A hand fabricated Sterling Silver 5 link chain, oxidised and gilded in 24 karat Gold for dramatic effect.
These earrings are individually hand crafted in Sterling Silver and bonded with 24 karat Yellow Gold using an ancient gilding technique.
Gold accents are hand cut and positioned organically before bonding to Silver, making each piece one of a kind. As such, variations are to be expected between each unique piece of jewelry.
Earrings measure just under 3 inches long and have Sterling Silver posts and backings.
*Final pair has been heavily discounted due to slight uneveness in patina.
5 Link Gilded Chain Earrings | 24 karat Gold + Blackened Sterling Silver
Over time, and with handling, patina (blackened area) will develop its own unique character. High points/areas of most contact will lighten to reveal and highlight the organic faceted texture of the silver and give the piece new dimension as it ages. A protective coating has been applied to prolong this process, however it is natural and to be expected nonetheless.
To slow changes to the finish of your jewelry, keep it away from liquids, soaps, cosmetics, and other chemicals. Remember to remove your jewelry before any wet, rough, or messy activity (such as bathing, swimming, exercising, or using household cleaning products). Jewelry cleaning products, such as TarnX tarnish remover, are NOT recommended for oxidized pieces, as they will strip the intentional patina.
For any who are interested, patina touch-ups may be arranged for a small fee + shipping costs. To arrange, please feel free to get in touch via firstname.lastname@example.org.
