Double Strand of Natural Fluorite and Natural White Cultured Freshwater Pearls on Vermeil

  • This necklace is both pretty and striking. It takes full advantage of the natural array of rainbow colours in fluorite, giving a full blast of rainbow pastels.

  • The fluorite is a lantern shaped bead (16 mm) and ranges in colour from a sea green, to emerald, teal blue, to deep amethyst and to soft lilac.

  • In between each of the pairs of coloured lantern beads, a large, baroque, natural white, cultured freshwater pearl (12 mm) has been placed to create contrast and luxury.

  • The strands feed into two, handmade, vintage, traditional Afghan melon beads (14 mm), created using 18ct gold on silver on hardened resin, a technique learned from the craftsmen who came to Afghanistan in 330 BC with Alexander the Great.

  • A 14ct gold vermeil toggle clasp has been used because toggle clasps are easy to use and secure. My silver name label is attached at the clasp.

  • The necklaces come, like all my necklaces, with its own colour co-ordinated silk brocaded pouch bag, made by a Shanghai tailor.

  • The necklace is 18 inches long (45.5 cm).
