|Pyrite Nugget Bead Necklace [NQ] |
Stunning necklace in a contemporary design, incorporating nuggets of pyrite. These are complemented by vermeil beads which enhance the pyrite's natural golden metallic sheen.
Pyrite is also known as Fool's Gold because of its similarity to the precious metal gold. It has been used for centuries in jewellery and amulets and the Incas were known to use polished pyrite as mirrors.

- The trigger clasp, beads and chain are vermeil, which is sterling silver with a layer of fine gold usually 2.5 microns thick, bonded by electrolysis.
- Designed and handmade in-house with real pyrite, so each necklace will have its own unique features.
