The Evening Leaves Pendant features a stunning orange rosecut sapphire. Depending on the light, it ranges from a maroon-orange to a brown-orange, making it the perfect gem for an autumn piece! It is adorned with real leaves cast in sterling silver, so the natural forms and textures are preserved. 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. The pendant measures 1" tall and 1.25" wide at its widest point. All metal used in this piece is sterling silver.

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.
