Carnelian and Freshwater Pearl Sterling Silver Pendant, Bohemian Style Jewelry, June Birthstone, August Birthstone, Mother's Day Gift, Healer's Gift
Complex and confident, Carnelian has been known to be the birthstone for both July and August at various points in history. It's a perfect gemstone to offset the fiery nature of a Leo, and infuse a Cancer with passion.
Known as a stone of motivation and endurance, leadership and courage, Carnelians have protected and inspired throughout history. A glassy, translucent stone, Carnelian is an orange-colored variety of Chalcedony, a mineral of the Quartz family. Pearl is the result of irritations of sand or speck, which is why it's considered to be the gemstone of nourishment and nurturing. It's a stone that will enhance your ability to take care and nurture yourself.
This commanding pendant makes a beautiful statement with a length of 55mm (including the bail) and a width of 38mm (at it's widest point). The glossy center stone is a lustrous teardrop shape and measures 28mm long and 21mm at the widest point. It it carefully bezel set in sterling silver and surrounded by a pleasing pattern of alternating freshwater pearls and organically teardrop-shaped Carnelian cabochons.
The 5 freshwater pearls measure 9mm x 5mm on average, and the Carnelian cabochons 7mm x 6mm. This piece is a perfect complement to anyone's bohemian style. The warm, sunset-inspired style is perfect for walking barefoot on the beach, dining al fresco in a Caribbean country or simply relaxing on the couch with a great bottle of Merlot.
