Story: I made the Sapphire Rose Pendant because I love making roses, Also, the Sapphire in the center petal adds sparkle. It is small and can be worn all the time comfortably because the rose is set on a triangle base. Each petal is made individually and then added to create the rose.
Materials: This lovely pendant was made with Fine Silver Metal Clay. A dark blue 2mm Sapphire sits in the middle of the rose. It hangs on an 18″ Sterling Silver Box Chain.
Measurement: The pendant measures 1/2 ” x 3/8″ in a triangle shape.
Care: You can wash it with warm water and mild soap. Rinse with warm water and dry with a clean, soft towel. Keep the sparkle with your jewelry cloth.
Rose: The rose is one of the most famous and beloved of all flowers. William Shakespeare once wrote “What’s in a name? That which we call a rose by any other name would smell as sweet.” Roses are revered today as they have been for centuries. Historical evidence shows that they were grown in China about 5,000 years ago, and they have continued to play a part in history ever since. in addition to being one of the most popular flowers commercialized and grown today, rose tattoos on women and men are an expression of timeless beauty.
The beauty of the rose expresses promise, new beginnings, and hope. The rose itself means anything from “I love you” to “I value your friendship, to “congratulations”. Since this rose is made of Fine Silver, it’s much like a White Rose which stands for purity and grace. All roses, however, symbolize God’s love at work in the world.
Sapphires: The Blue Sapphire is a gemstone associated with royalty. It is good for attracting abundance, blessings, and gifts. Also, it protects against negative energies, calms the mind, strengthens intuition, and invites spiritual clarity.
In astrology, Virgo is the sixth sign of the zodiac, representing August 23rd to September 22nd, and Sapphire is the gemstone.
