There's something so striking about the gemstone Lapis Lazuli. Even the name has a mystique about it.
This necklace features lapis at its most beautiful...paired with sterling silver. The silver picks up all the silvery gray matrix in the lapis so it's a handsome match.
The center pendant is a big dome of lapis that looks like a dark night sky. It measures 1 3/4 inches across by 2 1/4 inches high.
The chain of beads holding the pendant includes Lapis beads, ornate sterling beads, and molded blue glass beads. The lapis beads are 12mm wide.
The necklace measures 22 inches around. It weighs 107 grams...very substantial. The back of the pendant is marked 925. We've left the silver unpolished for those who prefer the vintage patina. One lapis bead has what looks like a natural dip in the stone. Overall, this estate necklace is in excellent vintage condition.
