This necklace is more of a contemporary style comprising smooth tubes of hematite with large shiny white jade (probably agate rather than jade) round beads (around 20mm in diameter) each framed with shiny hematite flat rondelles.
The necklace fastens with a Karen Hill Tribe* hammered silver toggle clasp and is 18" (464mm) long.
You could wear this necklace to the office or equally when going out to dinner or any other social occasion.
Because of the design it has a stiffer feel but is very comfortable to wear and is the sort of necklace you can put on and forget about (until someone admires it that is!).
*Karen Hill Tribe silver is made by the Karen Hill Tribe silversmiths in Thailand. I buy it directly through a fair trade co-operative scheme.
