Longevity- 24k Gold and Sterling Silver Ginkgo Leaf Statement Pendant with Dendritic Agate
Ginkgo trees can live over a thousand years- or even longer. These living fossils have also remained relatively unchanged for 200+ million years. They are the perfect symbol of endurance, strength and longevity. The dendritic agate forms branches and roots bringing the feeling of grounding while growing outwards to new directions.
Every element of this pendant was created by hand and not cast. The ginkgo leaves began as original drawings on sterling silver sheet metal that were then carefully cut out with a hand held jewelers saw. The frame was then created entirely from sheet metal and wire. The artisan cut dendritic agate is set to float above the ginkgo leaves. Each leaf was adorned with 24k gold using an ancient process called Keum Boo. The patina that was applied gives each one different tones in the gold. The back features another ginkgo leaf and a rich texture.
The Longevity pendant measures 2" x 1 1/2"
Finished to a high shine polish.
The pendant comes on an 18" sterling silver chain with lobster claw style clasp. If you would like to purchase a longer chain please leave a note at checkout.
