All of rock crystal orbs are band wrapped in a simple sterling silver band with a long and short figaro link chain connecting each one.

Matching earring also offered in another listing.
For thousands of years this optically clear quartz has been used as gemstones because of its enchanting ability to absorb and affect light. Possessing the property of double refraction (where images viewed through them appear upside-down and reversed) these works of art are from turn of the century and are increasingly more difficult to find, especially in wearable condition. Pools of light jewelry were believed to have a magical and mystical effect on the wearer. The ancient Chinese held the belief that the chi of good luck resided within each bead, and if drilled would escape. As a result the orbs that make up "pools of light" are solid and joined using wraps.
