This strand of graduated green tourmaline beads is so pretty and unusual! The tourmaline gems graduate in size from 5.5 to 8.5mm in diameter and have been faceted as rondels that sparkle and catch the light, showing off their beautiful leaf-green color. They have been hand strung on silk thread and arranged with a combination of polished 18k yellow gold box-shaped beads and textured 18k yellow gold lentil-shaped spacers that allow the necklace to transition easily between casual and dressy attire. The color of the tourmaline beads evokes a feeling of nature and can be worn with a variety of colors in your wardrobe! A 18k yellow gold hook clasp and extender chain allows the necklace to be adjusted between 22 and 25 inches in length! Such a fun and truly beautiful necklace!
