This hand-knotted ombre hued 18" necklace of grossular garnet and freshwater pearl has amazing drape and fluidity; it bends and trails like new growth thanks to the superior flexibility and strength of silk thread. Grossular garnet may be other colors than green - white, pink, orange - but most marketed for jewelry is green. Hessonite garnet - another garnet found in jewelry components - is the reddish-brown variety of the calcium-rich grossular garnet, and tsavorite garnet is the name given to gem quality emerald green variety of grossular garnet. This necklace shows the range of colors from nearly white to deep green in homage to the enduring process of renewal.

Cost: $94.00 USD

Length: necklace - 18"

Materials:

  • faceted grossular garnet beads
  • freshwater pearls
  • sterling silver toggle clasp
  • silk thread

Care & cleaning: Silk thread may be frayed or severed through prolonged exposure to rough or sharp edges; store necklace flat when not in use to prevent stretching or fraying thread. Clean with warm soapy water and avoid chemical or abrasive cleaners. Use a soft jewelry polishing cloth to clean tarnish appearing on silver.

The silk thread is strong but can be stretched with determined tugging which can distort the spacing between knots. As with all beaded jewelry: do not let young toddlers chew on it.
