This sterling silver pendant mounting offers an open, U-shaped geometric shape and includes a pearl peg set inside the "U" at the base of the design. The peg accommodates one half-drilled pearl or gem ball up to 8mm dia. Use jeweler’s epoxy to secure the pearl on the peg. Suspend the pendant on two lengths of chain to create a festoon design, or thread a single length of chain or cord through both fixed bails. This pendant has a hollow back that makes it a lightweight and comfortable to wear.
• After setting your stone(s) in this mounting, finish or polish as necessary to complete your pendant.
• 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.
