Gold Tube Bead Necklace
These 24K gold overlay necklaces are simple enough for everyday wear. They are produced in Istanbul and their design draws inspiration from prehistoric civilizations.
Each necklace is unique and may be accented with turquoise, lapis, coral, pearl, and/or quartz. We carry 17" and 36" lengths.
Gold overlay jewelry has a thicker gold coat than plated pieces and will hold up better over time. The overlay technique has been around for thousands of years and is used all over the world. It is the process of using heat and pressure to forge a new alloy with base metals. In these necklaces, the base metal is sterling silver.
Because nickel is not used in the overlay, rings and other jewelry with gold overlay do not irritate the skin like some gold plated jewelry items do.
