This adorable little ship started out as a kind suggestion from one of my customers many months ago. I loved the idea of making retro-style rockets out of sterling silver and gemstones, and finally this little guy is ready to sell. I hope to make more of these eventually as well.

This is a small, refined rocket ship pendant suspended on a fine sterling silver chain. It's 35mm from nose to tail, 17mm high at the fins, and the stones are 4mm across. The chain is 19" or 48cm long. Signed and dated on the back by the artist (me!).

The stones are genuine Sleeping Beauty turquoise and Orissa garnet.

MEET YOUR GEMSTONE: GARNET

Most people think of garnet as an inexpensive, reddish stone – but in fact, garnet comes in many varieties and colors. From common red almandine garnet to the rare and expensive emerald green tsavorite garnet, this stone has some hidden depths. Orissa garnets are a pretty light red with no pink undertones - very lovely!

Treatments and enhancements: None

Birthstone stats: Garnet is the traditional birthstone for January, and is the second anniversary gemstone.

Mohs hardness: 7.0 – 7.5

Care and feeding of your gemstone: Clean in warm, soapy water or with a mild jewelry cleaning solution such as Hagerty Silversmiths’ Wash. Don’t steam clean; doing so could cause damage. It is typically safe to place garnets in an ultrasonic cleaner; check with your local jeweler for advice.
