Chinese Lantern Plant Necklace

324.00

Physalis Alkekengi is the Latin name for the Chinese or Japanese lantern plant. These plants are related to gooseberries and tomatillos, and each contain a berry covered by a husk. As these husks dry out naturally, they appear skeletal and let you see the berry on the inside.

This pendant has been handcrafted using the pattern of a real lantern plant with an artistic representation of the veins that is hand cut with a jeweler's saw. Inside is a natural orange spessartine garnet crystal that is prong set. The petals are formed into the shape of the outer pod around the gemstone. 

SIZE & LENGTH: 

Including the stem, the pendant measures 1.75 x .75 in. ( 4.5 x 2 cm). 

The total length of the chain is 32"- this is a very long style that hits a couple inches above the belly button for me (I'm 5'2"). Please let me know if you are interested in a shorter chain for this pendant before purchasing, though I have chosen this length because I feel it is the best fit for the piece. 

IMPORTANT: This pendant is not made to be opened. Doing so would compromise the strength of the outer pod.
