Leya necklace gold
The Story behind
With its design based on the simplified forms found in succulent plants, Leya necklace is statement but without having to shout too loud. Leya comes to life best when it's worn with a monochrome outfit, plainer colours help to highlight the continuity of the oval shape as it falls around the neck, over the shoulders and slightly onto the chest.
A gold plated silver squared wire makes a pronounced curve to be followed by a small delicate gold plated silver chain. Another gold plated silver squared wire interrupts the perfect curve to capture all the attention.
Material: Gold plated 925 Sterling Silver
Measures: 11.5cm high x 10.5cm wide. Chain: 64cm length
