The Petra Necklace | Gold Vermeil

The Petra Necklace | Gold Vermeil

160.00

The Petra Necklace is inspired by the Treasury, a monumental temple-like facade carved out of sandstone cliffs in the Jordanian desert. Statues of mythological figures adorn the exterior, which soars over 100 feet into the air. Centuries-old bullet holes from hopeful treasure hunters riddle this carved ancient wonder.

Petra was once a vast trading centre of frankincense and myrrh, and only 15% of this UNESCO site has been explored by archaeologists.  The treasury’s original function is still unclear.

Amethyst helps purify the aura by cleansing negative energy and attachments. It strengthens the imagination and promotes higher states of consciousness. Wearing amethyst cultivates a balanced and protected state for both the inner and outer energetic body.

Gold vermeil is an overlay of gold over a base of sterling silver and requires special care. To extend the life of your gold vermeil jewelry, remove when washing hands, showering, applying lotions or perfumes, using harsh cleansers, or working out. Always store your jewelry in a dry place, preferably in individual air-tight bags. Do not use chemical jewelry cleansers or polishing cloths on gold vermeil jewelry.

Gold vermeil jewelry will inevitably fade to a warm silver or a light 10K gold colour. This is the nature of plated jewelry. The rate of wear depends on care, climate and individual body chemistry, and may vary greatly on a case by case basis. As rings are worn on the hand, and are exposed to more frequent rubbing, they will often age more quickly than necklaces or earrings. We do not offer re-plating of our gold vermeil designs and all sales of gold vermeil jewelry are final.
