Carnelian and Freshwater Pearl Sterling Silver Pendant
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.
