NYC II® 2.10ctw Italian Vesuvianite & White Zircon Pendant w/ 18" Rope Chain

An elegant accessory with a bit of history? We like the sound of that! In fact, we love it so much that we can't wait to share this pear shaped pendant with you. One pear shaped Italian vesuvianite dazzles in the center of the pendant. Scrollwork accents surround the stone while twinkling white zircons border the edge. Just thread the 18" rope chain through the single bail for a complete look.

Now for the history part! Italian vesuvianite comes from the area near Mount Vesuvius on the Gulf of Naples in Italy. Beautiful, right? Well, Mount Vesuvius is known for its volcanic eruption in AD 79 that buried the Roman city of Pompeii. So when your friends ask about this exquisite pendant, you can tell them about Italian vesuvianite and the story of Mount Vesuvius!

Vermeil Plating:
Pronounced "vermay," vermeil is an electroplating process in which 14K gold or higher is coated over sterling silver. Officially designated by the jewelry industry, items may only be sold as vermeil if they have a minimum thickness of 100 millionths of an inch (2.5 microns) of gold over the silver. Regular gold plating is less than 2.5 microns.

The "vermeil" technique of plating sterling silver with gold originated in France in the 1750s. It differs from "gold filled" or "gold plated" in terms of the thickness or thinness of the microns over sterling silver. "Gold filled" pieces have a much thicker layer, between 15 and 45 microns, which is mechanically bonded to the base metal with heat and pressure. Vermeil is a more expensive version of "gold plated". It does not wear off as quickly as gold plating does. However, over time, vermeil wears off and therefore will require re-plating.

Gold/Platinum Embraced Silver or Bronze:
Our platinum and gold embraced collections feature layers of platinum or gold over sterling silver or bronze for a lustrous, radiant finish everywhere you look and touch.

To care for your plated jewelry items:

  • Remove jewelry before bathing, swimming, washing hands, putting on make-up, lotions, perfumes, and/or working with household chemicals, cleaners, or acidic liquids.
  • Do not clean plated jewelry in an ultrasonic cleaner or in silver cleaning solutions, as it could completely remove the plating finish from your item.
  • Ensure your jewelry item is thoroughly dry before storing. Moisture in an enclosed space can increase tarnishing.
  • Store your plated jewelry in a jewelry box lined with felt or anti-tarnish material. Items should not be stacked as this may cause damage to the plating surface.
  • Do not use excessive pressure when cleaning with a polishing cloth or soft brush, as this may cause damage to the plating.
  • Over time your plated items will need to be re-plated. Contact your local jeweler for information on plating services.
