Virgo is an earth sign historically represented by the goddess of wheat and agriculture, an association that speaks to Virgo’s deep-rooted presence in the material world. Virgos are logical, practical, and systematic in their approach to life. This earth sign is a perfectionist at heart and isn’t afraid to improve skills through diligent and consistent practice. Virgos will love this forged sterling silver medallion, finished with a darling sapphire stone wrapped in 14k gold fill. Chain measures 19-20” with lobster clap and adjustable length chain closure. Sterling silver, which has been oxidized and hand polished for an antique finish. If you would prefer a different stone, I would be glad to help you. All 12 Zodiac signs are available.
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.
About Sapphire: Sapphire is one of the two gem varieties of corundum, the other being the red ruby. The sapphire is a very sacred stone in folklore. It was said to be the Stone of Truth and predates the diamond in wedding rings as a symbol of fidelity and consistency. This stone was said to be so holy that it could strike down venomous creatures and cause evil spirits to flee at the sight of it. In the bible, sapphire is consistently described as being around the Throne of God. Sapphire was one of the designated precious stones of the high priest's breastplate (Exodus 28:15).
