Opal Zircon Pendant, Red Garnet, Ethiopian Opal, Blue Zircon, Semi Precious, Handmade Gemstone Jewellery, Sterling Silver

£80.95

 
Gorgeous sparkling 6mm x 5mm oval-shaped blue Zircon semi-precious gemstone, complimented by a delightful earth-mined 11mm x 7mm pear drop-shaped Ethiopian Opal semi-precious gemstone & 3mm x 3mm round red Garnet gemstones. These gemstones are handset in sterling silver in a prong setting!
 
This handmade jewellery is inspired by my photograph of a sunset over the Clwyd Valley, which, drenching the earth and sky in the tones of encroaching dusk, deftly illustrates the mesmeric beauty which makes North Wales the backdrop to countless pieces of poetry and folklore.
 
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.
 
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.
 
A birthstone for December, zircon is truly ancient, being one of the oldest minerals on the planet. In Medieval times, it was widely believed to foster prosperity, chivalry, and a thirst for knowledge.
 
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
