Umba Sapphire Gemstone Necklace in Gold and Rhodolite Garnet, Sky Blue Topaz and Water Sapphire Iolite


Ask a question

Fabulously gorgeous necklace in umba sapphire, rare rhodolite garnet, water sapphire iolite and sky blue topaz. These smooth polished sapphire briolettes measure approximately 8 to 12 mm in size. They exhibit deep red, gray, lavender, pale green and light blue coloring. These colors are unique to umba sapphire and not typical of regular sapphire. These gemstones do not photograph well for me. The color is not well captured here. To me, the gems look more rich and brilliant in evening lighting than daytime lighting, so this would make a gorgeous piece for a night on the town. These are rare gemstones. Two or three of the gemstones have small inclusions on one side or the bottom corner of the stone. I tried to photograph the imperfections in the last four images. They are not distracting, but I am just disclosing this fact because this is a beautiful and more expensive piece. I want the buyer of this piece to love it as much as I do. Compared to other gemstones, these carry a noticeable weight.

Finished in gold vermeil, this necklace measures exactly 17-inches long. A very fancy gold-plated toggle clasp completes the design. (This is my favorite clasp design and the shape reminds me of a lyre.)

Handmade by me in San Francisco, CA, USA.

A Note on Sterling Silver:
Sterling silver, as we all know, tarnish over time. Tarnishing is a natural process by which the silver metal oxidizes, losing its shiny luster and turning dark gray-black in color. There are a few things we can do to stop this process from occurring. I highly recommend storing a small piece of anti-tarnish paper in the bag or box where the sterling silver jewelry is kept. This paper is not known to be harmful to precious metals, such as gold and silver, and protects it from tarnishing. The anti-tarnish paper is usually good for 6 months of use, then it needs to be replaced to provide continuous protection against tarnishing.

A Note on Vermeil:
Vermeil is simply gold-plated sterling silver, and it looks just like gold. Much like sterling silver jewelry, vermeil jewelry can tarnish over time and wear, so it would be wise to care for vermeil jewelry in the same manner as you would care for silver jewelry.

A Note on Jewelry Care:
For most jewelry, washing with soap or chemical cleaners is too abrasive, especially if the pieces contain gemstones. Vermeil and Sterling Silver jewelry do not need to be cleaned with harsh chemicals. Usually, polishing and buffing with a soft cloth is sufficient maintenance to keep it shiny.

If a necklace gets tangled, do not pull it apart with force because that may damage the piece of jewelry. To properly untangle a necklace, just hold it on one end and let it unwind gently.


I have been finding more rare and exclusively beautiful gemstones for my jewelry designs, so the prices for my pieces are increasing as a result of this. Larger gemstones tend to cost more as well.

The price of gold and silver have increased dramatically over the last few years. Because of this, the prices for my pieces have increased as well; however, I do try to maintain reasonable pricing by small incremental changes on select items only when absolutely necessary. I apologize for these fluctuations, but they are inevitable due to economic changes.
