Labradorite stone is known for its natural beauty and the way the light reflects in the gem to create vibrant blue and green colors. The stone has been used in unique jewelry designs for years, and custom creations have led to a wide range of uses for labradorite.
As you shop for labradorite necklaces, make sure that you know exactly what to look for and the differences between labradorite options.
1. Raw Labradorite Necklaces
If you want a necklace with unpolished and natural labradorite as it was taken from the earth, then shop for raw labradorite necklaces. Every stone is completely unique, creating a truly one-of-a-kind piece. You can see the jagged edges and unique designs that make the stone stand out when worn.
The stone may be held to the necklace directly with a drilled hole or mounted to a pendant design. Pick a style that matches your unique tastes.
2. Beaded Labradorite Necklaces
The complete opposite of a raw labradorite necklace is a beaded necklace. The stones in the necklace are completely polished down and formed into small spheres. The spheres are typically placed in a patterned necklace design and may pair with other colored beads to create a unique look and design.
The spheres may also come in different sizes to create a symmetrical design. For example, the center may feature one large sphere and be surrounded by two medium spheres. The rest of the necklace could feature all small spheres. The unique blend of colors found in labradorite gives each design a unique look and the colors will change as the beads roll around.
The necklace chain could be anything from gold to silver or a rope design. Each style matches the stones, and your decision depends on personal preference.
3. Dragon Heart Necklaces
The unique look of labradorite has given the stone the nickname "dragon heart" when the stone is shaped into an oval design. Many of the dragon heart necklaces are styled the same and paired with a netted base to hold the stone. The stones are typically large, around the size of an egg, and the netting will help keep the stone in place on the necklace.
The netting leaves large gaps so you can easily see the stone and all the brilliant color designs. You can wear the stone around your neck or attach to another item like a purse or a backpack.
