The necklace is 22 beautiful inches long, the pendant is approximately 1 1/2 inches in diameter and the pendant drop is approximately 2 inches.
As with many of our pendant necklaces, we designed this piece with an eye to versatility.

This can go from business meetings to date night to a little league game, and you will always feel elegant, special, and confident.
For the historians among you: Lapis Lazuli was highly prized by the Babylonians and Egyptians. King Tutankhamen’s tomb was filled with jewelry and other treasures covered with the deep blue precious gemstone.
It was also used to make ultramarine blue during the Renaissance. The next time you see a painting by Michelangelo, da Vinci, Botticelli, or Rafael, look at the deep incredibly gorgeous ultramarine blue in the robes and sky. That’s ground lapis, mixed with oils and other substances to make the paint.
For those of you into the metaphysical: Lapis Lazuli – truthfullness, openness, creativity, inner power, enhancing love and fidelity in marriage, and is a royal gemstone.
Turquoise is a sacred stone to many Native Americans.
Lapis is September's birthstone and Turquoise is December's.
FREE GIFT WRAP. Each piece of jewelry is wrapped in tissue paper and enclosed in an organza bag.
