Silver Spiral Necklaces
(formerly "Silver 7th Heaven Necklaces" before I fell in love with the five spiral version, too :-)

I so loved the 14K and 18K gold 7th Heaven necklaces that when I saw a collection of vintage Thai silver spirals, I had to have them.  I acquired enough pieces to create a few necklaces, and some earrings, too.  If you like the style, but have another gemstone in mind, please email me for a quote, because I can accept special orders for this design.
 


Green Garnet 5-Spiral Thai Silver Necklace - SOLD
Green Garnet 5-Spiral Thai Silver Necklace - SOLD
Wow. I scarcely know where to start my love letter to this necklace. We'll start with the spirals. These were purchased in Chiang Mai, Thailand about thirty years ago, making them truly vintage. The beauty of silver is that it's so forgiving, and in little time, I had their spiral faces gleaming once more. It is a surprise to many (I know it was for me) to learn that garnet also occurs in shades of green. This is the grossularite variety, and the orange-y stones have their own name, hessonite. This is a particularly lovely mix of greens that will have you dreaming of fern gardens, or something equally luscious and verdant. There are 51 carats of these faceted natural wonders, including the dark green garnet charm next to the toggle clasp. There are silver bead accents throughout to add a touch more sparkle. 17.25" long. (N330, 11/21) $250





Chrysoprase Thai Silver 7th Heaven Necklace
Chrysoprase Thai Silver 7th Heaven Necklace
This variety of chrysoprase recently appeared on the market, and I'm really taken by it's pretty turquoise color. These 42 carats of faceted gems have a greater opacity than typical chrysoprase, and I also believe that they will be more durable than turquoise. The vintage Thai silver spirals are wonderful. There is a faceted quartz charm next to the sterling toggle clasp, and argentium sterling accent beads used throughout. Argentium is a more tarnish resistant sterling silver that is 93.5 percent pure silver. Matching spiral earrings are available below and on page 1 of the Earrings section. 18.5" long. (#N306) $250
Necklace only  $250

Necklace AND matching earrings  $319






Turquoise & Thai Silver Spiral "Seventh Heaven" Necklace - SPECIAL ORDER
Turquoise & Thai Silver Spiral "Seventh Heaven" Necklace - SPECIAL ORDER
A piece Cleopatra herself would have admired, I'm sure. Vintage Thai silver spirals and 36 carats of smooth-cut turquoise create just a bit of drama. The turquoise beads are arranged in groups of seven to echo the seven spirals. Argentium sterling silver beads are used between the turquoise beads as they resist tarnishing -- all the better to keep you dazzling, m'dear. ;-) There is a faceted smokey quartz and turquoise charm by the spiral hook clasp. Matching spiral earrings are available below and on page 1 of the Earrings section. 18.25" long. Although this exact necklace has sold, a special order may be possible. (#N297, 11/14) $225
Necklace only  $225

Necklace AND matching earrings  $294







Thai Silver Amethyst 7th Heaven Necklace - SPECIAL ORDER
Thai Silver Amethyst 7th Heaven Necklace - SPECIAL ORDER
The 46 carats of faceted amethysts in this necklace are exceptionally fine. Beautiful intense color and splendid clarity. (My monitor is showing these amethysts as more blue than they actually are. In reality, they are that perfect purple amethyst shade.) Whenever I can, I use math when designing. This necklace is a study in sevens. Seven spirals, seven stones between each spiral, and groups of seven beyond the spirals. The clasp is hand-wrought in sterling wire. This same necklace is also posted in the More Necklaces pages. Matching earrings are available below, and and on page 1 of the Earrings section. Necklace is just shy of 18" long. (#N107, 2/12) $325
 Necklace only  $325

Necklace AND matching earrings  $390



 
 
 
Garnet Silver 7th Heaven Necklace - SPECIAL ORDER
Garnet Silver 7th Heaven Necklace - SPECIAL ORDER
I've been getting requests for a silver version of the 7th Heaven necklaces, so I'm really pleased to be able to offer this in beautiful Thai silver. This one is a study in sevens. Seven spirals, seven stones between each spiral, and seven times seven for 49 stones flanking the spirals on each side. The garnets are very clear and gem-y. They look delicious - all 81 carats of them! I also have a number of these garnet strands, so if the 17' finished length is too short, I can make a longer version. The clasp is hand-wrought sterling wire. (#N088, 12/22) $250
