This is a vintage pendant that features a huge labradorite stone! This is sterling silver pendant. The stone is a large oval shape. It has color flashes in fabulous rainbows of blue, purple and golds shades. It is set into a sterling bezel. The bezel is simple and wide to set of the gorgeous stone.

I lightly polish my vintage silver as some people like the aged patina. If you want me to polish it before shipping, just let me know! I am not an expert on vintage jewelry, but I do buy and sell what I love! Since these items are vintage, they may have a wonderful aged patina and are not meant or expected to look brand new. I treasure their imperfections as part of their charm and history.
