Shasta Necklace | Gold + Moonstone by Zaleska Jewelry
Mount Shasta, a dormant volcano in Northern California, is an energetic vortex that draws thousands of visitors every year. The myths, happenings, and legends surrounding this magical mountain are endless, but my favourites include the high reporting rate of alien craft sightings and the rumoured Lemurian city within its’ peak. Mount Shasta joins the likes of the Great Pyramids and Stonehenge as one of the most famous mysterious places in the world.
Moonstone reminds us that it is time to get down with our divine selves. It invites us to explore the places in our bodies that need both passion and healing. This gemstone is also an ideal companion for an inward spiritual journey and it fires up our feminine side. Be prepared for an influx of intuition.
Gold vermeil pendant.
Gold-filled chain - 18" length
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.
Gold-filled jewelry is made by pressure bonding multiple layers of solid 14k gold over a core of high quality jeweller’s brass, resulting in a long-lasting, gold-coloured product. Contrary to popular belief, the gold in gold-filled jewelry is not mixed or blended with the base metal. As a result, those with brass allergies can typically wear gold-filled jewelry without issue. In theory, gold-filled items can retain their gold colour for decades. In practice, actual longevity will depend on how you care for your jewelry, the climate you live in and your body chemistry. We recommend following the same guidelines as you would for delicate jewelry - avoid contact with chemicals or soaps, and hand polish gently when required.
