Simple initial necklace, without oxidation

Most handstamped silver necklaces are oxidized, meaning the impressions left in the metal from stamping are darkened and then the final finish is chosen and applied (for example, polished or brushed), however it seems gold necklaces are more popular when the impression is left unoxidized. Leaving the metal bare gives the piece a classy, minimalistic look. Turns out it looks pretty nice on silver, too.
