Sterling Silver Nautical Oval Cameo/Cabochon Pendant Mountings



Description

This bright-finished sterling silver pendant mounting features a three-dimensional seaside theme and holds one 25 x 18mm oval cameo or cabochon. It has three decorative elements—a starfish and two different seashells—that serve as prongs and a row of cresting waves along the lower right edge. A slightly domed, tapered bail complements the design of the mounting and allows it to be easily strung onto cord or chain. This cabochon mounting features a flat, open base and raised edges; the open back makes it lightweight and comfortable to wear. Set your cameo or cabochon into the mounting, then burnish the prongs over the stone to secure it in place. To highlight the details, oxidize the mounting before setting your stone.

Please Note: 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.
