The perfect pop of unexpected color! A gorgeous faceted nugget of olivine jade is set in a pinned gold bail and suspended on a long leather necklace. Three little grossular garnet stones dangle from a knot on one side. The necklace has a slide in the back, so you can wear it at any length. 14k gold fill.
About Olivine Jade: Olivine Jade is somewhat translucent and color ranges from a light olive to a deep forest green. Both beautiful and durable, jade has been used since prehistoric times for its ornamental and practical qualities. Since at least 2950 BC, jade has been treasured in China as the royal gemstone, yu. The word yu is used in Chinese to call something precious, as in English we use gold.
About 14k gold fill: 14K gold filled wire is a professional jewelers grade wire. Gold filled wire is not plated. It is a tube of solid 14K gold mechanically bonded to a brass or silver base. There is 100 times more gold in gold filled than in gold plate wire. This layer of gold must be a minimum of 1/20th of the total metal weight to be called gold filled. The color looks exactly like 14k gold. It is tarnish-resistant, safe for sensitive skin and unlike gold plate, it will not wear off. It is a great way to enjoy affordable gold jewelry.
