This L double sided sterling silver necklace is set with Connemara Green Marble from my families quarry and Aventurine glass. Every piece of marble is as unique as a fingerprint. This is why we insure that the necklace you see in this image is the one you will receive. Each piece of marble is hand selected, in fact I always pick a misty day to select the marble for our jewellery. This is because the best stones shine brightest in the wet before they are polished. The marble we choose has taken mother nature almost 500 million years to perfect, so we make sure to take our time to select only the best for you.
Each stone is unique, just like the landscape it has come from
All our jewellery is delivered in a specially made tin to keep it safe. It comes wrapped in 100% Irish tweed woven by Kerry Woolen Mills.
Connemara Marble is referred to as Irelands gemstone and wearing it insures you will literally carry a piece of Ireland with you
Aventurine glass also known as Goldstone, was invented in seventeenth-century Venice by the Miotti family. The name aventurine glass, is based on the original Italian name avventurina from "adventure" or “chance". In Persia It is called “del-roba" which means “Charming”. Aventurine is a type of glittering glass made in a low-oxygen reducing atmosphere. These stunning gems are reminiscent of a starry night. The technical term for this optical phenomenon, “aventurescence", is also derived from the same source.
