Serene natural 4mm x 4mm round-shaped pink Ruby precious gemstones, complimented by gorgeous earth-mined 8mm x 6mm pear drop-shaped Ethiopian Opal semi-precious gemstones & several 1mm x 1mm round-shaped Cubic Zirconia (lab) gemstones. These gemstones are handset in sterling silver in a prong setting & cluster setting respectfully!
This handmade jewellery is inspired by my photograph of the delightful pink flowers of Bayou Bend Collection and Gardens, a 14-acre love-letter to fine art and floristry, found in Houston, Texas. Its carefully-maintained gardens are gorgeously reminiscent of the Italian Renaissance style, complete with elegantly-carved statues of classical gods and goddesses.
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.
A birthstone for July, ruby has long represented power and success; for 8th-century Arabic mystics, dreams of rubies foretold good fortune, whilst in ancient Burma they stood for life itself.
As with other opals, Ethiopian opal is a birthstone for October, said to brim with joyously positive emotion whilst also invoking the calmness and restraint required to balance such ardour.
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.
