A stunning Cordierite Natural Iolite “Water Sapphire” bar necklace made entirely in the UK with ethically sourced Iolite chips from India.
Set upon a solid 2 inch Eco Silver bar and attached to a 16″ 925 sterling silver rope chain to sit femininely just below the collarbone. This dainty necklace is standout piece on it’s own, or can be layered with stacked necklaces to create a colourful cascade.
Coming from mines in India, these stones are carefully selected in size and clarity to give a contrasting colour effect on the bar of the necklace ranging from light violets to blues. These stunning stones are uniquely pleochroic, giving them an optical effect that shows different colours when viewed from different angles. They’re also thought to have been used by the Vikings according to legends to pinpoint the location of the sun on overcast days for navigation. Iolite itself comes from the Greek word ion, which means violet.
The Eco Silver bar is made from recycled sterling silver, a great new eco friendly alternative to traditional bullion wire. With the same purity and a fully traceable and audited supply chain, it’s environmentally friendly and a new alternative for sustainable making. This also forms the base of all most of our jewellery findings as we work off a zero waste policy.
The 925 sterling silver rope chain is manufactured in the UK from recycled Sterling Silver and is measured and cut to size to make each necklace extra special. We also attach a 2″ recycled sterling silver trace chain extender for an adjustable fit. If you’d like longer or shorter lengths you can contact us for a custom order.
