Moss agate is one of my favorite gemstones. This one stands out because it only has a pinch and a sprinkle of "moss" amidst the wonderfully captivating white crystal druzy that has been polished into a comfortable and elegant pear shaped cabochon. Most pears are set with the point at north, giving it a tear drop look, but I thought this stone wanted a little edge, so I tipped the scales a little and set it pointing down, completely altering the mood.
To further drive the point home, I added a few thick links of chain to the bail so it can swing like a little pendulum. The diamond cut cable chain cuts the light and throws it back in a dazzling glint that seems to sharpen this necklace's edge.
Wear this necklace and remember that it only takes a little change in direction to truly have a profound effect.
This mint onyx seems to glow! If you're looking for an everyday necklace that radiates, you've found it.
The hammered halo around the stone supplies you with a unique sparkle that shines like diamonds and will stay radiant. Light chases around the stone and adds just enough punch, but doesn't steal the show from this glowing onyx beauty. As an added bonus, you can wear this necklace two ways! There is no back or front! One side has a more traditional looking cut with table and all, but then the other side is softly rounded with many facets!
You can't go wrong with a circle necklace. This one has its own special flare. The diamond takes the show and has the main focus, but the orbit supports with organic, hammered sparkle. There's plenty of pendants with a halo of diamonds going around. Wear this necklace and make them do a double take to see the off the beaten path hammered halo catch and dazzle the light.
This pendant is designed so that the pendant is always in the front, and the clasp is always in the back, so no more chasing the clasp around your neck all day!
Light, bubbly, elegant and sparkly. You don't even have to be a "pink girl" to love how this necklace makes you feel.
The really distinct thing about this gemstone is the layers of strawberry inclusions. There is somehow so much depth in this 4mm thick stone and the best part - it's all natural! I adore the layers of pretty, soft pinks, so I wanted to play it up in the character of how I set it.
To make it even lighter and airy, I stationed delicate, but strong, hammered circles as part of the chain. This breaks up the otherwise straight and predictable line of the chain and keeps the piece spirited and whimsical. The ideas are simple, but natural and fit with the stone.
Wear this necklace as a reminder of your inner beauty, complexity and strength. The light will glint and run circles around your neck when you wear it and the depth of the stone will draw you in and remind you of the beautiful complexity that is already inside you, bubbling out. There is not another one like it.
