Larimar Egyptian Revival Personalized Statement Necklace ~ Bijoux Art Deco
This stunning Art Deco/Egyptian Revival bib necklace is the perfect statement piece for the woman who wants to show her style and appreciation for bygone days and the elegance of the flapper era.
Think "The Great Gatsby" or "Downton Abbey" and the refined and chic styles of the Roaring 20's.
I have created this piece using a mix of materials ranging from the inexpensive aqua blue acrylic beads to the spectacular drop of genuine Larimar gemstone in Sterling Silver!
Larimar is poised to become one of the most popular gemstones of the spring and summer runway, nudging turquoise aside for the foreseeable future. Larimar is also known as "Caribbean Turquoise" or "Atlantis Stone" and can only be found under the seabed off the coast of the Dominican Republic, making it very unique and valuable.
The Larimar cabochon is approximately 1 inch x .75 inch (25x20mm) and I have set it in a sterling silver bezel. I have then used silver plated copper jewelry wire to hand wire it to a vintage German acrylic component in the style of the Egyptian revival movement. The style is the "wings of Isis". The chain is made up of hand wired, aqua blue beads in a combination of aqua blue glass pearls and flattened round acrylic beads with gold accents to match the gold painted details of the wings. I have finished the necklace with silver plated brass figaro chain and a simple lobster clasp. The entire necklace is 20 inches (50 cm) in length and it lays beautifully on the breastbone.
By using this combination of less expensive accents and the very valuable Larimar, I have created an affordable yet unique piece for the discerning woman with a more modest budget.
I will even personalize this necklace for you AT NO EXTRA CHARGE :) Just let me know which initial you want and I will hand stamp it onto a charm to be added to the clasp prior to shipping.
