Gold Plated Onyx 16 to 18 Inch Necklaces
The design is what caught my eye in this set (I have the earrings too) but the craftsmanship estonished me. The onyx is just pure beauty! The vermeil is still as shinny as it was the day I got it. The only down side perhaps, is the heaviness: real stone has substantial weight that may annoy some women (not me ;))!
I love the design of this necklace and the contrast between the black of the onyx and the gold leaves. Gorgeous work.
