VISION OF BEAUTY NECKLACE
Sterling Silver Chain Maille with Pearl and Garnet
This is a very long necklace, which would look stunning with a full length, high neck black dress, or a deep V slash neckline. It is definitely a statement piece for a very special occasion. Make it even more special with the Vision of Beauty earrings.
It was difficult to capture the full beauty of this necklace in my photographs and I have tried to show both the detail in the necklace and also how it lies on the neck. The beautiful Biwa pearls are particularly difficult and the photos do not do them full justice. The photographs of me wearing the necklace are to show the two different lengths at which this necklace may be worn – one using the 5cm/2 inch extender chain and one without. Hopefully this will give you some idea of its overall length.
It is a substantial piece, weighing in at approximately 39g including the stones, yet is very comfortable to wear. The Biwa pearls are about 18mm long and variable in width. They have an uneven surface which gives them their amazing lustre as they reflect light beautifully. Each of the five chain maille sections are approximately 40mm long and the drop at the end of the necklace 7.5cm/2.9 inches. The overall length of the whole necklace is approximately 60cm/23.6 inches – between matinee and opera length. The extender chain increases the length by 5cm/2 inches and is finished with a small garnet bead. The chain is sterling silver belcher chain and fastens with a trigger clasp and silver ring. All other components used to make this beauty are also sterling silver.
It has the full UK hallmark in accordance with UK legislation. The hallmark is located on the upper edge – on top – of the clasp ring.

This amazing necklace was a result of a jewellery class I took very early on in my jewellery making. We made something very similar in base metal rings and glass beads. I later found out that the weave was called Celtic Visions and designed this piece using precious metal, gemstones and pearls.
