Layered Leaves

This captivating ginkgo leaf necklace takes more than seven hours to make, from harvest to the finished piece. Each one begins with real ginkgo leaves, strengthened and preserved by a delicate layer of copper. This leaf duo is then hand-dipped in 24k gold and sterling silver, producing lustrous finishes that preserve the essence of nature's design. Symbols of love, longevity, and hope, the contrasting leaves make an elegantly organic statement paired with any ensemble. Handmade by Michale Dancer in Corte Madera, California.

A Big Hit for CHristmas


I took a chance on buying this item for my wife for Christmas as she is particular about the jewelry she wears and she had not identified this piece as something she wanted to add to her gift list. The risk was worth it when she opened the gift box and wore the necklace when we visited family on Christmas day. She liked the look of the gold on silver, was intriqued by the fact that the jeweler began the creation with a real ginko leaf, and was impressed that I had chosen a gift that represented love, hope, and longevity. SInce we have been married for 45 years and hope to remain so for 45 more, this gift said it all for me. Thank you for providing this "uncommon good" to an often bewidered shopper of a husband.

Meets all my expectations. Gave as a gift.


The ginkgo tree has great significance in our family. My daughter absolutely loved it. So elegant yet so practical. She looked beautiful with it around her neck.



A great and unique gift for a special lady friend


I never saw the actual gift other than the pictures since the recipient is in another state. From the feedback I got from her, she was extremely pleased with the gift.
