A Royal Treat

I haven't seen Lapis Lazuli around a lot lately, so when I came across it on a gem buying trip recently, I jumped. These are big, impressive pieces, faceted and flecked with golden pyrite. For this piece I wove them into a fan shape and linked it all into gold vermeil chain. Lapis has been worn for centuries, prized by ancient civilizations and worn by royalty. So, get your inner Nefertiti on and show off!
