Vintage Natural Single Strand Lapis Lazuli Gemstone Bead Necklace - $40

I believe these were purchased in the 80s. This dainty necklace is approximately 16-inches long with no clasp. The beads are approximately 4mm in size in a variety of blue hues, with every 8th bead being approximately 3mm in size and goldish in color (I'm not sure of the type of bead); total weight = 33.45 grams. This is in pre-owned/pre-loved condition; see photos for condition and further description. I searched Rubylane.com and other similar sites that sell vintage jewelry to come up with my selling price.

Throughout the ages lapis lazuli has been a symbol of royalty. The Egyptians, Sumerians and Babylonians believed it was associated with the divine feminine. Catherine the Great was a great admirer of this stone and had an entire ballroom paneled with it. The stone is said to connect the mind with the heart; and is considered to be a symbol of truth, friendship, harmony and to help love grow without fear.

NOTE: The "reply" feature through Craigslist works intermittently, as I've heard from potential clients that they didn't receive my replies to their inquiries. I usually reply within a few hours of receipt. Therefore, a text may be better if you don't receive an e-mail reply from me through the Craigslist feature. Also, please check your junk e-mail for my reply.

Cash only, e-mail / text. (Post deleted when sold) In-person transactions only / no personal home deliveries. Additionally, Scammers take note, I do not do Google Codes, voice numbers or anything like that to allegedly "prove" that my post is real.

Can meet at the Waugh Chapel Village Safeway (2466 Chapel Lake Dr., Gambrills, MD 21054); or, depending upon the day of the week, at the old Sears parking lot at the White Oak Shopping Center (11255 New Hampshire Ave., Silver Spring, MD 20904)
