The Daphne Gold Paperclip Chain Necklace with Pearls and Barnacle Pendant is a handmade, vintage-inspired piece made with sustainable materials. The necklace features a pearl-studded carabiner closure that can be unscrewed to create different looks, such as a double necklace, a Y style necklace, or a wrap bracelet. You can also link two necklaces together for a unique triple chain look. The necklace also comes with a large white keshi pearl with gold barnacles, which can be attached to the carabiner lock or removed for a plain necklace. The materials used in this piece include 14k Gold Vermeil (recycled sterling silver heavily dipped in recycled 14 Carat gold) and vintage pearls sourced from pre-loved jewelry. The dimensions of the chain are 40 cm, the carabiner lock measures 2 cm x 1 cm, the Keshi pearl is approximately 2.4 cm long, and the pearls around the carabiner measure approximately 1 mm x 1 mm. Each product is handmade, so there may be slight natural variations in the length or tone of the pieces.
It is a durable metal for the base of jewelry, which perfectly holds its shape indefinitely. In addition, it is a precious metal that can be easily melted down into other products. Silver is hypoallergenic, does not change its color and does not stain the skin.
58.3% pure gold in alloy. Sufficiently durable material with medium color intensity. The most widely used alloy in jewelry.
Sterling silver plated with gold is much denser than conventional gold-plating. It will last for several years and then can be covered with gold again.
