The Astrid Nomadic Necklace is 17.5" long. The name Astrid is a Scandinavian name. In Scandinavian the meaning of the name Astrid is: Godly strength. Derived from Germanic compounds meaning divine strength, or divine beauty. Astrid has been used by Norway's royal families for hundreds of years. Modern, cottage chic design in a neutral and soothing color palette with AAA grade, natural, untreated, conflict-free gemstones.
Shown with the Daphne flutter slide earrings (see on website, sold separately), worn together they make a perfect set!
bohemian meets tribal warrior appeal
This design beams with:
• Pyrite quartz raw, rare, gemstone pendant
• Paddle charms; hand pounded from 14k gold fill
• Pyrite micro-faceted, diamond-cut beads
• Black Spinal micro-faceted diamond-cut beads
• Strawberry, Rose Quartz micro-faceted AAA grade beads
• Round 14k, sand-blasted micro beads
• Wood Patikan, natural beads from the Philippines
• Gold filled, lobster clasp and jump rings.
• Authenticated with a BINC, circular, hand-stamped 14k real gold paillette.
The centerpiece is rare, raw pyrite! I literally fell in LOVE with this strand of stones. Every once and a while I just have to commit to a special strand no matter the cost. They are so natural and beautiful with glimmers of golden pyrite within the milky quartz inclusions. This show stopper was then combined with magical AAA grade stones in micro faceted; black spinal, strawberry rose quartz (with inclusions), 14k gold, micro rounds and hand-pounded paddle beads and patikan, natural wood prayer beads. A tribal, badass beauty.
The Astrid contains incredibly vibrant gems; shiny and polished and others classic, weathered and rutty from time bathed in rich jeweled tones colored from the earth. I've incorporated the seductively hued stones with beads of the finest variety. The beads are carefully chosen for their antiquity and craftsmanship of their makers. Please note minor flaws or imperfections may appear within these handcrafted beads or inclusions within the natural, raw gems. It's one aspect of their inherent beauty.
