Necklaces / Pendants by Jessica Briggs This neckpiece has a hidden fastening and continuous design. It can be worn with either the gold side closest to the face, or the silver.The textured pattern is burnished to highlight spots in order to reflect light........the darker spots you see in the photo have no variation in colour but have just been captured in the image appearing darker. When being worn, light bounces around the spots, giving life to the piece. Features Primary Material : silver Other Materials : 23.5ct gold Length (inches) : 16.5 One of a Kind : No Metal : gold and silver Hallmarked : Yes Cleaning Instructions Clean the silver areas only with a cotton bud dipped in Silver Clean solution. Rub gently, rinse in clean water and pat dry.It is always best to store the necklace in its box, wrapped in acid free tissue paper, to prevent oxidation/discolouring.Avoid spraying perfume onto jewellery as this will tarnish it.
