If you are looking for fashion jewelry that is reasonably priced, modern and chic, and that looks good you may be interested in a dichroic glass necklace. Dichroic glass jewelry is a fairly new arrival on the fashion jewelry scene and it is really gaining in popularity.



The glass itself is very eye-catching. Made in such a way that fine metal oxides are actually vaporized and attached to the glass surface in layers, the final stone resembles a multi-colored gem. The more layers added to the glass, the more color changes you can see in the dichroic glass. It is this feature that has really captivated the imaginations of not just the artisans who carefully design and make dichroic jewelry, but has also captured the hearts of millions of fashion jewelry wearers.



There are many different styles of dichroic necklaces, ranging from leather to gold necklaces. Most of the necklaces feature a single drop dichroic glass cabochon, or perhaps one or two cylindrical style cabs hanging down from the chain or cord. Oftentimes too you can buy matching earrings that go with your necklace although there will most likely be a little difference between the necklace and the earrings as no two creations are exactly the same when it comes to fused glass. Still, the differences are usually minor differences in pattern and color refraction which actually seem to add to the charm of the dichroic necklace rather than detract from it.



Some of the glass gems falling from this type of fused glass jewelry have been shaped into ovals, hearts, squares or diamonds while other's leave the cabochon complete and exactly proportioned as it was when they received it. Either style looks great, though I have to admit that my preference is more towards the naturally styled gem shape as opposed to one that has been shaped into a specific design. Again, it seems to add to the individualism of the jewelry.



The great thing about dichroic jewelry is that for the most part it is often made in small studios by single design artists. This alone means that rather than mass produced jewelry there are a lot of different styles of jewelry made and a huge choice when it comes to buying a dichroic glass necklace, earrings or bracelet. Many of these smaller studios have a web presence and have made their jewelry available for ordering online, so it is very easy to make an online purchase.
