Amethyst pendant and chain necklace set in 18 kt yellow gold and sterling silver coated with black rhodium

$700.00

Product Description

This classic, yet timeless pendant and chain necklace can be worn for almost any occasion. The regal purple color of the 8.17 ct amethyst center stone stands out among the blend of silver, black and classic yellow gold tones of the necklace’s metals. The heavy rope chain and the majority of the sturdy pendant are made of sterling silver coated with black rhodium to give a dark, radiant luster with a cool, edgy feel. The setting and prongs which hold the amethyst in place are made of 18 kt yellow gold, further accentuating its lovely purple color.

Gordon’s Design Notes: 

I wanted to gain experience with consumer response to sterling silver jewelry, but was reluctant to create my own line at this time. I decided, instead, to start by offering a few products manufactured by other companies. It had to be the right product and company, though. After seeing this piece, I felt it fit perfectly with other pieces in my collection.

Other Details

Care::
Protect your jewelry from impact against hard surfaces and avoid contact with abrasive surfaces. All gemstones, including diamonds, can chip, scratch, or abrade under the right circumstances. Avoid ultrasonic and steam cleaning.
Specifics::
Like any plated finish, rhodium plating will fade over time with wear. When the necklace’s plating begins to show signs of wear, it should be taken to a jewelry professional for polishing and replating.
Cleaning::
The best method for cleaning all your jewelry is to soak each item in a mixture of lukewarm water and gentle dish washing liquid followed by a very light cleaning with a soft child’s toothbrush.
Additional Cleaning::
To remove tarnish from sterling silver, use a gentle liquid cleaner that is safe for pearls. We will recommend a specific product upon purchase.
