Beautiful piece of natural surface Rose Quartz set in Sterling Silver and fine Silver.
The gemstones is a soft pink with a rough top. I set in in thick silver and gave it a rough texture to match the stone. The bail is in the shape of a ribbon.
The necklace is about 5/8" wide (17mm) and about 1-1/4" long (30mm) and 1/4" thick (6mm). It comes on a silver chain that can be worn at either 16" or 18". And to keep the pink theme going, there are some pink pearls and a Ruby charm at the end of the chain.
Why I made this piece: I wanted to make a piece that was a little less "pink washed" and more along the lines of fine jewelry that can be worn all the time. This is a perfect piece for someone who is going through or has been through treatment for breast cancer. Or, for a family member who has been impacted by a loved-one fighting cancer. All profits will be donated to the Dr.Susan Love Research Foundation. I found her book indispensable when I was going through treatment.
