About this design:

The colors in these aquamarine stones remind me of serenity and calmness - with colors of pale blue, pale green, medium blue and some almost white. Most are transparent and icy in color. The shortest strand is made of small round aquamarine beads alternating with ovals and sterling silver rings. The second strand is made of square aquamarine beads with round beads and tiny sterling silver seed beads interspersed. The last strand is sterling silver chain with circles alternating with ovals. It closes with a sterling silver lobster clasp. The measurements of the three strands are as follows:

short strand: 17 inches
middle strand: 19 inches
long strand: 21 inches


Aquamarine, Sterling Silver

    This is truly beautiful. I love the way the sterling silver chain echoes the sterling rounds in the smallest layer. And you have captured serenity.
