Iridium, is a very rare, precious metal and is an extremely hard and brittle member of the platinum family. It has more commonly been used in the nibs of fountain pens, spacecrafts and x-ray optics than jewelry, but its gorgeous silvery-white colour means it is the ideal choice for rings, necklaces, earrings and others jewelry pieces.
It is in perfect condition and all gemstones are original with no replacements.
