Held on a 1 mm sterling silver diamond-cut chain, is a graded hand-formed cabochon of pure, not "enhanced" lapis lazuli. The wires and ball forming this pendant are sterling silver, the front being textured gallery wire, the remainder being 20-gauge, for a total of over thirty inches of sterling silver wire. The ball at the top is likewise sterling silver. Delicate and intriquing, the lapis contains the gold flecks present in high-quality lapis. Please note: this is a graded gemstone evidencing higher quality that the human-enhanced versions.
