Bi-color Sapphire Necklace
A bi-color sapphire necklace handcrafted in 14k yellow gold and sterling silver. This lovely natural sapphire features a denium blue hue along with creme tones and the checkerboard cut faceting adds to the stone's uniqueness. The links that the sapphire hangs from have a hammered texture and have been oxidized to create a contrast agianst the bright sterling silver and the yellow gold. Total length of the necklace measures 20 inches. The dimensions of the pendant measures 35mm from the base to the top of the gold accent and 15mm in width. Total weight of the sapphire is 13.15ctw
Silver and Gold Jewelry Care
I recommend using a mild soap to clean jewelry with a silver and gold mix. Dilute a mild soap like a dish soap and use a soft cloth to wipe the item clean, rinse and pat dry. I do not recommend using a traditional jewelry cleaner, the cleaner is too harsh on sterling silver and will cause discoloration. To remove tarnish I recommend using a silver polishing cloth.
Since this piece has also been oxidized, do not clean with a silver cleaner. The silver cleaner will remove the oxidization.
