This exceptional Necklace showcases an Australian Chrysocolla, Chrysoprase and Sterling Silver Pendant by Australian artist Wendy Bergamin. The center stone is Australian Chrysocolla, which has a marbled pattern of turquoise and green with traces of reddish-brown. The Chrysocolla is cut in a triangular shape with a slightly domed crown, and set in a raised Sterling Silver Bezel with a sawtooth edge. The stone sits on 3 offset plates of Sterling Silver, 2 of which have a snakeskin pattern created by running the Silver through a rolling mill. The alternating patterns are striking. At the top of the Pendant is a green oval Chrysoprase stone, wrapped in a sawtooth Sterling Silver Bezel. The Pendant has a custom Bail, and is stamped on the back with the artist's hallmark and "925." We've paired this great piece with green Turquoise Ovals, blue Turquoise Rounds, and Sterling Silver Rounds. On either side of the Pendant there are 2 sets of 4mm and 6mm Sterling Rounds, which segue into 2 strands of 7mm blue Turquoise Rounds. The blue Turquoise transitions to 4 strands of green Turquoise Ovals, which are 5-by-8mm in dimension. The blues, greens and Silver are a perfect match to the hues in the Pendant. The Necklace is finished with Sterling Rounds and Toggle Clasp and adorned with a Southwest Designs Sterling Charm. The piece weighs 132 grams and is 20-3/4 inches long plus the Pendant, which is 2-3/4 inches by 2-3/8 inches in dimension.
