If you’re looking for modern and elegant jewelry at an affordable price that looks great, a dichroic glass necklace might appeal to you. Dichroic glass jewelry is relatively new to the world of fashion jewelry and is becoming increasingly popular.
The glass itself is very attractive. Manufactured in such a way that fine metal oxides are completely evaporated and adhere to the surface of the laminated glass, the final stone resembles a multicolored gemstone. It comes in a variety of types like COE96 dichroic glass that you can buy from art glass stores or online sites.
The more layers you add to the glass, the more discoloration you can see in dichroic glass. It is this trait that truly stimulates the imagination of the crafters who meticulously design and manufacture Dichroic jewelry, but also conquers the hearts of millions of costume jewelry wearers.
There are many types of dichroic necklaces, from leather necklaces to gold necklaces. Most necklaces include a single pear dichroic glass cabochon, or perhaps one or two cylindrical-style cabochons hanging on a chain or string.
You can often purchase matching earrings to match your necklace, although there may be slight differences between the necklace and the earring as no two designs are exactly alike when it comes to molten glass.
The differences, however, are mostly minor differences in pattern and color refraction that seem to add to the charm of a dichroic necklace, not straying from it.
Some glass gems falling from this type of molten glass jewelry are shaped into ovals, hearts, squares, or diamonds, while others leave the cabochon complete and exactly the way it was made.
