If you like drama in soft and subtle hues, this is your necklace. The aquamarines and pearls look wonderful against the skin. The colors are perfect with winter whites, soft blues or other pastels. The length works well with an open neck, a round neckline or a mock turtleneck. This special necklace is a great gift for someone special.
Aquamarine is the birthstone for March. The name means water of the sea. Its metaphysical properties are said to be Psychic abilities, peace, courage, communication and purification.
I combined varied shapes of aquamarine, freshwater pearls and quartz (rock) crystal in this elegant and bold triple strand necklace. The closure is a vermeil (gold on sterling silver) round box clasp. There are inclusions (dark spots) in the large hammered aquamarine stones. Imperfections are inherent in the cut, they do not detract from the beauty of the stones.
The necklace is approximately 18 inches long with about a 2 1/4 inch drop.
