Material: 18k yellow gold, oxidized silver

Stone Type/Carat Weight: South Sea Pearl

Dimensions: 18″

This is a beautiful South Sea pearl necklace on oxidized silver serpentine chain with two small 18k yellow gold Crownwork® finials and small lilypad clasp. Oxidized silver has a beautiful historic feel for jewelry ( think Austro-Hungarian empire ) and is a wonderful contrast to gold so for necklaces it looks rich and strong. When its oxidized really polished black, the stone pops with rich saturated color and look luxurious. The design inspiration for the finials are the Moores in Spain. It’s my translation of the columns in the Alluhumbra Palace. The design is a very old world form that fits jewelry perfectly and I use it in many configurations throughout the collection. The lilypad clasp is a way for me to finish a piece of jewelry with a personal design touch. The clasp is very safe and easy to open and close. Its something that shows the true nature of the piece being made my hand not manufactured.

Pearls truly are one of nature’s gift to us. They are a mixture of mineral and organic material formed within the soft living tissue of a shelled mollusk. When dirt gets inside the shell it is an irritant to the pearl. The pearl releases albite (the saliva) that glues onto the pearl to smooth it out. Pearls represent purity, honesty, integrity and wisdom. They are the birthstone for June and make the perfect gift (especially for yourself)

Crownwork® Friends

What is Crownwork®?

Crownwork® is the grid like pattern that features in all Ray Griffiths designs.

Crownwork®’s design roots are in Ray’s early training restoring Vintage European Suites of Jewelry. Aside from the distinctive design element and being the signature of Ray’s work, Crownwork® takes much of the weight from the jewelry, allowing Ray’s designs to retain visual heft yet remain light and easy to wear.
