Cultured fresh water pearls, natures delicate gem, and 100 % titanium, natures strongest yet lightest metal, are joined together here for your shopping pleasure.
The AA grade semi round cultured fresh water pearls have been individually dyed a soft silver gray to enhance their natural gray color. The cultured pearls measure 8 mm each and have a silver luster that orients to soft tones of lavender, blue and blue green when exposed to natural light.
Each cultured pearl is wrapped with 100 % pure titanium wire and connected with hand forged 100 % pure titanium rings that measure 4.5 mm each. The titanium rings have squared edges and have been anodized to reflect the colors of the rainbow as they catch light.
A 15 mm niobium metal heart shaped clasp secures the necklace. The niobium metal toggle clasp has been anodized and displays the purple, blue, yellow and green colors of the rainbow just like the anodized titanium connecting rings do.
This natural beauty is 18 inches long and weighs just 1/2 ounce.
Niobium metal displays strength and is resistant to high temperatures. The low toxicity and iridescent properties of niobium are highly desired in the construction of jewelry.
Titanium metal is light weight, with a lustrous silver color and is resistant to corrosion in sea water and chlorinated swimming pool water.
Anodizing is an elecrto-chemical process that converts the metal surface into a decorative, durable, corrosion resistant anodic oxide finish. In the case of the metals in this necklace the anodizing process has produced the rainbow color effect.
A perfect gift for the athlete in your life!
