Amethyst necklace pendant set in antiqued black sterling silver. This special gemstone has a butterfly design cut into the back of the gem! Crafted right here in our rural Oregon studio! Invest in ethical fine jewelry that is beautiful, high quality, and will stand the test of time.
Pendant only; chain not included. Please do not polish black silver or use tarnish remover as it will damage the black finish, which is a surface application only. The metal under the finish is standard shiny sterling silver; there is no such thing as silver which is black all the way through. The antiquing applies what is essentially an intense tarnish to the surface, and the patina will continue to develop as living art in reaction to how it is worn and stored.
Recycled Precious Metal with Ethically Sourced Gems
Our gems are ethically sourced with care and knowledge. They are real, come from small businesses, and support small miners and families around the globe. Rather than support destructive mining practices, we use reclaimed precious metals. They are melted down and refined to produce settings identical in quality and purity to newly mined metals without the environmental and human impact.
Gems are individual pieces of nature's art and have minor variation in pattern, color, size, and shape. Unlike synthetic gems, few are exactly alike. Exact size may vary +/- .20mm. When choosing a size, remember that the pictures are magnified close-ups.
