  • Amethyst Garnet Necklace, Yellow Green & Pink Tourmalines, Rhodolite Pink Garnet, Handmade Gemstone Jewellery, Sterling Silver, Pendant

     
    Beautiful faceted cut sparkling 9mm x 9mm round-shaped green Amethyst semi-precious gemstone, complemented by two wonderfully crafted 4mm x 3mm pear drop Rhodolite pink Garnets & three mm x 3mm round-shaped Green, Yellow & Pink Tourmalines. These gemstones are handset in sterling silver in a prong setting!
     
    This handmade jewellery is inspired by my photograph of Ruthin Castle, which acts today as a visual juxtaposition of two eras; at one end of the lush local parkland, enshrouded in ivy, slumps the ruined wall of a 13th-century fortress, whilst at the other stands a 19th-20th century manor house-turned-hotel. Both hold a unique appeal, but together they offer an indescribable allure, the red walls of the hotel contrasting gorgeously with the grey and green of the medieval remnants.
     
    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 February birthstone, amethyst has traditionally symbolised sobriety – its name derives from the Greek ametusthos, “not intoxicated”. More recently, it has also been tied to deep emotional bonds.
     
    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.
