Opalescent Topaz Silver Chain Pendant Necklace, Single Stone Silver Necklace
This beautiful Sterling Silver Traditional Opalescent Topaz Bridal Necklace is another of our "updated traditional with a twist" designs. This sterling silver filigree solitaire pendant features a bright and sparkling laboratory grown Opalescent Topaz that measures 6 mm in diameter and weighs almost 1 carat. Opalescent Topaz is created by bonding a metallic salt to the bottom of the faceted stone. This treatment both makes it more durable and gives it the trademark hypnotic color.
The vintage-inspired scroll mounting are the perfect blend - delicate detailing with substantial prongs to hold your stones safe. This unusual mounting features filigree detailing below the stone and delicate tracery at the bale. We finish this beautiful pendant with a dainty Sterling Silver oval-link chain and lobster claw closure, and it arrives packaged for gift giving.
The history of necklaces tracks back to 40,000 years, during the Stone Age. The oldest necklaces were made of purely natural materials and included colorful and interesting natural elements. Metal chain didn't become possible until the Bronze Age, and necklaces became more elaborate in the second century A.D. when assorted gems were introduced. Gem cutting techniques developed during the Renaissance led to the first solitaire style pendants, which have been a classic jewelry element for centuries.
