LAVONNE is an unusual and unique sterling silver pendant. The texture is achieved using a technique called reticulation. Essentially this involves repeated heating of the sterling silver to achieve a layer of fine (100% pure) silver on the surface. Once this is present, the torch flame is targeted on specific areas of the surface, causing the fine silver to melt and run - removing the flame abruptly causes the surface to crumple and fold into random patterns. As such, the effect can never be repeated exactly, making each piece truly unique.
This pendant has a drop of 6 cm and is approximately 1.5 cm at its widest point. The drop is finished off with a stunningly crisp and bright, bezel set, 5 mm round cubic zirconia gemstone. Among the best simulated diamonds available, the gemstone positively dances with rainbows of reflected light.
As the piece is quite long it is probably best worn high up around the neck, at the throat. It thus comes with an elegant solid silver rigid wire choker, with a decorative ball & hook catch. The silver choker is 1.5 mm thick and 42 cm around.
