This handsome necklace was created of faceted prasiolite round beads, separated by sterling silver spacers, and featuring a prasiolite and sterling silver pendant. Prasiolite, as you probably know, is amethyst of a delicate green color that comes in a variety of intensities. The pendant is 2 inches long, including the bail, and the necklace is 20 inches from end to end, including the hook clasp of sterling silver plate over white bronze. The beads range in size from 3mm to 10mm.
This would make a lovely gift, to yourself or someone else. Let me tell you what I used to do, when my dear husband was still living. He absolutely hated to shop, and when he did shop for a gift for me it was always something practical, like a Revere-ware pan. After a few years of kitchen gifts, I said, "Honey, I know you hate to shop, so how about letting me shop for my own presents?" He was delighted, and so was I. From then on I received exactly what I wanted for Christmas. I even wrapped my gifts for him!
