Today was a really good day. The smell of fall is in the air and when I work in my jewelry studio I have a great view of the trees just beginning to turn color. While I hate to see summer go, I've been a New Englander all my life and I enjoy the change of seasons.
Althought the colors are more attuned to summer, the necklace I made today is just plain pretty. What do you think?
This necklace is made with very high quality semi precious gemstones, including: sky blue topaz, pink quartz, purple amethyst, lemon quartz, cognac citrine, green and pink amethyst. While mined in Brazil, these 8-10mm button stones were cut in Germany. The weight of the gemstones is a total of 235 carats.
The edge of each gem is exquisitely faceted while the inner part of each button gem is smooth as silk. A gorgeous center drop bead, a 15mm faceted sky blue topaz, adds the final touch to this elegant necklace. This piece is 18" in length and hosts a substantial 14K gold filled contemporary chain and simple 24k gold vermeil clasp closure.
