This Josephine's Crown statement necklace is the crowning jewel of the Metallic Collection. This piece was a labor of love, with every tiny element hand fabricated over the course of several days. Meticulously crafted and highly polished accents converge to form a striking shadowbox around a gorgeous cabochon of Josephine's Crown. Hand texturing around the bezel adds depth to the shadowbox. Pendant hangs from a decorative yet sturdy 22" long chain, with additional option to wear at 18". Back of the pendant has been polished to a high shine and stamped with artist initials and Sterling purity mark. Comprised entirely of Fine and Sterling Silver.
This pendant is truly a one of a kind collector's piece.

This gorgeous material is called "Josephine's Crown" because it comes from Josephine County in southern Oregon. It is "old stock" collectors' grade material, as Josephine's Crown is no longer being mined today. Josephine's Crown was once found deep under ground near gold and silver mines, and its bold metallic flashes are comprised of pyrite, chalcopyrite, various sulfides, and sometimes trace amounts of gold, platinum, copper, and silver as well. The black and white background mineral is quartz. This rare combination of minerals makes for a beautifully dramatic effect. As Josephine's Crown is no longer being mined today, it will only increase in value and rarity over time, making it a wonderful stone for collector's pieces.
