This sterling silver pendant features a 22 x 8mm oval bezel mounting with a decorative beaded-edge design and a rope-edged tapered bail. The pendant mounting is oxidized to highlight the design details. Set with a cabochon or flat-back stone using traditional bezel-setting techniques or use jeweler’s epoxy to secure the stone.
• IMPORTANT: Sterling silver is an alloy containing metals that react with chemicals found in air and produce tarnish; high moisture levels, exposure to sunlight and contaminants such as salt water increase this reaction. Take steps to protect your sterling findings by keeping them in airtight packages, use tarnish-resistant products (such as tarnish tabs or strips) that absorb harmful chemicals, and store sterling findings in a cool, dry place. Most tarnish is easily removed by polishing with a mild abrasive or soaking in an anti-tarnish solution.
