Natural Gemstones are GREEN MYSTIC QUARTZ Micro-cut and faceted big rondelles. AA –Top Quality. Very pale, very delicate color. I made a pair for myself after seeing how lovely these stones were. They’re so simple but elegant.

The color is hard to describe as it changes depending on the light and what’s near it. They can look minty, or pale aqua or sometimes look smokey grey or icy silver. I find I wear them all the time and that because the color is so icy and delicate, they go with everything!

February Tree Redux

The first of my February Trees featuring genuine faceted rondelle Amethyst gemstones set in non-tarnish silver plated wire sold so I’ve made a second. This is all the amethyst I have currently on hand but this exact pendant is ready to ship.

Amethyst derives it’s name from a Greek word meaning “without drunkenness” because it was believed to protect the wearer from poisons. Amethyst is a semi-precious gemstone and is a very powerful stone being used for insomnia, protection, wisdom and healing. Amethyst is also traditionally associated with royalty and people of great wealth. It is the birthstone of February.

July Tree – Genuine Precious Ruby Gemstone in Sterling Silver Tree of Life Pendant

Stunning ruby micro-faceted rondelles are set in sterling silver wire to form a beautiful Tree of Life pendant. Ruby is a precious gemstone and the birthstone of July.

The Tree of Life is a concept that’s been featured in myth, story and legend literally all around the world. Since ancient times, people have used variations on the theme. Connecting all things – the realms of the spirit, the physical, the Divine and the mundane – the roots of the Tree and the branches touch all things and bring them together in harmony.

This pendant is handmade using painstaking wire-wrapping techniques. Hand hammered sterling silver plated wire frames and encircles the pendant, and then sterling silver plated, non-tarnish wire is used as the roots, trunk and branches of the tree.

Ruby is one of the rare, precious gemstones (along with Emerald, Diamond and Sapphire.) Ruby is known as the most powerful gem in the universe. To own a ruby is to know contentment and peace. Given as a gift, ruby is the stone of friendship and love. It’s also associated with vitality and royalty. It is the birthstone of July.

The rubies used in this piece are 100% natural gemstone, grade A+ Micro faceted rondelles. I use approximately 10 carets (!!) of the luxe, precious gem in this pendant. It’s just a breathtaking amount of ruby.

Measuring approximately 1.25″ wide by 1.5″ high (not including bail), it’s a lovely size both for everyday and special occasion wear. You will receive the exact pendant pictured. I bought enough ruby for one pendant so snag it if you love it!

Stunning Citrine Tree of Life Pendant

I was able recently to purchase some absolutely stunning AAA-grade, micro faceted rondelle citrine gemstones. This citrine is shaded in a lovely range of colors from clear, through a champagne tone, into a dark, amber honey shade. It’s clear, flawless and sparkles like crazy. I can’t say enough about how lovely these gems are! Grin Using sterling silver wire, I took these gorgeous gems and made the most amazing Tree of Life pendant.

Citrine is a semi-precious stone in the quartz family. Citrine has been called the “stone of the mind” and is known as the lucky “Merchants Stone”. It’s said to bring luck to those in sales by placing a piece in the cash drawer. Citrine is also used as an alternative to the November birthstone, Yellow Topaz, due to it’s similar color. The pendant is approximately 1.5″ by 1.25″ in width making it a lovely size.
