Peridot In a Row Necklace

Seven beautiful, micro-faceted peridot gemstone rondelles are strung in a row on a delicate sterling silver plated chain to form this simple, modern necklace.

Peridot is a natural, semi-precious gemstone in the most amazing green color. The birthstone of August, it has been considered sacred and a symbol of purity for thousands of years. It was considered a stone of Springtime and a gift of Mother Nature by the Ancients. It is a stone of lightness and beauty and is said to enhance wellness in the spiritually aware. Peridot, while possessing a uniquely vivid tone of green has some natural variation in it.

This lovely necklace is simple but elegant. The peridot cluster is approximately 1″ long and the total length of the necklace is 16″. It’s finished with a lobster claw clasp.

Lariat Style Necklace featuring Bird Nest, Dainty Bird Charm and Leafy Branch

Dainty little bird charm, bird nest and leafy branch come together with chrysocolla gemstone “eggs” all set in sterling silver to make a lovely lariat style necklace.

I started with a delicate sterling silver plated link chain. I next added accents of chrysocolla gemstone which is an amazing stone of blue and green swirled together. (Each bead looks like a little mini planet Earth.) Then I added a leafy branch connector. The chain slips through the last leaf in a faux lariat style and from the chain dangles a bird nest with three additional chrysocolla “eggs.” Below the nest is a flying swallow bird charm. The whole necklace is finished with a toggle clasp.

This asymmetrical design allows you to adjust how you wear it. You can wear it shorter and closer to the neck with a long dangle of the nest, or, you can wear it longer on the neck with a shorter nest dangle. It’s very versatile and allows you to pair this piece with many different shirts and necklines as a result. The total length is 18″

It’s such a sweet little necklace and the color of the chrysocolla is so pretty. It’s just a great piece in it’s simplicity and style!

14K Gold Earrings Featuring Rainbow of Genuine Gemstones

A classically simple, dainty pair of earrings in 14k gold featuring a rainbow of genuine gemstones.

I started with a 14k gold filled, ball tipped headpin and then strung six genuine gemstones on. All gemstones are high quality, micro faceted rondelles. The French hooks are 14k plated and thus hypoallergenic for those sensitive to some metals.

The gemstones used in the piece starting from the bottom are:

* Ruby – one of four precious gemstones and the birthstone of July

* Imperial Topaz – a very rare form of topaz, these are pale yellow in color. Topaz is the birthstone of November and is semi-precious.

* Green Tourmaline – Tourmaline comes in a variety of colors and this one is a lovely olive tone. Tourmaline is semi-precious.

* Blue Topaz – Another semi-precious stone, blue topaz has a crystal clear blue sky color. It’s an alternative birthstone for December.

* Amethyst – Long associated with royalty, amethyst is a gorgeous and rich purple tone. This semi-precious stone is the birthstone of February.

* White Topaz – White topaz is a flawlessly clear crystal stone. It’s used as an alternative to diamond for April’s birthstone. Also semi-precious.

The earrings measure a total length just shy of 1.5″ long. They’re dainty and feminine. They would be a lovely gift for someone who likes rainbow colors, or who is interested in chakra healing and colors.

They would also be a very special gift for a young woman who may not want or need a large pair of earrings but for whom a pair of 14k gold gemstone earrings would be a special gift. It could be a pair of “grown up” jewelry all her own.

I only have the one pair of these at this time as I put them together with the extra gems leftover after other projects. To individually purchase this many stones to make a pair would be quite expensive so this is a great way to get some high quality gems in a lovely little, affordable package.
