This is a 'Cardigan Tie'
'Blue Lagoon' has an approximate diameter of 40mm (11/2 inches). It is Silver plated metal with 2 Dichroic Glass Cabochons, one approx. 7mm diameter and one approx. 9mm diameter. It has a Silver plated loop at the back through which the Cardigan ends pass.
Equally suitable for scarves, sarongs and pashminas, this is a useful item to match your clothing. It is beautiful to wear with our Oceana Knitwear Cardigans, Short sleeve Cape and Boleros. It is not suitable for Oceana Swallows and Ribbed Cardigans as these do not have the ends to tie!
Each Cabochon is composed layers of glass that have been fused together at high temperatures to create a beautiful piece of Jewellery for you to enjoy.
Dichroic Glass has a multi-layer coating placed on the glass by using a highly technical vacuum deposition process.
The main characteristic of Dichroic Glass is that it has a transmitted colour (where light passes through the glass) and a completely different reflective colour (where light reflects off the glass). Furthermore, these two colours shift depending on angle of view. With the play of light, together with its vibrant colour, Dichroic Glass is a prime tool used to add interest to any piece.
Plated Silver just like solid Silver should be cleaned occasionally. Often a rub with a soft cloth is all that's required; although the piece will also benefit from the use of a proprietory Silver cleaner.
