Segments of bar & link chain are joined together with wrapped faceted gemstone beads which sparkle in the light like stars. The chain is finished with a hook clasp, and the opposite end of the chain is accented by a hand-detailed crescent moon charm. 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 necklace is 18". The wearable length of the necklace is adjustable, as the hook fits securely through any beaded link in the chain.
* The pictures show necklace with black tourmaline and tourmalinated quartz beads, but you have the option to pick other stones from the selection available. Currently available options are black tourmaline, amethyst, peridot, white moonstone, tourmalinated quartz, smoky quartz, and almandine garnet.

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.
