Custom made gorgeous white Keshi Pearl and Lapis Lazuli (12MM) Necklace with goldtone flutters for accents. These iridescent pearls flash yellow and pink from their gentle folds. They are beautiful complements to the blue lapis lazuli beads. Lapis Lazuli has been known since ancient Egypt where it was mined around 4000 B.C. Some of those mines are still in operation today. It was valued not only for its beautiful deep blue color but also for the valuable ultramarine dye that comes from it. It symbolizes wisdom and truth. Today the major producer of Lapis Lazuli is Afghanistan, but Russia and Chile also produce substantial quantities. The golden flecks often seen in Lapis Lazuli are pyrite. This unique necklace is comfortable 26 inches which fits outside a collar as well as with a jewel neckline. It is secured with a gold diamond studded lobster claw clasp.
