Gold plated leaf

You can't go any more natural-inspired jewels then gold plating real leaves of different kind of trees or plants, am i right?

While in Sighisoara, i discovered in a little shop a treasure of a pendant: a small, irregular leaf, dipped in white gold, that soon became my favorite jewelry.

It is somehow transparent, but my initial fear of being quite fragile is not true, the golded leaf is sturdy and seems it will not break easily. The transparency, the white gold and the natural form of the leaf give delicacy to the pendant, while the its size (aprox 3-4cm) makes it the perfect statement accessory.

Delicate and bold alike, feminine and different, my little white gold leaf seems to suit all my outfits lately.
