|Description : The 16" Fleur-De-Lis necklace was specifically designed to accentuate the Chinchilla Millennia IV sculpture. The necklace has an elegant figure eight shaped silver clasp, and five silver Fleur-De-Lis .
The deep red garnet stones (pictured) beautifully accentuate the five silver Fleur-De-Lis and the Chinchilla Millennia pendant on the middle flower. Historically, garnets were worn by travelers to illuminate the way, for protection, and to ward off evil. The garnet's notable illuminosity comes from it being highly light refractive. Garnets have an excellent hardness rating of 7 to 7.5 on the Mohs' scale making them sturdy, and an excellent choice for everyday wear. This garnet necklace would also make an elegant accessory for formal appointments.
Also available in authentic blue lapis
The Chinchilla Millennia series was created by the highly skilled New York
based sculptor Barbara Scott Fisher. Barbara Scott Fisher studied chinchilla
conformation for several months in the process of creating this series. Her
sculptures reflect the beautiful lines and aesthetic beauty of a well conformed
chinchilla. Owners of the Chinchilla Millennia IV & Chinchilla Millennia
VI sculptures should be well pleased with the fine details such as the unusual,
anatomically correct footpads and delicate fur rolls around the ears. Chinchilla

8mm. Chinchilla Millennia VI weighs 3.3 grams in sterling silver, and measures
