Breckenridge Snowflake Topaz, Tanzanite, Amethyst & Sapphire Sterling Silver Pendant
This is an intricate snowflake design featuring a Swiss blue topaz in the center that is surrounded by 6 lovely little blue/violet tanzanites, which are then surrounded by 12 sky blue topaz and amethysts. Finally, 18 tiny amethyst and blue sapphire accents are throughout this dazzling piece.
So many gems sparkle in this pendant that measures 1" across. There's a lot packed into this show stopper!
Amethyst is a favorite gem for it all its purple shades and hues. Did you know that the name amethyst comes from the Greek word for "not intoxicate"? Wearing amethyst jewelry is said to protect one from drunkenness. Maybe that's the reason we love this gem!
We named this piece after Breckenridge. Over the years this little mining town with a killer mountain has grown up and is not such a hidden gem anymore; however, the 18 tiny amethyst and blue sapphire accents are there for those that remember it well from back in the day. The incredibly brilliant Swiss blue topaz in the center shines like the heart of this mountain community.
Each piece in our Snowflake Line is unique just like the cold flakes that fall from the sky. We let each gem speak to us in how they should be arranged. We let the colors and gemstones tell the story. We did not set out intending to make pendants that resemble snowflakes; however, in trusting the gems to arrange themselves, they naturally did so in a hexagonal structure, just like real snowflakes in winter.
Just like each snowflake is unique, so is each human being. No two are the same. We know there is one that is just right for you!
I am losing precious days. I am degenerating into a machine for making money. I am learning nothing in this trivial world of men. I must break away and get out into the mountains to learn the news
