  • Hessionite Garnet & AAA Citrine Sterling Silver Necklace

    A remarkable gemstone necklace featuring a richly colourful 4mm x 5mm oval of faceted-cut red hessonite garnet alongside an amazing AAA-quality sparkling 9mm x 9mm square of semi-precious golden citrine. Each of these gemstones is elegantly hand-set in a stylish sterling silver bezel setting.

    This handmade jewellery is inspired by my photograph of some of the USA’s incredible canyonlands, rugged landscapes of sun-drenched umber rock split by yawning chasms and narrow, winding channels. Their uniquely captivating beauty – straight from the backdrops of classic Westerns – offers the perfect artistic inspiration.

    One of the birthstones for January, garnet – historically tied to friendship and faithfulness – has long been used for decoration, having been found amongst the relics of ancient Greece and Egypt.

    A November birthstone, citrine is characterised by its rich hues of yellow and gold, inspiring symbolic ties with both wealth and the sun, said to inspire, energise, and bring prosperity.

    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.

    Thanks for looking. Commissions welcome.
