This tie chain has a "Fordite" cabochon as it's centerpiece set in a sterling silver base and attached to a sterling silver chain. This is a truly unusual tie chain. The cabochon is covered with a crystal dome to protect the Fordite. Because of the dome, it reflects the photography light. Each piece is a completely different array of colors.
This particular Fordite comes from the Harley-Davidson motorcycle plant. Gone are the days when cars had bright paint colors, but motorcycles still use bright paint colors. The result is bright colors in this cabochon.
Round pendant measures 1-inch (25mm) wide.
