Faceted brown andalusite and lavender iolite semiprecious gemstone rondelles were wire wrapped onto handmade chain links to create the front part of this necklace. The necklace is finished with lengths of figure 8 chain and a lobster claw clasp, and is adjustable from 16"-18". All metal components are sterling silver.


Iolite has also been called "water-sapphire" and "Vikings' compass" because of its usefulness in determining the direction of the sun on overcast days, the Vikings having used it for this purpose. Andalusite is named after Andalusia, the province of Spain where it was first discovered. Andalusite and iolite are pleochroic, i.e. showing different colors in different directions.

Frequently asked questions about CoralReefDreams

I would be happy to make something just for you! I do require payment up front for custom work. You will receive a photo of the finished piece before it is mailed in case there are any small adjustments that need to be made.
It is best to remove all jewelry before putting on or taking off clothing, that seems to be the most frequent cause of breakage. Avoid bending wire jewelry as it will eventually cause breakage. Also, delicate pieces are not intended for playing sports or continuous wear. Wear them to the office, out to dinner and on special occasions and they will last for many years. Sterling silver can either be allowed to darken naturally, or kept shiny using a cleaning method that is safe for any pearls or stones included in the piece. Tarnish is the result of exposure to air and moisture. It is best to store your piece in a sealed container such as a zip lock bag, and if it has any colored stones, away from strong light to avoid fading.
All purchases are shipped packaged in a reusable organza gift bag. Fragile pieces will come in a gift box (not gift wrapped). You can request a gift box if you prefer it over the organza bag, just include a note when you check out. I ship all orders in padded bubble envelopes to ensure safe arrival.
