This is a blue Chalcedony gemstone necklace. Chalcedony belongs to the quartz group of minerals. It was used in ancient times by Egyptians, Greeks and Romans for jewellery and its name may have been derived from the Greek City of Chalcedony. This necklace is most unusual because the stone has been cut into graduated pear-shaped Briolettes which is a beautiful and elegant faceted gemstone cut. The gemstones are on a 21 cm string ranging and from 10 to 20mm each sone. They hang from an attractive adjustable silver chain to allow it to be worn at a variety of lengths from 44.5 cm to 49cm.
This very sparkly gemstone necklace comprises of three strings of faceted yellow citrine and to one string I have added
Ocean Jasper necklace with shades of colours greens, greys, creams and golden tones. They are irregular in shape and have been arranged at the front of the necklace spaced with twig shaped pieces of silver. I have then attached them to a hollow silver hoop and it fastens with a hook and eye at the back. Approximate length 46cm
This beautiful pink Jasper necklace is made up of graduating oval pebbles ranging from 2.5cm x 2cm up to 4cm x 3cm. They are many shades of soft pink mixed with buttermilk creams. I have placed a large filigree Silver peddle of centre which measures 4cm x 3cm as a sparkling feature. The necklace measures 52 cm in length.
This necklace is made up of six Poppy Jasper coins each measuring 3cm in diameter. They have shades of red, grey, green and sand tones. I have placed a silver spiral at the front. The stones are connected from a small cone on each side then a chain measuring 20cm in length that comes up around the neck. The necklace is adjustable and the total length is 54cm.
This necklace consists of beautiful freeform Hematite crystals. The Inclusions in the gemstones give lovely patterns. The beads are in hues of orange, red and pink. It is very delicate looking and most unusual. I have placed silver torpedo like silver beads in the necklace for contrast. Approximatley 45cm Long and each nugget is about 1cm in diameter.
The silver links on this chain have been formed using the texture of a leaf from a Ginkgo tree. Between some of the links I have used fresh water pearls 7-10mm each which are cream, blue and green in shade. The chain is 1cm wide and 103 cm long which enables you to wear it long or wrap it round twice for a shorter necklace. I have made a matching toggle clasp which is easy to open.
