Sterling Silver Twist Pearl Pendant Mounting


This sterling silver floating pendant mounting features an open twist teardrop design with a pearl peg mounting that sits inside the bottom of the teardrop. The twist peg holds one half-drilled pearl or gemstone bead (8.5mm, max.). A floating pendant is designed so that the chain or cord threads through the pendant itself so that no distinct bail feature is needed; the pendant slides freely, appearing to 'float' along the strand. Use jeweler’s epoxy to secure the bead or pearl on the peg; the twisted peg increases the surface area for the epoxy and provide a more secure hold.

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.
