About the Item

This lovely necklace features multi-colored, earthy pyrite beads and a tiger iron pendant that has been hand wrapped in reclaimed sterling silver wire. It is finished with an authentic Bali silver toggle clasp.

Traditionally, gemstones used in jewelry have been divided into precious and semi-precious categories. Gems were deemed "precious" largely based on a history of religious or ceremonial use, as well as rarity. The four cardinal precious gems are diamond, ruby, sapphire and emerald.

Semi-precious stones are pretty much everything else. There are more than 130 species of minerals that have been cut into gems, with 50 species in common use. Strictly speaking, gems such as pearls, coral, ivory, jet, amber and mother of pearl are not technically stone at all (they are all organic materials), but are considered semi-precious stones for purposes of jewelry making.

{Measurements}
Please be sure to take note of the sizes that are carefully listed here as items will appear larger on your computer monitor than they actually are.
