Garnet Topaz Necklace, Rhodolite Garnet, Semi Precious Gemstones, Sterling Silver

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.
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.
One of November’s birthstones, topaz is thought to be named after the Sanskrit tapas, meaning ‘fire’. Hindu literature points to its functions as a lengthener of life and provider of wisdom.
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.
