Rebekah's Sapphires

Rebekah came into the studio last week wearing this necklace that her husband gave her for an anniversary gift many years ago. It sparked a conversation about the splendor of Sapphires - both of these pieces below being great examples of the natural, saturated palette found in precious stones. The necklace is woven with 18k loops connecting earthy oranges, greens & yellows. These are high quality gems that hold the light while having a stunning transparency. The bracelet (another gift) has 14k beads offsetting the deep blue hues exaggerated by the fade from dark to light. These are (technically) lower quality sapphires as they're opaque, but the richness they offer alongside the gold are nothing short of stunning.
