Mongolian-style Filigree Necklace
(Based on 1 review)
Category: Clothing/Jewelry/Necklaces

Mongolian filigree is a laborious, delicate jeweler’s art whose lineage includes Fabergé eggs and the trousseaux of Qing dynasty empresses. Few artisans in China remain who can achieve this level of precise detail, but by adapting these time-honored techniques for modern tastes, craftspeople are able to continue making a living through this ancient art. Here, colorful faceted amethyst and peridot alternate within links of high-gloss enamel and intricate 24-karat-gold-vermeil filigree to create an accent fit for a queen.

Himalayan Earth & Sky Necklace
Himalayan Earth & Sky Necklace
(Based on 4 reviews)
Category: Clothing/Jewelry/Necklaces
In Tibet, turquoise (called gyu) and coral are two of the most highly valued materials. Turquoise has been used as currency, and coral is a precious trade object in this landlocked mountainous country. Nomadic people of the region frequently wear many pieces of turquoise and coral jewelry at once, as spiritual protection and as a way to keep their wealth at hand. By pairing faux versions of these stones with carnelian and handmade nickel and silver-plated beads, jewelers living on the Tibetan/Indian border re-create this traditional Himalayan design.
