Dumortierite and lapis lazuli are the deep blue-purple colors of long winter evenings. The matte dumortierite gemstones in this 16"-17" necklace are color-enhanced to emphasize the purple hues. The tapered lapis lazuli gemstones are flecked with pyrite, a common occurrence in this gemstone which is a mixture of the minerals lazurite, calcite, and pyrite. The gemstones are handknotted with heavyweight pure silk cord for outstanding drape and strength. The length of the necklace can be adjusted with the white bronze hook & eye clasp.

Cost: $58.00 USD

Length: necklace - 16"-17"


  • dumortierite beads
  • lapis lazuli beads
  • sterling silver components
  • white bronze hook & eye clasp
  • pure silk cord

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

The materials and cord in this necklace are robust to most tugs and pulls, but care should be taken to prevent hard impacts which can distort the knotted silk or damage the softer lapis gemstones. As with all beaded jewelry: do not let young toddlers chew on it.

This 16-17" necklace works best with high necklines, though the heavier weight of the gemstones enable the necklace to lie nicely with a variety of necklines and fabrics.
