Turquoise Mom and Yellow Aragonite Mothers Day Gemstone Necklace Set
This heartfelt "MOM" necklace of turquoise and yellow calcite is something a mother can wear anytime of the year. Perfect gift for Mother's Day. The heart shaped pendant of antique brass has been engraved with the word MOM with spirals and raised dots. The antique brass has been washed with a turquoise verdigris which has filled in the etched areas. Then the pendant has been rubbed to remove some of the verdigris coloring to allow the antique brass to peer through. This creates a beautifully aged effect. The pendant has been attached to an antique brass royal pendant bail from TierraCast. TierraCast produces it's products in the United States. For the necklace I found these wonderful chalk turquoise nuggets which match the verdigris finish. Chalk turquoise is real turquoise that is very soft. The stone is ground up and then stabilized with color added to produce these pretty blue nuggets. I paired the turquoise nuggets with pale yellow aragonite stones. Aragonite is a carbonate mineral, one of the two most common, naturally occurring, crystal forms of calcium carbonate, CaCO₃. It is formed by biological and physical processes, including precipitation from marine and freshwater environments. In between the turquoise and aragonite stones I added antique brass metal double spacers, dotted roundels and smooth brass beads. The necklace is finished off with Russian gold twisted tornado crimps from Via Murano here in the United States. Wire guardians are used to protect the beading wire from wear. A TierraCast antique lobster claw clasp was selected for the closure. The stones are strung on .024 Soft Flex antique brass professional beading wire which is also produced and sold here in the United States.
The length of the necklace is 19 inches or 48.26 centimeters. The pendant will drop an additional 2 inches or 5 centimeters. I have added a figaro antique brass extender chain which will add another 1.5 inches or 3.8 centimeters.
As an added bonus, I will include a matching pair of earrings at no additional cost. The earrings will contain the Turquoise nuggets, aragonite stones and connect to antique brass hypoallergenic leverbacks. What a great way to complete the set!
Aragonite is said to increase energy, boost self-confidence and feelings of self-worth as you learn to place trust in yourself. A wonderful stone for parents and people in tense relationships that test the nerves, aragonite relieves stress, emotional fatigue and anger, bringing patience when it is needed most!
To keep your jewelry clean you can wipe your stones with a soft cloth, or you can use a damp cloth when needed. I strongly advise against immersing your jewelry in water. Never use harsh abrasives or cleaners, including chlorine, on your stones. Keep chemicals such as perfume, lotions and make-up away from your jewelry. Apply cosmetics first, then put your jewelry on. Store your necklace away from other jewelry to avoid banging and possible scratching of your stones. Most of all, enjoy your jewelry!
