Fordite Pendant Necklace

$155.00

The most precious gemstones are the result of very common minerals and elements building up over time; carbon becomes diamonds, corundum becomes rubies or sapphires, and automotive paint becomes Fordite.

The by-product of a now defunct method of painting automobile body panels, Fordite (an innocuous name for a product that may have come from any U.S.-manufactured vehicle up through the late 1970s) is the build up of dozens of many colorful layers that harden repeatedly in the curing ovens.

This one-of-a-kind piece is made from Fordite and carries with it a piece of Detroit’s great automotive heritage. Wear it pride; it goes best with a candy-apple red V8 convertible.
