Feel empowered and beautiful wearing our exquisite Zasha Gemstone Collar, meticulously crafted with 14K gold-filled and stunning Amethyst gemstones. The hand-sculpted wire details, reminiscent of delicate flower petals, make this piece truly one of a kind. With a touch of elegance and sophistication, this statement collar will turn heads. 

ZASHA GEMSTONE NECKLACE w/ ARTISAN LINKS

We’re gonna go all out with this beauty. Big juicy gemstones will be wrapped and embellished, but the best part will be creating artisan links in floral shapes: petals, lotus flowers, rosebuds, leaves, and more. And all of these links can be used in future designs, giving you a truly high-end design!

We'll use faux wire.

Your design will differ from the photo because you get to choose from your gemstones, freshwater pearls, and other goodies. {Depending on availability}
