The March birthstone is an aquamarine and the round Amazonite beads surrounding the Cloisonné fish pendant in this necklace capture the color beautifully. The Amazonite is accented with Swarovski crystals, glass seed beads, and tiny round sterling silver spacers. The 17.25" necklace is finished with a sterling silver hook and eye clasp.
Amazonite is associated with money, luck, and overall success. It's known as the "gambler's stone," encouraging good luck and fortune. Amazonite is said to have a soothing effect on the nervous system.
Cloisonné (French pronunciation: [klwazɔne]) is an ancient technique for decorating metalwork objects with colored material held in place or separated by metal strips or wire. In this case, the double-sided fish pendant has brightly colored enamel separated by strips of flattened wire placed edgeways on a metal backing.
