This stunning necklace began with some amazing genuine gemstone quality Butter Jade stones that Stacy hand picked strand by strand from the source. Stacy then strung all the gemstone on study stainless steel wire and completed the necklace with a silver lobster claw clasp. The finished necklace measures 21" without the pendant
The pendant is a genuine piece of polished 40x20mm Coffee Mookite stone, in cabochon cut that has been meticulously polished. Jack made a custom sterling silver surround and bail for it, that makes it removable.
you can slide the bail over the lobster clasp to take the stone off and mix and match other necklaces whenever you like! A cutout of a South African Sun bird, on the back of the silver should remind you of the African landscape where the Butter Jade was found! the finished pendant measures about 1.25 inches wide and 2.5inches tall.
