This pretty necklace and earring set is handcrafted of sterling silver and iolite beads. The necklace is 24 inches long with a 2 inch long drop. The matching earrings measure 2 inches long not including the French hooks. I were surprised at the length of the necklace, as standard necklace length is usually 16-20 inches. If you'd like it adjusted, just reply to your order and I'll shorten the chain for you for no additional charge. Just let me know how long you'd like the chain. Returns cannot be accepted if your necklace has been modified. This lovely set comes packed in a gift box. Spiritually the spiral represents a connectivity with the divine, spiraling from the outer ego (the outside world) into the inner soul (cosmic awareness and enlightenment). The spiral represents evolution and growth of the spirit. It is a symbol of change and development.
