How To Make Your New Larvikite Agate Gold Chain Unique

Posted on

Your new Larvikite agate gold chain is sure to enhance any outfit you decide to put on. You likely want to make sure that your new piece of jewelry is unique and won't be found around the neck of anyone else. Here are a few things you can do to give your new larvikite necklace a unique look:

Add Another Stone

Larvikite is a stone that comes from Larvik, Norway, which is how it got its name. This stone is usually dark with flecks of minerals (called feldspar) shining through. So, what better way to brighten your gold chain up than to add a lighter-colored stone to the mix? There are lots of different options to choose from including:

Yellow Stones:

  • Agate
  • Quartz
  • Tourmaline
  • Zircon

Pink Stones:

  • Rose
  • Coral
  • Spinel
  • Opal

Orange Stones:

  • Rutile
  • Citrine
  • Moonstone
  • Andesine

Depending on how your larvikite stone is wrapped, you may be able to set your new lighter stone directly next to it, below it, or above it. Alternatively, you can dangle the stones so that they light bump against one another when your chain moves on your chest. You may even be able to have a jeweler fuse the two stones together to create one bigger multicolored stone.

Have the Stone Engraved

Another fun way to give your new larvikite agate gold chain a unique look is to have the larvikite stone engraved. If the stone is small, you could have just a small heart, star, or sun engraved on the face of it. If the stone is bigger, there are lots of engraving options to consider including:

  • Your name or initials.
  • Your birth year.
  • Your zodiac sign.
  • Your child or significant other's name.
  • Your favorite slogan or saying.
  • An inspirational word.
  • A handwritten pattern.

Your engraver will be able to tell you exactly what will and won't fit on your larvikite stone. The design ideas that are appropriate for your stone should be able to be turned into a custom engraving by the engraver that fits the stone exactly.

Add Charms to the Chain

If you want to leave your larvikite stone alone, you can give your new piece of jewelry a unique look by adding charms to the gold chain. The smaller the charms, the better to ensure that the chain does not end up looking gaudy. Small flowers, rainbows, or stars would be a cute touch that gives the jewelry a playful look. Adding just a couple of small diamond charms will give the jewelry a more elegant look. For something a little darker, consider small moon or cloud charms.
