The Ariadne Necklace is inspired by Minoan mythology. Ariadne’s string is a fine curb chain ushered through the double bail of the geometric pendant. The Minoan princess used this string to guide her beloved through the labyrinthine catacombs below the palace of Knossos. A journey of redemption illuminated by baguette cut peridot, providing a metaphoric light at the end of the tunnel. The Ariadne Necklace offers hope, guiding us through the fathomless corridors of our inner labyrinth. Peridot has been used in jewelry by the ancient Egyptians, Greeks, and Romans who revered this gemstone as a symbol of the Sun. Peridot radiates feelings of inner warmth, well-being, and positivity.

About this Metal

Pronounced "vehr-may" a thick layer of gold plating is deposited onto a solid sterling silver base. To be legally called "vermeil," the gold layer needs to be at least 2.5 microns thick. This is a great option for people with sensitive skin. It is not as strong as Gold Filled but still a great option. Suggested Wear: to prolong the luster and plating of your Vermeil jewelry be careful of hard water exposure, chemicals in shampoos, ocean salt water, chlorine in pools, heavy metals from sweat. Because Vermeil is plated we do suggest occasional wear and to store in a dry area.
