amethyst and aquamarine necklace

Indian faceted amethysts and an aquamarine nugget make this pastel necklet.

The stones were sourced in India in a back street market in Jaipur I think. Me in salwar kameez haggling badly with a master craftsman in a turban until after endless cups of tea and chats about my then single status I finally left clutching a bag of hard-won treasures. You really don't find this sort of stuff on ebay...

The necklet length is approx 43cm in length - just the thing to circle a graceful neck.

It's made it onto the website here.
