Original price was: £59.95.Current price is: £53.95.

 
Two magnificent sparkling 4mm x 3mm oval-shaped Rhodolite Pink Garnet semi-precious gemstones, complimented by beautiful faceted cut 10mm x 7mm oval-shaped Black Onyx semi-precious gemstones. 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 birthstone for February, onyx has been historically important to myth and religion, being both the first stone mentioned in the Bible and, in Roman myth, goddess Venus’s clipped, crystallised nails.
 
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.
 
Commissions welcome. Thanks for looking
