This exquisite choker combines the cool elegance of frosted rock quartz with the vibrant sparkle of faceted rock quartz crystal and the shimmery blues of moonstone. The matching earrings add the perfect touch. The five central frosted quartz beads are a fluted shape and the eight additional frosted quartz beads are round. The beads were hand cut, and the frosted effect was created by sandblasting the surface. I provided contrast and tons of glitter by alternating the frosted beads with micro-faceted genuine rock crystal beads of an excellent quality. They have amazing clarity and refract the light with their 128 precision cut facets.
The quartz beads are separated by moonstone rondelles with elusive opalescence and blue iridescent flashes which seem to disappear and reappear. A sterling silver hook clasp embellished with spirals completes the necklace design. The earrings are comprised of fluted frosted quartz beads, sparkling faceted quartz, and moonstone. These lovely elements are suspended from sterling silver French-style earwires. The earrings measure 1 7/8 inches from the piercing, and the choker measures 16 ½ inches in length. Please contact me if you are interested in a different length.
Rock quartz crystal stays cool to the touch, and the ancient Greeks believed the crystals were fossilized ice. Despite its cool composition, you can safely wear these in the winter without being the ice princess. Historically, crystal balls were created from rock quartz in the belief that quartz could be used to predict the future. Cultures all over the world have considered quartz to be the universal healing stone, restoring balance and bringing hope. Moonstone with its ethereal colors lives up to the ancient legends which say this gemstone was formed from moonlight. Moonstone was traditionally believed to be a protective gemstone as well as soothing to the emotions. This exquisite choker with its matching earrings is so icy cool!
