Long Teal Blue Sapphire and Gold Layering Wrap Hand Knotted Necklace
I was so drawn to the color of these tiny sapphire beads. It's difficult to describe, they range from a nearly transparent clear to soft grey then a teal - blue-green or sea green ranging from light to deep. These gemstones are natural and untreated with such a lovely color!
Each sapphire has perfect micro facetting for an eye-catching sparkle factor. They are round and very small, measuring only 2.5mm in diameter. Each one has been expertly hand-knotted along the full length of pure silk jeweler cord. I've arranged the stones in an ombre fashion so they fade from light to dark throughout the necklace. Sprinkled throughout the piece are solid gold tube beads that measure 1.1mm in diameter and about 4mm long.
This piece is adjustable in length from 36.5 to 40 inches due to the 3-inch solid gold extension chain and can be worn several ways. Wear it as a long single strand necklace for an elegant minimalist piece, or go with doubled-up, layered, or as a bracelet wrap.
