Pietersite Pendant (#P23-108)
Pietersite cab finely wrapped in 14/20 gold filled wire.
The pendant measures 2 1/8" long.
A little about Pietersite: African Pietersite is the most valued due to its wide range of colors. Colors include various blues, golds and reds that may appear together or alone. Blue is the rarest color, followed by red.
All fibrous color variations will have a superb and striking chatoyancy, the bright and subtly changing shimmer of color that moves along the surface of a gemstone as it is viewed from varying angles.
A little about the wire used: Gold-filled wire consists of a layer of karat gold bonded to a base metal using heat and pressure. 14/20 GF is the designation for 14 Karat Gold-Filled. The 14 refers to the karat of the layer of precious metal bonded to the base metal. The 1/20th indicates the ratio of karat gold to base metal by weight (5%). Gold-Filled wire is significantly advantageous from a cost stand point. It allows you to provide the look and durability of solid karat products at a fraction of the cost.
Gold-Filled items will have the same appearance and can last years. It should not be compared to gold-plated materials. Plated products have a fraction of the layer of gold and do not wear nearly as well.
