This striking men’s choker of lapis lazuli and sterling silver is dominated by brilliant shades of blue. It is created from genuine lapis lazuli tube beads which capture the deep blues of twilight. This lapis was mined in Afghanistan and the beads are a premium quality. They have flashes of sparkling pyrite but relatively little calcite and they retain their naturally intense blue color. I alternated the lapis with sodalite rounds of a slightly lighter blue and added three segments of sterling silver tube beads with a rope design to provide contrast and a glint of light. A sterling silver hook clasp with a rope design completes the design.
The necklace measures 19 ½ inches in length which is a good choker length for a man, but I can change the length if you wish. The lapis beads are 4 mm in diameter which creates a slender, understated profile. Lapis lazuli has been a favored gemstone throughout time and is believed to be a stone of truth and friendship. It is also thought to bring peacefulness and harmony to relationships. Sodalite is related to its more famous cousin, lapis lazuli and is traditionally thought to bring inner peace and harmony. This striking necklace with its remarkable blues will be the right choice for any occasion.
