Marinella necklace of fine blue Amazonite beads (12mm) interspersed with smoky quartz spacers and 3 x 9ct yellow gold Teatro Massimo necklace spacers, featuring a 9ct yellow gold Lowe Clasp. Marinella is a town on the coast of Sicily near to Selinunte (the ancient Greek city with the famous temple of Hera). The design on the spacers comes from a detail inside the Royal Box in Teatro Massimo, Palermo, Sicily. From the Journey to Sicily.
The necklace measures approximately 16'' in length.
Like the deep waters of the Amazon river, Amazonite holds captivating shades of turquoise green. A feldspar mineral that forms in tabular crystal structures, usually cut as cabochon due to its fragile nature. It has a vitreous lustre, its colour sometimes revealing spider web like details.
This colourful gemstone is often cut as beads and looks wonderful juxtaposed with lapis and gold.
All Cassandra Goad Jewellery is designed and made in our workshops in London.
