Never thought I'd fall in love with "Y"-shaped lariat necklaces until I made it and tried it on myself. It was simply love at first sight - classy, understated elegance. Suitable for bridal wear.
The toggle ring is hammered to give an interesting texture - reflects nicely at different angles. I've made the lariat adjustable through that toggle. In the picture, I'm wearing it at 17" with a 3" drop. You can wear it any other way; choker lariat, or lower. Total length is 20".
The pearls are natural freshwater pearls, and I've used an organically shaped baroque pearl as the main pendant to contrast the 3 smaller accent pearls. Let me know at checkout if you'd like this without the accent pearls, I can make it your way. :)

1/20 14K Gold-Filled
Known as the "next best thing to solid gold", 1/20 14K gold-filled is superior to gold-plated and gold vermeil in quality and price. There is at least 5% of 14K gold by weight (or 1/20) permanently bonded to the base metal.
Not all gold-filled are created equal: for example most 18K Gold-filled, though higher in Karats, has a much thinner layer of softer gold (< 3%), making it more vulnerable to wear. This makes it - ironically - cheaper than high quality 14K Gold-filled.
High quality 1/20 14K gold-filled is fade-resistant and tarnish-resistant, lasting 10-30 years even with daily wear. This makes it very sustainable. It is safe for sensitive skin, and safe to keep on while you exercise, shower and sleep. Read about it here
