K + 79:2 - Fool's Gold - Sold
2nd necklace of the K + 79 collection. Pyrite is also commonly known as fool's gold. Back in the gold mining days, pyrite with its silverish tone & gold flecks or brassy tone (depending on which spectrum of the gemstone you were getting), was easily mistaken for gold, therefore it's name. I've wirewrapped the pyrite gumdrop with 14k gold headpin, and strung it on a black electroplated chain. Chain measures 25", while pyrite pendant measures a tiny 5mm across, and finished with 14k gold plated spring clasp. See the complete necklace & close-up on 14k lobster clasp.
