Beautiful Artisan Crafted Jewelry from Uno Alla Volta

Avi's Amber And Sterling Silver Oval Pendant NecklaceLike most women, I love jewelry and I’ve collected a lot of it over the years. In my collection I’ve got estate pieces, one-of-a-kind artisan pieces, mass retail market pieces and everything in between. With that said, I’m extremely fond of artisan-crafted pieces that are unique in their style.

One of my favorite go-to places to shop for jewelry happens to be Uno Alla Volta. What makes this company so special is that they curate artisans from around the globe to create handcrafted products that are ONLY available through them. Many of the artisans are family-owned workshops that have perfected their craft over the generations. The brand is passionate about reaching consumers on a very personal level with products made from the hearts and hands of these very artisans.

Avi's Amber And Sterling Silver Oval Pendant Necklace

For the review I received the Avi’s Amber And Sterling Silver Oval Pendant Necklace to check out for all of you. The pendant is a genuine amber cabochon with hand-forged sterling silver framing it. If I had to describe the framing, I would describe it as having 2 polished rings and one twisted ring going around it. I love the simplicity of it which allows the amber cabochon to be the main focal point.

The pendant hangs from a 17″ long sterling silver chain with an easy-to-use lobster claw clasp. If you want to remove the pendant and hang it from a longer neck chain, you can certainly do that. I think it would look equally as beautiful hanging off a black leather cord for a more casual look and then put it back onto the sterling silver chain for a more dressier look. (note, you ONLY get the sterling silver chain with the pendant, I was just giving you a few ideas on how you can wear it).

Avi's Amber And Sterling Silver Oval Pendant Necklace

This gorgeous necklace is handcrafted by the artist Avi. Here’s some information about this very talented artist:

For more than 30 years, our Israeli jewelry designer has been creating eye-catching works of wearable art in precious metals. A supportive mentor of new artisans, he is also an active participant in human rights causes in his home city.

I love my new amber necklace and have been wearing it quite often. Every time I put it on, I get compliments. My mother was over visiting a few days ago (she’s shown in the photos) and she borrowed the necklace from me. Yes, she loves it too!

  3. Susan Hartman says:

    Thats a very pretty necklace. I love amber. The sterling silver & amber remind me of Arizona. The size of the pendant makes astatement without being too large.

  4. Peggy Nunn says:

    It is a very pretty necklace. I went to their site. They have other beautiful jewelry pieces. They are very unique and would be a great gift for anyone.

    I agree, this would really look good on black leather cord. It would give it a totally different vibe on leather, and a more boho look which I adore. Your Mom looks great wearing this- perhaps you need to surprise her with one of her own! She models it well and the amber is really pretty on her.

  6. Very beautiful necklace. I’m afraid to go to their site to spend money I don’t have. I love unique jewelry.

  7. I love that necklace! I prefer silver or white gold when I am choosing pieces for myself. I also like the size of the pendant. It is not too small nor too big. Perfect!
