This 925 Sterling Silver pendant is hand carved, solid sterling silver built up at the front to hold deeper carving. The gemstone is genuine rainbow moonstone.
This pendant has to be a thicker silver in order to support the deep incisions of the knife.
Our usual silver is hand rolled through machines that look like a pasta maker but this style can't be because it has to hold shape so instead it goes into a kind of boiling pot separately.
The pendant is now hammered into shape while being careful to keep the thickness. After the shape is correct we start carving, it is very difficult to do as each knife cut has to perfect, no room for error.
We polish pack and it is good to go! We have considered stopping producing these kind of carved items as they are just so time consuming but we also want to preserve the ancient traditional art of sterling silver carving that is so rare these days.
A stone for “new beginnings”, Moonstone is a stone of inner growth and strength. It soothes emotional instability and stress, and stabilizes the emotions, providing calmness. Moonstone enhances intuition, promotes inspiration, success and good fortune in love and business matters.
