Charmingly simple yet intriguingly textured, this elegant necklace is surprisingly versatile. Handmade delicate circles of Argentium sterling silver are punctuated at random intervals with handwrapped circles of yellow or rose goldfill, for a statement necklace with an extensive vocabulary. (Joie de vivre being a favorite phrase.) Clasp is hand hammered Argentiun sterling silver "S" shape, which can secure any ring for a more versatile necklace wardrobe. Shown here with matching earrings, this design is also available in a sturdier bracelet.
Price will vary according to length desired and the volatility of the precious metals market - prices here based on a $30/oz. silver spot price.
Argentium sterling silver is a modern tarnish-resistant sterling silver alloy which modifies the traditional alloy (92.5% silver + 7.5% copper) by replacing some of the copper with the metalloid germanium. As it retains the 92.5% silver content of the traditional alloy, it is still referred to as sterling silver. (Wikipedia)
