Hammered Blackened Silver Necklace, Tree of Life is a beautiful representation of the traditional symbol, this time in hammered silver metal (representing the leaves) and a lovely textured trunk. Surrounding the tree is a rim of highly polished silver, while the tree itself is partially matte and is blackened in this edition. The blackening is a novelty finish that we apply, and it eventually will wear off to an antiqued look. If you wish to have the pendant re-blackened at that point that service is available for a nominal fee. The pendant and bail measures approximately 1.3 inches in height. This piece comes on an 18" sterling box chain with a 2 inch extender. This design is handmade and hand textured, and would look gorgeous also customized with birthstones or touches of gold. Pendant and chain weigh 7.3 grams together. All are solid sterling!
