Here we have a one of a kind artisan sterling silver choker circa 1980 set with two colorless synthetic round brilliant cut garnets which sparkle like diamonds.
The choker sits wide on the neck really drawing attention to a petite neck and the face. It's an eye catching piece both in it's proportions, the exquisite asymmetrical geometry and standard handmade manufacture.
The clever design means that this collar is adjustable within a certain range and could be adjusted to fit a somewhat larger or smaller neck. It measures 2 5/16" wide at the front and as pictured it measures approximately 12 3/4 " long around the neck (59mm x 325mm).
The two set synthetic garnets measure respectively approximately 16mm in diameter and 12mm in diameter. They sparkle, glitter and flash a lot like diamonds. Synthetic garnets make a very nice substitute for diamonds. Although more expensive than cubic zirconia or crystal glass they are tougher and harder than both of those and so are much less prone to chipping or scratches. Also synthetic garnets remain perfectly clear and colorless, cubic zirconias are sensitive to ultraviolet and tend to develop a brownish tint if worn outdoors a lot especially in a sunny climate.
In it's entirety this exceptional statement necklace is handmade with no cast or machined elements. You rarely see this sort of workmanship today- and that is without speaking about the creativity of this piece.
It is in lovely condition with some surface patina true to being a vintage piece circa 1980.
We shall ship in a presentation box for safe keeping.
