Abalone and pearl necklace

by Maura Nicholson on Jul.19, 2010, under Handmade Jewelry

Blue abalone shell, wow this pieces is just stunning! the blue is, well so blue with shades of pink and purple. Then you have the darker blue lines and puddles which remind me of the sand at low tide. I thought little white  freshwater pearls would be perfect with this glorious piece of ‘shell artwork’ all mixed up with some shiny silver!

Waves of crystal and aquamarine bracelet

Continuing with the aquamarine jewelry care tips, here we go:

  • Aquamarine fades with prolonged exposure to light, so that should be avoided as much as possible and it should be stored away from sunlight.
  • It has very good hardness and is durable enough, but still can develop internal cracks if knocked hard. Larger gemstone Jewelry should be worn with care.
  • It needs to be cleaned regularly, to retain its brilliance. It can loose luster, with deposits of dirt and oil on surface.
  • You can use normal soapy water to clean it and dry it with a soft clean cloth. Use of hash chemicals and ultrasonic cleaning should be avoided.
  • Extreme temperature can cause damage to jewelry, so it should be stored in a cool dry place.

Thats all from this series on Aquamarine, we would be coming up with a new stone soon for next month. You can email us your suggestions to, if you want any gemstone to be chosen in particular. Till then, keep rocking!
