Collection, Project, and Sample by Kate Richbourg

Just like the mythical city of El Dorado, this necklace looks as though it has been dipped in gold dust. This gorgeous palette of gold-to-blue-to-green tone pearls are ready to shimmer and shine in this opera-length necklace that Kate designed to highlight the beauty of these precious pearls. To add to the charm of this piece Kate found the perfect accent pieces...a faceted light colorado topaz crystal rondelle and a vintage brass button handmade in Burma that she uses for the clasp. While the mix itself was a limited-edition Curated Collection, we do have a recipe available for a similar colorway, Gold Coast.
