These are seeming to pop up everywhere, and for good reason. Many jewelers can take a diamond necklace and make it any length to form a choker. They can also be incorporated into any type of style, from the subtle to the extreme.
The technique of wire wrapping is very versatile. However, for every style, the basic wire wrap instructions include twisting the wrapping wire, twinning a bundle of wire (as per your design), adjusting the wrap to align with the stone, shaping the wrap, and cutting the wire properly. Follow the wire wrap instructions carefully to secure the stone with the wire. Otherwise, there are chances that the stone may fall on one side or it is loosely mounted.
While Celtic jewelry traditionally is made in white or yellow gold, there are also other styles available. The best Celtic jewelry has traditionally been handcrafted by a professional; however, you may find that some so-called Celtic jewelry is not actually handmade. To ensure that you are getting a piece of handmade Celtic jewelry, you should properly research the jewelry. Always feel free to ask questions about how the jewelry was made, who the artisan was and so forth. You would be wise to visit several jewelers selling the styles you are interested in.
Vermeil, pronounced 'ver may', is a type of jewelry, wherein silver is plated with gold. It contains gold plating over 925 sterling silver. The number 925 indicates that one piece contains 925 on thousand parts of silver. In terms of percentage, it can be expressed as 92.5%. Gold coating over sterling silver gives this jewelry a yellowish color. Hence, it is sometimes referred to as yellow gold. The age-old process of gilding gold over silver at high temperatures for manufacturing this jewelry was discontinued mainly because mercury used in the process caused blindness in the craftsmen. Hence, electrolysis, which is a much safer process, is now used to produce this jewelry.
