New York City's Empire State Building Landmark Bead in Sterling Silver by Carina
Remember your trip up to the observatory of New York City's famous Empire State Building, located at Fifth Avenue at 34th Street. Who can forget the 360 degree view of the Big Apple from up there? This NYC icon is a New York City Landmark and a National Historic Landmark. It soars more than a quarter of a mile into the atmosphere above the heart of Manhattan.
Located on the 86th floor, 1,050 feet (320 meters) above the city's bustling streets, the Observatory offers panoramic views from within a glass enclosed pavilion and from the surrounding open-air promenade. Since the Observatory opened to the public in 1931, over a hundred million visitors have been thrilled by the awe-inspiring vision of the city beneath them. Movie buffs can stand on the 86th floor where Cary Grant waited in vain for Deborah Kerr in an "Affair to Remember", while Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan had their fateful meeting at the Empire State Building in the movie "Sleepless in Seattle."
Remember your visit to this top New York landmark with this 3-D sterling silver bead featuring an accurate rendition of the actual building. This bead features a 5 mm. interior smooth bore bead hole to wear as a pendant or on a bracelet. This bead is compatible with chains by all the major brands, such as Chamilia, Pandora, Pasha, Biagi, Troll, and Bling. Its measurements are approximately 1/2" long by 3/8" tall.
This detailed bead was designed by San Francisco Bay Area artist Shani Yokoyama, hand carved by a master bead wax carver, and then cast in high quality sterling silver with oxidized accents.
