This pink sapphire necklace with its Swarovski crystals and pink Peruvian opal beads is simultaneously classic and mouth-watering sweet. The necklace features lovely pink sapphire rondelles of a soft hue which convey a sense of classic beauty. The pink shades range from a rosy pink to hues of cotton candy, heightening the sweet theme of the necklace. The light pink hand-faceted Peruvian opal has natural inclusions and both compliments and contrasts the sapphire, and the light rose and rose pink Swarovski crystal bicones add dazzling sparkle. I placed trios of sapphire between trios of opal and separated those segments with small light rose and larger rose pink Swarovski crystals. Teeny tiny Hills Tribe sterling silver beads are interspersed to provide further separation. A sterling silver hook clasp completes the design.
The earrings feature sapphire rondelles and Swarovski crystals in light rose and rose pink. The earrings are suspended from sterling silver French-style earwires and measure 1 ½ inches from the piercing. The necklace measures 19 inches of pure sweetness.
Sapphires are the “non-red” variety of the gemstone known as Ruby. The sapphire is a precious gem and is the September gemstone. It has been a favored stone and has adorned the jewelry of royalty dating from at least 2,400 years ago to the present day. The sapphire is believed to promote serenity, joy and peace as well as increase mental clarity. Opal is said to soothe the eyes and emotions and it thought to enhance creativity. This sweet and classic sapphire necklace and earrings combination synthesizes the love of pink with the natural hues of nature and the fabulous sparkle of Swarovski crystal. It is a necklace you will want to wear again and again!
