The Gift Garnet & Pearl Cross Necklace
My new Eco Friendly, One of a Kind, Handcrafted Necklace is inspired by Medieval jewellery, those elaborate pieces of jewellery made with pearls and deep red gems that decorated royalty.
This necklace is made with Fair Trade Garnets, genuine Up Cycled vintage or retro Garnets & Freshwater Cultured Pearls & Sterling Silver, some of the Sterling Silver is Upcycled like the pendant and the clasp. The centre Piece of this remarkable necklace is a gorgeous Pedant I created an old piece of jewelry (could be vintage or retro, not sure how old) The pendant measures 22mm long with 4 x 5mm round Pearls, they look like Cultured Pearls, but, they could be Freshwater Cultured. The centre of the Cross pendant has a rectangular shaped black stone, most likely Onyx. The contrast between the black & white, dark pink & white looks amazing.
Each of the Freshwater Pearls (6-8mm long) is accented by Up Cycled Sterling Silver beads (3mm). The Up Cycled Retro tumbled Genuine Garnets are so rich and the shapes combined with the freshwater pearls look so natural, yet elegant. I finished the necklace by wire wrapping loops and attaching a Recycled Vintage spring ring clasp. The beads are strung on strong (49 strand) nylon coated stainless steel wire.
Garnets have been used in antique Christian jewelry as symbols of Christ’s blood. Pearls represent transformation & the cross represents the resurrection & the living Christ.
Garnets are January Birthstones and Pearls are commonly used as June birthstones.
