceted Blue Topaz and Peridot Pendant in Sterling Silver
This listing is for a wire wrapped pendant featuring blue topaz and peridot gemstones. The faceted stones are accented with handwoven coils and weaves of sterling silver wire. The wire work was carefully designed in a balanced and elegant style to create a tasteful yet eye-catching piece. The sterling silver pendant is hung on a silver plated copper chain and packaged in a elegant gift box.
GEMSTONE PROPERTIES: Topaz comes in a variety of colors, and has also been valued throughout the centuries as a sign of status. The stunning blue of the stone is enhanced by heat treatment. Topaz has a deep history of use for spiritual purposes. Even today blue topaz is thought of as a very soothing and calming stone. It is believed to help distance the wearer from stress and problems by allowing them to rise above them.
Peridot is one of the few gemstones which exists only in one color. Its green color is due to the chemical iron, and the intensity of the color depends on the amount of iron in the stone. Ancient legends say that peridot was the favorite gemstone of the elegant Cleopatra. Peridot is also thought to be a stone of lightness and positivity, and to protect the wearer from negative emotions of others.
CHAIN: The pendant is photographed on a silver-plated copper snake chain, available in lengths of 16 or 20 inches. 16 inches is the default option, just add a "message to seller" at checkout if you prefer 20 inches. The silver plating on the chain will eventually wear off, but its a great affordable option. I also have a variety of styles of sterling silver chains available to enhance your pendant in the Chain Section starting at $15.
SIZE: 1 3/4 inches x 1/4 inch
CLEANING: All sterling silver jewelry also comes with a non-tarnish strip that prevents tarnish by absorbing and trapping the sulfides and other pollutants in the air. If kept in a sealed bag or jewelry box with your silver jewelry the strip will prevent tarnishing for approximately 6 months. Peridot is a durable stone and can be polished with a silver polish made for use with gemstones, such as Hagerty Silver Jewel Clean. To remove and dirt or debris it can also be cleaned with a gentle toothbrush and warm soapy water.
