Wire-Wrapped Bismuth Crystal Pendant Necklace in Antiqued Sterling Silver


This futuristic pendant was made with a multi-colored bismuth crystal, wrapped in solid Sterling silver wire and framed by luscious silver coils and weaves. The wire was oxidized naturally with egg yolk, then sealed in clear lacquer to resist tarnish and preserve the aged finish of the pendant over time. The whole pendant measures 35x28x14mm (1.4" x 1.1" x 0.6") and comes suspended on an 18" Sterling silver chain. This is truly a one-of-a-kind piece, since each and every bismuth crystal is unique and each is wrapped to echo the dimensions and morphology of the crystal. Ethereal blue, green, yellow and orange hues dance across the steps of the crystal as it turns in the light. Truly a piece of wearable art!

Bismuth is naturally a silvery-white color as a fresh crystal but acquires it's colorful, iridescent surface due to it's exposure to air and oxidation of it's surface. The spiral stair stepped structure of a bismuth crystal is the result of a higher growth rate around the outside edges than on the inside edges. The variations in the thickness of the oxide layer that forms on the surface of the crystal causes different wavelengths of light to interfere upon reflection, thus displaying a rainbow of colors. WOW!

This piece comes in a luxurious, black velvet jeweler's box, contained in a cardboard outer shell (so you can wrap the box without damaging the velvet); perfect for gift-giving! This is an heirloom-quality piece you can treasure for many years to come! This ships fully-insured and with international tracking, for your convenience and peace of mind.

*Comes with bismuth jewelry care card.
