Capim Brazilian Golden Grass Necklace/Choker With Yellow Coloured Stone.
Brazilian Golden Grass Choker Style Necklace, Handmade in Sao Paulo
This highly fashionable necklace is hand made from Capim, a grass found in the northeastern states of Brazil which has the amazing quality of being a totally natural gold colour. The grass is woven by local artisans into an amazing variety of products, from jewellery to bags and many other decorative items.
This particular style is one of the very latest fashion necklaces in Brazil and is available here before it reaches many of the boutiques in Sao Paulo and Rio de Janeiro.
It is very difficult to show in photographs the beautiful rich tones of natures 'vegetable gold' but it has an incredibly warm lustre that equals that of its metallic cousin, and the intricate way it is woven together results in a truly outstanding piece of jewellery that is perfect for the beach or an evening out alike.
This choker style necklace has a beautiful pale yellow faceted coloured stone in the centre, surrounded by tiny clear gemstones
It is fastened with a clasp and small length of chain, so is adjustable but designed to fit a neck circumference of 45 cm or less.
These are not mass produced items so they do vary a little in colour, size and shape but the main pendant body is about 60mm across.
