Dimension: 5/8'' x 1'' (Includes 16" x 1mm 14k gold-filled chain)
14k bi-metal, sterling silver, and colorful niobium create this beautiful pendant. The three sheets are collectively suspended, allowing some movement. The outside pieces have a slight puff to them, creating depth between the layers. This pendant is 5/8” x 1” and comes on a 1mm 14k gold-filled chain. This very unique piece is a favorite!
This is a space age metal that has many unusual properties. One remarkable trait is that it anodizes to create beautiful iridescent colors. Once the niobium has been anodized, the color remains very stable. As you can see to some extent in the photos, the color on most of my niobium pieces is a bluish purple. The iridescence allows the color to shift slightly as it moves around. Also, it has a unique way of picking up the colors around it. For example, if you wear it with a coral colored shirt, it amazingly seams to pick up some coral colors within the piece.
Niobium is hypoallergenic.
