This finish has a dark grey hue and is fully oxidised with liver of sulphur that will rub away over time to an antique finish with wear (you can maintain oxidisation with a few tools, check here) Here are some examples of this finish;
This finish has been oxidised, but most of the oxidisation has been rubbed away so that the silver (or bronze) shows through and the crevices have an antique time worn look to them. The metal isn't shiny but has a matte feel. It will slowly shine up over time with wear. Here are some examples of antique matte finish;
Like antique matte, the piece has been oxidised, and rubbed away to have an antique like finish, but this option has a shiny finish rather than matte, and the silver (of bronze) shines through just a bit more. Here are some examples of antique polished jewellery;
Bright Silver Polished:
This finish has no oxidisation, and has been polished to a bright white silver shine (or bronze/gold depending on your custom metal choice).
Although this option isn't usually available in my listings, if you ask for it I am happy to do it on nearly any of my items.

I have many pieces by Charlotte and they are all well made and lovely. This necklace is no different. It is comfortable to wear and feels substantial without looking heavy. I still want her starling claws ring at some point, so I will most certainly buy from her again.
Necklace shipped quickly and without any problems. It is a beautifully crafted piece. The detail on the little skeletal paws is fantastic (you can see every little bone). I love how this is a statement piece, but it still manages to be versatile and not too overwhelming. Overall, I am very happy with this purchase.
I had this beautiful necklace customized with a "XV" in bone font for my niece's 15th birthday. She absolutely loved it and I was so happy I could get her such a unique and beautiful gift. Thank you so much, Charlotte!
Love the design and stone - thanks !!!!!!!
I bought this for a gift for my sister. She absolutely loves it! She put it in right away. It fit perfectly. She went home found Charlotte's etsy page and ready picked out a second piece!
