Emerald Necklace, Natural Emerald, Cubic Zirconia, Precious Gemstones, Sterling Silver
Three magnificent natural 4mm x 3mm oval-shaped green Emerald precious gemstones, complimented by 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 Nantglyn, where a patchwork of luscious, vibrant green fields – seamed by quaint hedgerows and age-old trees – unfolds before the distant mountains.
A May birthstone, the emerald has been called the ‘Jewel of Kings’ due to its ties to historical royalty; it was popularised by the ancient Egyptian pharaoh Cleopatra and has remained in fashion since.
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.
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.
