This bejewelled beauty is made up of many natural genuine grade C facated EMERALDS in varying shapes. Grade C Emeralds usually have a variety of high-relief inclusions all over their bodies. These inclusions can make a stone appear 90 to 100% opaque. C emeralds may also have yellow iron oxide stains, surface reaching cracks, black inclusions, 2 and 3-phase inclusions, mineral needles running throughout, clouds, and/or pinpoints. These are all normal for this grade of stone and shouldn’t be considered faulty or damaged. It all adds to the charm of this magnificent bohemian piece! Emerald was considered a symbol of eternal life in ancient Egypt, a gift of ‘Thoth’ the god of wisdom and was a favourite jewel of Queen Cleopatra. Known as the “Stone of Successful Love”, Emerald is a classic stone of love and romance, and is reputed to bring both passion and domestic bliss with unconditional love. Emerald is the birthstone of May. The necklace is made up of four strands of slightly different lengths. They all join together at the back with a chunky, decorative trigger clasp. There are also decorative gold on silver beads randomly placed throughout the necklace for an added eclectic look. Our items are posted in a presentation box with no price tags attached.
