Peridot Hand Knotted Necklace
Handmade Peridot Hand Knotted Necklace: 6-8mm oval peridot beads hand knotted with sterling silver findings. Length: 16″. Optional 2″ sterling silver length extender with sterling silver lotus.
Peridot is the gem variety of the mineral olivine. The intensity and tint of the unique green color depends on how much iron is contained in the crystal structure, so the shade of individual peridots can vary from yellowish green to greenish yellow to brownish green. It is the traditionally classic August birthstone and the gemstone that commemorates the 16th wedding anniversary. Due to their vibrant color in low light, they’ve also taken on the name and notoriety as the “evening Emeralds”.
Hand knotting is a very time consuming process but the end result is unmatched. Intentionally placed knots are secured by hand for longevity and aesthetics. The high-quality gemstones provide a substantial weight and beautiful drape that looks and feels luxurious. Sterling silver findings and lobster clasp finish off this beautiful necklace.
