Owning and wearing a statement necklace adds instant glamour and completes any outfit. Whether you wear a plain white T-shirt with a blazer, a black dress, corporate suit or evening dress, adding a "statement necklace" will transform the look of what you wear from simple to WOW.
You can wear them from day to night. A word of advice, it is not recommended to wear other large pieces of jewelry with statement necklaces as it would look too overpowering since the eyes would be drawn away from the necklace.
Definitely a wise investment for a piece you will wear for many years.
This magnificent wearable work of art was inspired from the vintage era when slide bracelets were adorned and collected by many ladies. Slide bracelets are as unique as the individual who wears them.
Each slide is handmade and set with vibrant gemstones of assorted sizes, colors and shapes--gems included are scarab turquoise, coral, garnet, cameo, amethyst, angel skin coral, mother of pearl, garnet, tourmalines, opal, turquoise. All stones are genuine.
Slides are very unique and individual in design, texture and are well balanced with the way the large and medium slides are laid out. The extra large angel skin coral cameo is the focal point as your eyes are drawn to them.
Some of the stones have natural markings while others have small fine markings since the stones are all recycled from vintage pieces of jewelery. They were given a new look in this vintage inspired neck-piece. In many ways, this is a vintage piece with artisan appeal.
Entire piece is sterling silver and is stamped on the large cameo on the back. Chain measures 20 inches when completely open and is stamped sterling. Entire piece weighs 40 grams. Each slide is divided by a bead. Stones are bezel and prong set.
You can wear this statement necklace with every color in your wardrobe and wear it at its original length, or you can wear it shorter by having a jump ring attached to the chain.
