Queen Esther pendant design is based on an antique piece once owned by a Holocaust survivor. Sterling silver Star of David with filigree border; presented on 18" dainty chain. Openwork detailing; secure circle clasp closure; a unique and beautiful Judaic design. Pendant is 1" approximately.
I love this piece! I have been looking for several years for a classy looking Star of David, and this fits the bill! It's actually better than I expected. The pendant's design is even more elegant in person, and the chain is really nice as well. The size is a little bit larger than I imagined, but it is by no means excessively large. And it also can be worn casually or for more dressy functions. I don't usually get too excited over jewelry, but I LOVE this necklace and would absolutely recommend it!
This sterling silver pendant is 1" high by 7/8" wide. Including the bale, it hangs down a total of 1 3/8" from the chain. It is polished and shiny when the light hits it, but it is not sparkly. The chain is about 19.5 inches in length and is stamped "925", which indicates that it is sterling silver also--- a pleasant surprise, because that was not mentioned in the website description. It is a box chain, which is recognized for strength and durability.
The craftsmanship is very good. The encircling filigree work softens the pointed edges of the Star of David. It's a graceful and feminine piece of jewelry, pretty but casual enough for everyday wear.
