Blue and Gold Necklace with Spike Pendant


"Icicle Shine" Necklace

This necklace, one of the "Sunset" designs in the STARSNOW Collection, is inspired by the warm reflections of the sun's rays from an icicle's smooth surface. Like the other "Sunset" designs, it recalls the combination of cool, blue tones with warm, golden ones in a wintry sunset sky.

"Icicle Shine" was designed to be a simple piece and therefore one you can wear with lots of different outfits and even layer with other necklaces. But it's not at all simplistic. The 24Kt-gold-plated spike is flanked by two pale-gold Czech-glass rondelles whose facets add a little sparkle to the pendant, and the diamond-shaped links of the gold-plated chain echo the spike's point. The chain and the swivel lobster-claw clasp have a satin finish, which contrasts beautifully with the high shine of the spike and mimics the variety of textures that ice displays at the end of the day when it's been through cycles of freezing, melting, and partly refreezing. And finally, the blue Czech-glass accent beads, which repeat the shape of the smaller pale-gold rondelles, offer a flash of intense color to complement the toughness of the spike pendant and to contrast with the predominantly golden tones.

This necklace would be really striking with clothes in black or white (or both!) with simple, strong lines. But it would also be stunning with something a little sweeter, like a blush-colored pleated midi skirt and a T-shirt or a cozy sweater.
