"Achetes" Natural Agate Necklace
Silver Wire Collection. Product Code: SWCN4A
Greek legend states that agate was found in the river Achates, which is in Sicily - hence the name for this natural agate with oxidised silver faceted teardrop pendant. The river's name has since changed and is called Drillo. It is still a major source of Agate.
The natural colour of this stunningly faceted stone is set against a purposely oxidised silver wrap; with the same process being carried out on the silver chain. A ring is handmade and soldered, then threaded through the wire wrap to ensure that the necklace hangs and moves with you, rather than being static on the chain. A stunning semi-precious gemstone with clear beauty only overshadowed by that of the wearer!
