Snow Princess - Modern Simplicity - Huge faceted Rock Crystal Quartz Necklace

Just a note: This big rock is clear; the green/aqua you're seeing in it is some of the facets picking up the colors of the studio walls. :)

The size of this stone defies description. It is huge and showy, yet simple in its design, so that it defines elegant, Modern simplicity. It would be well at home with red velvet. It would be equally at home, and slightly surprising (which I like!) with jeans, a white t-shirt, boots and a leather jacket.

The lovely stone hangs from an sparkling Italian sterling silver Giotto Chain, with each round ring being 3.5 mm in diameter. It's about 18" long (as you know, I'm willing to make it larger, if needed, though this is pricey chain, so it will be an extra $1.25 for each extra inch), and the pendant width is a fantastic 2" from side to side. The exact measurements are 38x28x18mm (25mm = 1 inch). It is finished off at the end with a sterling silver sweetheart toggle and a smooth, tiny 10x5mm Vintage Czech glass teardrop wrapped in silver wire. This beautiful piece of quartz crystal has, as they often do, some lovely little inclusions and areas that show it's actually rock, and not a piece of glass. They're very small, though. Some, like me, love inclusions, others do not, so I figured I'd let you know they're there, and you can see them here and there when you expand the photos to their full size.

Your jewelry will arrive in a glossy black box with an Adorn Me jewelry label outside and a folded burgundy-colored note inside, written in silver metallic ink on nice card stock. If your purchase is a gift for someone, you can send us a Conversation and tell us what you would like hand-written on the card. This is then boxed and wrapped up in a sparkly silver ribbon, all ready for gift-giving! If you prefer we can leave the ribbon untied, so you can peek inside to see the gift you're giving and then tie the ribbon yourself, just message us with the info.

You can see more, and larger, photos of this necklace by going to Adorn Me jewelry's store at Etsy.

You've done it again! I don't know how you find the time! The pieces are simply beautiful! I would love to be able to take fantastic pictures like that. People will absolutely fall in love!

Thank you, Cindy. :) I find the time because I don't have to jet all over, like you do. I'm not sure how you get anything made with the hours you must put in. My camera helps, because it's got a great macro, but even then, sometimes the camera just can't even capture the beauty of something -- like that rock. It's one of those things that looks best in person, you know?

Hi Lissa. :) Thank you so much! I had to get a new camera, as the one I had before was making my jewelry look worse. Not a good way to get sales! This one is fantastic! Has a great macro, which is really what we need for detail in jewelry, stones, beads, etc. The problem now with THIS one, is it also catches every speck of dust! LOL! Never satisfied. :)

I love your Rock Crystal Quartz Necklace a lot! It's also because I'm into healing with crystals and and the crystal quartz is fantastic for that. Imagine you wear it on your body! It has such a good balancing energy!

Thank you, Iris. I love quartz for that, too. A friend came over the other day who is into Shamanism and Reiki and did a treatment on me. One of the crystals she used was a large rose quartz. I don't know if it really works or not, but I don't see how it could possible hurt! Found out what some of my totem aminals are, too. :)

Crystals are very old and carry in some way all the old wisdom of mother earth! There can be nothing wrong! It's always good to be surrounded or touched by stones and crystals!
