  • Cognac Tourmaline Pendant, Cubic Zirconia, Semi Precious, Handmade Gemstone Jewellery, Sterling Silver Heart Necklace

    Wonderfully crafted 6mm x 4mm pear drop-shaped cognac Tourmaline semi-precious faceted gemstone, complemented by several lovely 1mm x 1mm round-shaped Cubic Zirconia gemstones. These gemstones are handset in sterling silver in a prong setting & cluster setting respectively in a heart design.
     
    This handmade jewellery is inspired by my photograph of Valle Crucis Abbey, a ruined 13th-century site of worship situated near Llangollen in Denbighshire. Boasting an elaborate doorway, intricately-carved windows, and several acres of surrounding grassland which now operate as a stunning caravan park, Valle Crucis Abbey offers a unique and engaging slice of Welsh history and architecture.
     
    A birthstone for the month of April first developed in the USSR in the 1970s, cubic zirconia is created from base substances found in extraterrestrial rock from both asteroids and the moon.
     
    An October birthstone, tourmaline was reported by one 18th-century Dutch scientist to induce sleep, whilst ancient traditions from Africa and India believe it to strengthen moral judgement.
     
    Attached to an 18-inch chain, this dazzling gemstone pendant will arrive packaged in a small gift box featuring the image of its inspiration on the inside of the lid. Combined with an organza bag, this results in a gorgeously-presented piece which makes the perfect gift.
