Yellow gold vermeil crab pendant with satin shell on an adjustable link style chain.

Our sterling silver Satin Shell Yellow Gold Crab Necklace combines high polished and brushed satin yellow gold vermeil for a sophisticated, modern feel. This substantial, but super lightweight pendant hangs from a coordinating, adjustable link chain. This necklace is a very refined and polished way to wear a little bit of Chesapeake Bay heritage.

Blue crabs are iconic to the beautiful Chesapeake Bay. Named for their blue claws, these creatures are vital to the bay ecosystem. Crabs shed their skins in order to grow, and therefore they can be a symbol of the cycles of life and rebirth. 

What is vermeil? Gold vermeil (pronounced ver-may) is a thick layer of gold which is electroplated over a sterling silver base. This binds the gold and silver together, making vermeil much less likely to fade, tarnish, or wear down. In comparison, gold plating is a thinner layer of gold over a lower-end metal like brass or copper.

What is a satin finish? A satin finish is in between a brushed and a glossy finish. A brushed finish is more rustic looking and you will see and feel a textured finish. A glossy finish is very shiny and smooth. You will be able to see your reflection when looking directly at this finish. A satin finish, like glossy, is also smooth to the touch but it doesn't have the high shine, rather has a matte finish. This finish beautifully accents our Satin Shell Yellow Gold Crab Necklace.
