Ethnic Style Labradorite Pendant
This labradorite pendant is a special piece that's unlike any other gemstone pendant in our collection and comes with a magical story. Featuring an impressive polished labradorite cabochon that interacts with the light beautifully, it has been mounted in an ethnic style 925 silver setting. The spectrum of colours that can be seen in this slightly translucent stone as it interacts with the light are really quite fascinating. As tends to be the case with labradorite, it's extremely difficult to capture the full beauty of the iridescence (correctly known as labradorescence or schiller) in a photo because the colour changes and is further enhanced with the reflection of light from different angles so to really appreciate it, the stone needs to be gently but continuously moved around.
Whilst spending time with the team of artisans who make our gemstone pendants for us we were introduced to the newest member of the team who was coming to the end of his training. He showed us this labradorite pendant which he had been working on but hadn't quite finished it. The style of the setting is very traditional in India and unlike sterling silver it's classified as 925 silver which contains a higher percentage of copper. For someone who had only been working in the trade for a few months we were incredibly impressed with the standard of his work and when we returned a few days later and saw the finished product, we knew immediately that we wanted it for our collection.
This unique and very special ladies gemstone pendant was created by a newly trained talented young artisan and we're confident that it will be a much loved piece in someone's collection of gemstone jewellery.
