Leland Blue and Sterling Silver Necklace - "Dignity"

Leland Blue and Sterling Silver Necklace - "Dignity"

$125.00Price

This lovely necklace is made from sterling silver and features a beautiful oval Leland blue stone.  The stone has the much sought-after color of almost turquoise Leland blue, with beatiful inclusions of cream color.  I think that this is lovely.  

 

The story of the Leland Blue Stone is not exactly as alluring as finding one on the beaches in northern Michigan. The Leland Blue Stone is actually slag – a waste product from the smelting process used in the late 1800s by the Leland Lake Superior Iron Company. Leland Blue stones have a very wide range of colors and shapes, the name being a bit misleading. There’s a huge variation in stones, from shades of green, purple, and gray to the more traditional blue stones that are often pitted from air bubbles… however, these imperfections are what can add beauty to the stones – including range in color and overall texture. 

 

The pendant is just a touch longer than 1 1/2" and is 3/4" wide at it's widest point in the center.  The sterling silver has been given a dark patina and a matte finish, adding to the charm.  Rustic and refined.  

 

The necklace is 18" in length, and should you prefer a different length, please just leave a message in the comments at check out - I can offer several lengths using this very chain, which has been given the same matte and dark patina as the pendant itself.  I think that gives a cohesive and one of a kind look.  

 

This would feel at home with jeans and a t-shirt as well as a little black dress. Truly a classic piece to show your style.   This piece is one-of-a-kind, and you will receive the exact necklace pictured.

 

This necklace would pair beautifully well with my Leland Blue "classic stone bracelets" and my Leland Blue earrings ~ all classic, rustic and refined.  They'll show off your inner artsy!  

 

All of my jewelry is made, one at a time, in my little northern Michigan studio using timeless methods of hand crafting with sterling and stone.   Your new piece comes packaged in a handmade cloth pouch, suitable for gifting. I hope you truly love your new jewelry!!

  • Care Instructions

    Caring for your new jewelry is easy.  The best way to care for it, is to wear it!!  Jewelry that is worn tarnishes more slowly, so wear and enjoy.

    Should you notice a bit of tarnish, you may use a Sunshine Cloth or any other dry polish cloths.  Please avoid any pastes or liquids when polishing.  If you have a piece with stones, please note that anything liquid or paste may harm the stones or discolor them.  

    If trying to sanitize, sterling silver jewelry may be wiped gently with alcohol.  Avoid rubbing alcohol on the stones - I can't guarantee the results.  Please also avoid using bleach on sterling silver, as it will turn black.  If it does, a polish with a Sunshine cloth will have it good as new!!
