The eye-catching and beautiful black and white 'Dzi' Agate beads used to make this necklaces made are a tribute to the original, very valued, Tibetan Dzi beads. These simulated 'Dzi' Agate beads are dyed to resemble natural Dzi beads. Yet they are still beautiful and striking. I have used barrel shaped 'Dzi' beads, along with red Coral rondelles, carved Pyrite rounds, black and white round Agate beads, and orange Coral rounds to create this necklace. The beads are highlighted and separated by wavy lead-free Pewter potato-chip spacers. The center of this necklace is a beautiful hand-cast, lead-free pendant of two women dancing. The pendant is adorned on either side by red Coral bead garlands. This pendant is made by Inviciti Jewelers, Vincent and Nooma of Orange City, Florida. So happy and so care-free. Do you love to dance? The necklace come with a pair of matching earrings.
Agates are very fine crystalline quartz and are very durable semi-precious gemstones. Since Agate is laid down by nature in layers, they are often found in creatively striped. Agates are found all over the world and since ancient times have been considered a powerful healing stone, often worn as a talisman or amulet. Generally associated with courage, prudence and strength of emotion.
Coral beads have played a significant part in jewelry throughout history. Red Coral jewelry evokes love and passion, increase your confidence and energy. People of many cultures thought that red coral provided protection from fire and violence.
