Pashtun Silver and Onyx Necklace.

Sorry, this necklace is no longer available. We may however, still have a similar one.

 

This elegant necklace is made up with a Tribal pendant but because of the matte Black Onyx beads would work just as well as day wear, an evening out or worn to work.

Combining slightly "primitive" hand punched rectangular silver Pashtun Pendant from Pakistan, with a stylized possibly "floral" motif hammered into the surface then the face was very, very lightly gold washed (all that remains is a subtle hint of a golden dusk.)

This pendant is threaded onto the middle of a necklace of plain 6 mm matte Black Onyx beads, ending with a Karen Silver tube and a Sterling Silver "S" hook.

We've used durable multi stranded Tiger Tail to thread them, which is the strongest we can get, however DON'T stretch or scrunch it as you can irreparably kink it if you do.

The sterling silver beads have some oxidation already, however when they need it they will respond well to a gentle polishing (of each bead whilst holding the stones on either side firmly) with a dry "Silver Polishing Cloth" but don't bend or stretch it by rubbing too hard.

I'd avoid polishing the actual pendant as you'll probably just irreplacably rub off the gold revealing shiny silver underneath.

Oh, and of course being a mix of "gold and silver" in one neck you might wear it with either as they'll both match ie rings etc. but the gilding is quite subtle and can easily be worn by some one who "only wears silver" !

(You may also want to checkout ON105 which is very similar but has silver bells and a more definite gilding.)
