New Necklace Designs #32 Equestrian Collection “Equestrian Opal” Necklace

Equestrian Opal

This “Equestrian Opal” Necklace is made from a colorful African Opal Gemstone.  There are many varieties of African Opal and most reflect light with a play of color. The name comes from the Latin word (opalus) meaning “seeing jewel”. Most opals are 60 million years old and date back to the dinosaurs. In ancient times, it was accepted as a symbol of faithfulness and confidence. Swarovski crystals add an exciting glitter and a luxury quality.  They are precisely cut crystals, which are related to luxury products. Daniel Swarovski, a glass cutter, established a crystal cutting factory in Austria using hydroelectricity in 1895. There are several golden which bring a flash of light to this necklace.  This necklace is completed with Brass Fittings.  The Horse represents freedom, stamina, mobility, the land, travel, power, freedom, grace, and nobility in Native American legends and lore.

Newest Design #4–Beryl Waterfall – Metaphysical Collection

The lovely necklace included here  is one of the newest in our Metaphysical Collection.  Our Metaphysical collection includes a rough stone and polished stones often of the same variety.  This necklace however has matching stones in color however the type of stone varies from the central to the necklace inclusions.  The semi-precious gemstones included here are Beryl and Aventurine.  Beryl is a green gemstone which  is closely related to Emerald.  The lighter color of this rough stone made the Aventurine a perfect match.  Aventurine is my personal favorite as a gemstone so I was delighted to put it with the lovely Beryl Central.  Also included in this piece are matching Swarovski Crystals in a melon shade as well as Sterling Silver Elements.

Russian Ladybug Necklace

Absolutely Unique’s Newest Necklace Design

My newest design completion is a Russian Fabergé Egg Pendant, which was purchased in St. Petersburg, Russia on a trip there in 2011.  These eggs resemble the famous Fabergé Eggs which originated in Russia.  The jeweled eggs were created by Peter Carl Fabergé and the most famous were presented to Alexander II and Nicholas II as Easter gifts for their wives and mothers.  The trademark is now owned by Fabergé Limited, which makes egg-themed jewellery.  These tiny replicas have a jeweled exterior and open to reveal a delicate design or dangling golden angel or butterfly enclosed in a golden case.  Each tiny Fabregé Pendant is different and only five were purchased on this trip.

This exquisite and unique egg is embellished with crystals and opens to reveal a delicate Butterfly and Ladybug nested within a golden orb.  Azurmalachite, a lovely green and blue semiprecious gemstone, matched the jeweled case beautifully.  Also included in this delicate 22″ piece are lovely 4mm Malachite Beads, forest green Freshwater Pearls, sapphire Swarovski Crystals, and 14K Gold Beads and Toggle Clasp. This is an exquisite example which returns one to an oppulent time of kings when ladies of the court wore necklaces of quality and beauty.  Earrings are included in this lovely set.
