The Briar Necklace. A silver obsidian statement necklace that will undoubtedly become a favorite.
Definitely a show stopper! Apache Tears is a type of obsidian, usually semitransparent and brownish black in color. Not only does this stone show the black at the outer edges, it looks more gray at the center. Not to mention the brown rivers flowing through. The white valleys are raw unpolished areas. Genuinely a spectacular stone.
The gemstone sits nestled within fine silver bezel frame. Additionally, a decorative Argentium silver branch with leaves accents the stone. As well as acting as the connector to the chain.
A series of handcrafted “petals” make up the chain. Which is statement worthy in itself. The clasp on this silver obsidian statement necklace is a toggle design.
All components of this pendant necklace, including the clasp, chain, toggle leaves and branch are hand crafted. The bezels are also hand crafted but from fine silver, not Argentium.
Put all these components together, the result is simply a spectacular gemstone necklace.
Overall length is approximately 16 inches with the pendant adding an additional 2.25 inches.
- This particular type of obsidian is found in the south-western USA and Mexico.
- This stone is only found in the historical territory of the Apache Tribe.
- They are powerful healing stones for grief.
