Black onyx rounds with white layers punctuate this strand necklace with dramatic appeal. In between are small hand-knotted white mother of pearl rice beads. The result is a timeless combination of black and white with an innovative and entirely contemporary design. Black onyx has been associated with regeneration and new beginnings. Mother-of-pearl refers to the nacre that coats the inside layer of the mollusk shell which is used to form pearls--hence, it's the mother of the pearl. Mother-of-pearl shell is commonly believed to attract prosperity and is often used in mystical work and lore to heighten intuition, psychic sensitivity and imagination.
This long necklace (43 inches!) can be worn single or double for different effects. The necklace closes with a large hook and loop closure.
