    • This is such a charming, delicate necklace in pastel hues, but with a slight bite of fuchsia colouring in the tourmaline briolettes.  The tourmalines are 7 mm x 4.5 mm.
    • These alternate with faceted cylinders of translucent aquamarine (8 mm x 3.6 mm), while at the end of the necklace the aquamarines continue to enable the necklace to lie flatly.
    • Aquamarine is the birthstone of March.
    • The gemstone aquamarine is a blue/green member of the Beryl family (while emerald is a green member). Its name comes from the Latin word aqua, meaning water of the sea, as the crystal stone resembles the sparkling colour of water in the Mediterranean.
    • This gemstone is mined mainly in Brazil, but can also be found in Nigeria, Madagascar, Pakistan and Mozambique.
    • Tourmaline is the alternate birthstone for October. First discovered by the Dutch traders off the West Coast of Italy in the 17th century, yet the name tourmaline comes from the Sinhalese term “turmali” which was the name given to all coloured crystals on the island of Sri Lanka.  The gemstone comes in pink, red, green, blue and multicoloured.  It is not a single mineral but a group of minerals related in the physical and chemical properties.  It is mined in Sri Lanka, Brazil and Africa.
    • I have used a silver toggle clasp.  Toggle clasps are easy to use and secure. My silver name label is attached at the clasp.
    • The necklace comes, like all my necklaces, with it's own colour co-ordinated silk brocaded pouch bag, made by a Shanghai tailor.
    • Length 46 cm

    • At the centre of this exquisite necklace of luminous aquamarine is a rather special and rare pendant.  But before I describe the craftsmanship and the material used, I need to relay the endearing story attached to this design.  On either end of the crescent are the heads and torsos of two shepherds.  They have been made in the shape of a crescent moon.  This is because it is their tribute to the moon for shedding its light over the fields to guide the shepherds and protect their sheep throughout the night. It is sort of a thank you pendant.  The pendant is 2 inches across (5 cm) and the crescent at its widest is 1 inch (2.5 cm).
    • This vintage, traditionally crafted crescent pendant was made in Afghanistan.  I describe this as vintage because it is difficult to put an exact age. Whether it is 50 years or 200 years old, no one has been able to say. But I know it is not new and is indeed a rare piece.  It is made of 18K gold on hardened resin, as are the vintage, now rare, 18K gold beads (13 mm) and (7mm).   The Afghani have been crafting gold for centuries. When Alexander the Great came to Afghanistan in 330 BC, his people brought many skills, one of which was working in gold.  Like the Romans, centuries later, a yellow, 18K gold was used. But one of their techniques was to take sheet gold and work it onto hardened resin and then decorate it accordingly.
    • And that is how this vintage Afghan gold pendant and the beads have been made For me, this handiwork and the yellow gold colour gives the necklace warmth and character and complements the gems.
    • The lustrous, wonderfully blue aquamarine is faceted and made in a cylindrical shape. The sizes vary, from 13 mm x 18 mm to 7 mm x 11 mm.
    • The clasp is a 14K gold toggle clasp.  I prefer using toggle clasps because they are easy to use and quite secure.
    • The necklace is 18 ½ inches long (47 cm)
