The pendant is suspended from a 16 inch silver snake chain which is 1.5 mm thick.
The diameter of the pendant measures approximately 47 mm whilst the shell itself has a diameter of 29mm. The weight of the pendant without the chain is roughly 12 grams. Only pure sterling silver is used throughout and this quality necklace is conveyed in a gift box.
The pendant is 5 mm deep giving the necklace a chunky look despite its relative medium weight.
-A stunning blue shell silver necklace. The large New Zealand Paua shell is cut into a round shape bordered by a strip of sterling silver. The pendant bale has been meticulously tooled with an ornate pattern. The price includes the smooth snake chain, which does not detract the eye away from the pendant thereby keeping the focus on the lovely blue shell.
The reverse side of the pendant shows the natural green colours of the paua-shell. Those colours are brought to life with a special treatment. Essentially the fascias of the shell has been mildly treated with a light blue stain which also protects the shell with a light varnish layer.
As you can see from the image the chain is attached by a spring loaded ring clasp. The chain is 1.5 mm thick and has a smooth, silky feel to it.
