“Ilia” necklace is constructed by reticulated sterling silver 925. The gemstone is a natural black onyx 8mm round shaped gemstone.
Reticulation refers to a finishing technique involving the application of localised heat to the surface of the metal, which provides textured surfaces that appear very ‘natural’.
Onyx comes through the Greek ὄνυξ, meaning “claw” or “fingernail”. The colors of its bands range from black to almost every color.
Every necklace may vary a bit, since it is handmade and gemstones are natural and genuine.
