Ultra Alta 18K Gold Vermeil Hand Necklace
Alta is a simple lac dye pattern made iconic by Bengali brides, but this pattern is also used using henna, which was thought to keep the body cool in the heat of South Asia, North Africa and the Middle East.
Handpainted Alta on 18K Matte Gold Vermeil sculptural hand pendant on 18K gold chain & decorative toggle clasp.
Enamel painted Alta detail.
(Some color variation due to red hue on your computer screen)
18K Gold Vermeil is gold micron plating on sterling silver, and this is painted and will actually fade off, like henna!
Avoid water to keep your necklace in pristine condition for as long as possible
