Victorian Turquoise Matrix Swag Necklace


A swag necklace that's both ultra-streamlined and full of decorative touches. You have to get up close to see the gold buckle details which connect all the elements. Fragments of non-turquoise natural material - bits of the host rock - appear as dark veins throughout the gemstones. This earthy, spiderwebby pattern is called "matrix" and is considered an imperfection in most cases. Our necklace, however, was obviously designed to showcase the beauty of the phenomenon.
