The Orisha of love.The Mother of the fresh waters. She is widely loved, as She is known for healing the sick and bringing fertility and prosperity, and She especially watches over the poor and brings them what they need.
this special goddess chain was designed by our founder Eboni Merriman. This is a Lost Queens exclusive, our first step into fine jewelry and we’re so excited about it! Our Oshun necklace is one of a kind, engraved with the Lost Queens logo in the back so you know it’s real!
The inspiration for this chain was the vintage Jesus and Virgin Mary chains that we used to see in the jewelry stores along Jamaica Avenue in Queens, NY! We thought it was past time for representation for our revered African deities past Nefertiti.
This necklace comes in two different materials, both excellent quality.
Vermeil is a French term for ‘silver-gilt’, meaning this is a 925 sterling silver base filled with 14k gold. This material is just a step below actual gold and we can ensure quality for a least 2 years. Keep in mind to keep away from harmful chemicals such as perfumes, oils and lotions. This piece has been water-tested and holds well but to ensure best quality over long-term, try to remember to take it off.
14k gold plated stainless steel is another great material to invest in. Because of the high quality metal base, it’s great for sensitive skin. A step above costume jewelry but less gold content than our gold vermeil. We ensure this quality will not fade or tarnish for at least a year. Keep in mind for the best quality over time to keep out of water and away from all harsh materials such as oils, lotions and perfumes.
