Solo Necklace - Matte Black Onyx
Solid 9 Karat Yellow Gold and Matte Onyx 'Solo' Necklace
This edgy minimalist necklace combines a velvety matte black onyx sphere with a solid 9 karat yellow gold chain. The 8mm round sphere of natural onyx floats freely on the fine gleaming filed curb chain, adding a subtle kinetic and tactile element to this fine necklace. A carefree piece to wear year-round.
Fun fact: Onyx is the perfect gift for people born under the zodiac sign Leo (23 June - 22 July).
Each sphere is hand-selected for colour and quality in our Dublin studio and paired with a quality German-made curb chain in solid 9-karat yellow gold. We make it in a standard length of 40cm (16 inches), but you can order it in a 45cm (18 inch) or 50cm (20 inch) length if you prefer.
Gemmology: Ever since Roman times, the black color of onyx is usually enhanced. More than 2000 years ago, Roman historian Pliny described a traditional technique for darkening onyx that is still in use today: the onyx is soaked in sugar water, then placed in strong acid. After boiling for two hours, the acid eats away the sugar and water, leaving pure black carbon!
Lightweight and comfortable to wear this super versatile Onyx necklace is lovely on its own, but works equally well paired with a second necklace for a curated neck-stack. Feminine and elegant this velvety onyx will easily go from casual daywear to elegant evening wear. It will fit perfectly with any outfit in your wardrobe.
Metaphysical properties: Onyx is known as a stone of strength - It is said to strengthen confidence and can help you master your destiny. It provides support in difficult times and centers your energy in times of mental or physical stress. It also offers the gift of wise decisions.
Wear this necklace on its own, layer it up with our other necklaces, or pair it with our matching earrings and bracelet.
This quietly bold necklace is wonderful as a gift for someone you love, or for yourself.
