Large lapis teardrop pendant (55x40mm). Good-sized lapis lazuli tube beads (27x10mm). 8mm round beads that I thought were lapis but turned out to be dyed fossil stone beads. (They look like lapis to me!) Gold-filled 8mm and 4mm round beads. Gorgeous 24K vermeil (gold over silver) S-clasp. Overall length: 24-1/2 inches with a 2-inch pendant drop.
So what is an understatement necklace? It doesn't shout. No words are necessary. People who see you wearing it know immediately who you are. More importantly, YOU know who you are.
There is something about the combination of blue and gold that always makes me think of royalty. When you want to feel regal yourself, just slip on this necklace. Of course, you probably have a duke or a duchess somewhere in your genealogical line (Don't we all?), but it's not necessary. No sirree. When you think royal, you are royal.
Oh! The back of the pendant is shown in the closeup on red. Couldn't tell the difference (from the front), could you!
Good to see you here today. Is that a tiara you're wearing???
