9CT GOLD ROUND CHECKERBOARD CUT MOONSTONE, LABRADORITE & PRASIOLITE STATION  NECKLACE

Behold, the solid Yellow Gold Moonstone, Labradorite and Prasiolite necklace, a piece that channels antique charm and flaunts multiple beautiful gemstones with a checkerboard cut that's all sorts of mesmerising. Handmade from scratch to finish, this necklace sits gracefully on a dainty 9ct Yellow Gold chain, in a choice of 18 or 26 inches in length. Little faceted Gold balls are interspersed with gorgeous natural gemstones. It's the kind of necklace that'll make your heart skip a beat, perfect for gifting someone special, or yourself – because you're worth it, darling! 

You've got options here, loves. There are pairs of matching stud or drop earrings and even a bracelet and pendant necklace waiting in the wings. And if you fancy a different gemstone vibe, I've got Amethyst, Blue Topaz, Moonstone and Labradorite in the same design.

Since 2008, I've witnessed a station necklace resurgence, thanks to the growing love affair with layered necklaces. Today, the station necklace is hotter than ever. It's not just an accessory; it's a bold fashion statement in its own right, often seen as the centrepiece of layered necklaces.

Every piece of this treasure trove ships in a branded gift box, just waiting to delight its destined wearer.

Let's dive into the fascinating world of gemstones, where cutting Moonstones is all about that high-domed cabochon style to really make that adularescence pop. When it comes to faceting, only the crème de la crème gets that treatment. And when you see a four-legged star in Moonstone, know that you've stumbled upon a rare beauty. Now, here's a little tidbit: if you spot a reddish hue, you can bet that sneaky goethite (yup, iron oxide) inclusions are behind it.

And then, there's Labradorite, the gem with a legendary story that'll give you chills. Picture this: aeons ago, the Northern Lights decided to take a nosedive from the sky, and some got trapped inside rocks near Labrador. An Inuit warrior, full of courage and curiosity, tried to set them free. He kept striking those rocks with his trusty spear, but a few lights refused to budge. Legend has it that those stubborn ones still reside within the stunning Labradorite stones. So, next time you wear a piece of Labradorite, imagine you've got a bit of the Northern Lights right there with you. It's a dreamy thought, isn't it?

Now, let's talk about Green Quartz. Sometimes folks mix it up and call it green Amethyst, but the correct name is Prasiolite. You might also hear it go by Vermarine, greened Amethyst, or lime Citrine. Natural Prasiolite has this super light, almost see-through green vibe. If you're looking at a deeper green, chances are it's had a little artificial TLC.

 

Now let's get a bit artsy with it. Picture a chessboard, slightly rotated so one corner rests on a table, making those black and white squares more diamond-shaped. This cutting style is all about turning your gem into a little Christmas tree, with facets lighting up like twinkling holiday lights. They call it scintillation, and it's as captivating as it sounds.
