This necklace is one of my favorites - I love the combination of colors; the richness of the honey agate and the coolness of the aquamarine.
The Jeanine Necklace is comprised of 25mm honey agate faceted barrel beads framed by intricate vermeil accent beads. It is 18 1/2 inches long (not including the drop of the aquamarine pendant) and is finished with two twisted gold filled rings which secure the necklace to the hand forged 14K gold filled horseshoe detail from which hangs a carved aquamarine pendant measuring 2 inches in length by 1 1/2 inches in width. The horseshoe piece is also the closure, so the necklace secures to the front as opposed to the back of the neck.
This is one of two necklaces of this design, the first one which I created for myself will not be sold and will not be recreated.
