Tumbled natural carnelian and silvery cultured pearls are the stars of this Carnelian Pearl necklace. All of this natural beauty is hand strung with care on gossamer sterling silver chain. All finishes and findings are solid sterling silver, as is fitting for such rare beauty.
Egyptian lore refers to carnelian as “the setting sun” and associates the rich color with the vitality of life itself. It is the stone of courage and the semiprecious birthstone for the month of July.
Pearls are the traditional birthstone for the month of June, and the traditional gift for the 30th wedding anniversary. In many cultures, pearls symbolize purity of spirit and wisdom gained over time, like the layers of nacre that create this natural gem.
This Carnelian Pearl Princess length strand measures approximately 18 inches long including the finishing clasp. This necklace – from start to finish – was made at my workbench. The ingredients are natural tumbled carnelian gemstones and silvery cultured pearls. All metal elements included in this piece are solid sterling silver. This classic single strand weighs approximately 37.5 grams (1.3 ounces).
Silver will patina over time, revealing highlights with your touch. This process is natural; Use of corrosive solvents or dips is not recommended.
