Textured Silver & Ruby Pendant All Handmade Reticulated Sterling
Reticulated Sterling Silver necklace with a drop of brilliant Ruby! (lab-made) On the chain are beads natural of Garnets. Uniquely beautiful, this pendant is truly one of a kind. This necklace hangs on a 19" sterling chain.
The reticulation process is where you take big flame (torch) and heat the metal until it "wrinkles' and starts to get texture. It will almost be at the melting point. I've added bits of fine silver during the heating process, which fused together, to add more of a mountainous texture.
This pendant measures 7/8" long from the top the ring the chain goes through. It is 1 1/8"wide. I've added a silver tube setting and set a lab-grown 5 mm Ruby. On the chain, I've added small natural Garnet beads. The metals used are Sterling Silver and Fine Silver. The stones are Lab-grown Ruby and Natural Garnet. The chain is around 19" long and is Sterling Silver.
