This shawl pin features a matte green fluorite set into hammered sterling silver. The fluorite is a free-form shape with facets. All of the silver has been oxidized, a process which creates the blackened or antiqued appearance on silver. The raised points have been polished to shine, while the low points retain the oxidized color to show off the depth and details. All metal used in this piece is sterling silver.
The total length of the pin portion is 1.5".
Shawl pins are meant to be used in loose-weave fabrics only; please do not use shawl pins in tight-weave fabrics (such as silk) as it will damage the fabric.
This item is already made, and will be shipped 3-5 business days after the payment is processed. Shipping options will be available to choose upon check-out.
A few notes on caring for oxidized sterling silver: oxidized patina on sterling silver isn't particularly durable to long-term exposure to water (like bathing or swimming) or a lot of scrubbing, as friction is the way to polish silver to shine. Constant exposure to tasks such as hand washing, bathing, swimming, washing dishes, etc., will slowly wear away the oxidized patina leaving a shiny silver finish.
