The Queen’s necklace has weight. This is due to the solid silver stick beads that space the rare bicolor tourmalines perfectly. Incidentally, these stick beads are a finer alloy than sterling silver because they have a higher pure silver content at 97%. There are 19 hand picked, wonderfully facetted watermelon tourmalines of amazing color and clarity! The shapes alternate between long facetted teardrops, squatty teardrops, and a couple of marquis and true Victorian briolette cuts. There are solid 22k gold flower beads to accent each tourmaline and I LOVE the stark contrast between the white silver and the 22k gold. It is 17.5 inches in length on an extremely flexible wire and has a 14k gold lobster claw clasp.
