The lovely gem lapis lazuli has some rather poetic lore, having been revered by the Egyptians and thus they named it "the stone of heaven". The vintage silver and lapis Kuchi cross displays true mastery in artisanship. Intricate metal wirework surround the deep blue lapis stones. The chain is a rosary inspired length of sterling silver wire wrapped lapis and vintage Turkish silver. The Turkish beads were handmade with a pierced design and have a lovely patina from age. Ends with a sterling silver hook, vintage extension chain, and vintage sterling silver cross medal.
Decadent, long bejeweled Gypsy earrings featuring hand hammered oxidized sterling silver hoops, adorned with garnet and genuine pearls in mulberry, plum, and wine hues. At the bottom dangle twin vintage silver French rose medals with a rich natural patina. Antiqued sterling hooks. Total length: 4 inches
