This one-of-kind necklace exudes the warmth and sparkle that comes from light bouncing back and forth between the thousands of facets of one hundred and four carats of Oregon sunstone gemstones, our state gem. The color of the sunstones along with the many shimmering threads of suspended copper known as schiller in nearly every gemstone, adds warmth and a scintillating effect.
The sunstones used in this beauty are from the Dust Devil Mining Company located in central Oregon. The provenance is identified in a Certificate of Authenticity that was provided at the time of purchase in March of 2010. The certificate also states that the sunstones used in the creation of this necklace are natural and untreated; and that the color grade of the sunstones are AA Red (Light-Medium Red).
The rondelle beads measure 6mm x 3mm and the briolette pendant measures 8mm x 16mm. The 14 karat yellow gold bi-cone shape beads measure 3mm x 3mm. The toggle clasp is fashioned with a decorative twist design and has an extension of 1". The necklace measures 24" in total length, the pendant adds an additional ~1" in length, so from the toggle clasp to the bottom of the briolette, the measurement would be ~13". #90 #A.
