Sterling Silver Blue Gemstone necklace.
The varying tones of blue in these Lapis Lazuli gemstone in faceted cubes is combined with the Sterling Silver beads for a subtle, elegant, casual look. The graduated size stones are set in a straight line style in the centre of the neckline with diamond dusted .925 Sterling Silver beads to separate and highlight the larger centre bead. The largest bead is approx 8mm cube , the accenting darker blue Lapis Lazuli beads are approx. 4mm cube. The total length of the necklace is approx 39.5cm (16 inches) I have used a large size link in the chain for a more casual look. All metal is .925 Sterling Silver, nickel and lead free.
