The 925 silver pendant is set with nine multi-coloured gems in the shape of a Fleur de Lys. It is held by a 24" long necklace of solar quartz slab nugget beads, interspersed by pearls. As the solar quartz has a druzy edge, I have placed blue glass beads and pearls around the back of the neck for comfort.
