Popular Obsidian Necklace

Obsidian Necklace

Obsidian is a naturally occurring glass that has been prized since prehistoric times, when it was used to make sharp blades and arrowheads. This practice prevailed during pre-Hispanic times, when obsidian was important for the economic, social and political aspects of civilization. Today, obsidian is widely used in ornamentation, a craft mastered by talented jewelry-smiths across the world. They contribute traditional, contemporary and original designs to Novica's Obsidian Necklace collection.

Silversmiths in Mexico and Peru honor their people's artistic legacy by replicating pre-Hispanic glyphs on obsidian pendants similar to those featured in pyramids, hand-woven area rugs and wall hangings.

Mahogany obsidian is brown, snowflake obsidian is speckled, and both are featured in our Obsidian Necklace collection. Black obsidian remains a favorite for a handcrafted necklace. It can be paired with a glistening black handbag for an original ensemble!
