Black and white is such a classic combination. EMBRACE THE SONG OF SUMMER is not just a Spring/Summer necklace. It is definitely one that can be a highlight for any season!
Here's the important information for EMBRACE THE SONG OF SUMMER:
Snow quartz: on average, 30 mm x 11 mm
Mexican zebra jasper: app. 6 mm x 3 mm
Metal: sterling silver
Clasp: hook clasp; sterling silver
Extender chain: 2" / 5.1 cm; sterling silver
Length: app. 18" / 45.7 cm - 20" / 50.8 cm
The snow quartz is a pure white color, something that is hard to find in stones. So often, white stones have a grayish or yellowish cast to them. Not these! They are PURE white. And the faceting with a slight twist of the stones adds more brilliance to them! Eight snow quartz slabs were used in the front of the necklace, separated by Mexican zebra jasper rondelles and sterling silver daisy spacers and sterling silver 2 mm beads.
Mexican zebra jasper is such a gorgeous stone with its black and white coloration! It's a perfect stone to highlight the snow quartz. The jasper also gives a kinetic energy to the necklace as the rondelles slowly rotate when worn, showing either white or black or a combination of both.
To finish EMBRACE THE SONG OF SUMMER, sterling silver wire protectors connect to a sterling silver hook clasp on one side and a 2" / 5.1 cm sterling silver extender chain on the other. The extender chain gives you a choice in necklace length. A Mexican zebra jasper dangle was wire-wrapped to the end of the extender chain.
Snow Quartz is said to help the wearer become more in tune to their spiritual side and helps one have a love of truth. Mexican Zebra Jasper is said to promote compassion and understanding of others and helps to recognize the loving spirit in everyone. Silver is the metal of love and healing.
EMBRACE THE SONG OF SUMMER will come with two informational drop tags: one with the piece's name; the other lists the materials used in the necklace and the language of the stones and metals. It will be carefully packed in an organza jewelry bag, perfect for gift giving to a loved one . . . or to yourself!
