Dendritic Quartz Diamond Drop Necklace
This necklace displays dendritic quartz at its best. This high quality, square cut gem is a variety of quartz which is valued for its inclusions. Quartz is host to maganese, which crystalizes inside the stone much like ice or frost does on a window. It creates branch, like patterns with gradients of color that are unique to each stone. This unique beauty sits in a prong setting of sterling silver. The pendant measures 18mm in diameter with a full length of 30mm, which includes the silver bail. I paired the pendant to a two toned, double chain to bring out some of the gold inclusions within the stone. The chain consists of one strand of a gold filled, curb chain and one strand of an oxidized, sterling silver box chain. The length of the chain is 18".
