Unlike most amazonite from Brazil and other locations, Russian amazonite tends to be a darker green-blue color with striations, such as seen in this colorful 16" necklace. The complementary color of rose-pink makes for a striking combination of gemstones and Swarovski crystals, with boldness like the Russian aristocrats of old. The strands meet in the center in a loop of rose quartz and Czech glass. Smaller scale earrings in Swarovski crystal and sterling silver French hook earwires are included.

Cost: $138.00 USD

Length: necklace - 16"

Materials:

  • Russian amazonite beads
  • rose quartz beads
  • lapis lazuli chips
  • Swarovski crystal beads
  • Swarovski crystal rondelles
  • Czech glass beads
  • Japanese glass seedbeads
  • sterling silver French hook earwires
  • sterling silver toggle clasp
  • Power Pro moderate duty braided Spectra Fiber™ cord (30 lb. load test)

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

The beads and beading cord should withstand determined toddler tugs and pulls. As with all beaded jewelry: do not let young toddlers chew on it.

This bold 16" necklace can be worn with higher necklines, such as boatnecks and crewnecks, as well as moderate scoop necks and v-necks. Deeper necklines may make the necklace appear out of proportion.
