Rosarita is an exceptional stone made valuable not only because it's a slag-like glass that's a byproduct of gold refining--as I understand it, it derives its unique deep red from the inclusion of gold--but it's also a beast to cut and shape properly. My supplier said there's nearly 90% waste for specialty cuts like these.
This listing is for one of three rosarita glass heart necklaces. Vibrant cathedral-glass-red heart set in a fine silver bezel with paisley-etched sterling backplate. Hand-pounded emblem charm gilded with 24k gold keum bo detailing. All pendants approx. 1.75" hanging length.
Necklace 1: sterling silver coin chain, 18".
Necklace 2: sterling silver linked curb chain, bar toggle clasp, choker style length 15.5".
Necklace 3: sterling silver linked curb chain, handmade brass byzantine chain accent, 17".
