Ivory, red, brown and gray all swirl together to create this beautiful dolomite pendant that pairs beautifully with a bronze background to create a showstopper that is sure to make a bold statement. This metal in this pendant was shaped and textured with a handmade design using bronze metal clay and the dolomite it features has been prong-set using bronze wire. A thick pendant bail holds the pendant securely to a curb chain that is about 22 inches long and is finished with a lobster clasp. Dolomite was discovered in 1791 by the French geologist Déodat Gratet de Dolomieu and is used to promote the emotional balance needed for calmness. It alleviates negativity and enhances self-realization. Bronze is like most metals and will tarnish over time. I include anti-tarnish tabs and my recommendation is to keep your piece sealed whenever it's not worn. Also, I choose not to apply a sealant to the metal so the bronze will darken naturally over time. It's a wonderful effect that actually brings a little more warmth to the pendant. A gift box is included for ease of giving and safe shipping.
