The backplate is embellished with spiral accents in copper and sterling silver crown like pices at the bottom of the stone. The pendant has been oxidized to highlight and to contrast the beautiful color on the stone. A layer of Renaissance Jewelers wax is applied to preserve the patina.The backplate is not oxidized and was polished to a matte -brushed finish.
