What Do You Mean - "Assorted"?

This page is reserved for the jewelry that doesn't quite fit into the categories on the other pages, either because different materials such as shell, wood, or glass are used or because they are neither earrings nor necklaces.

Goldstone Jewelry

Goldstone is a man-made substance like "cherry quartz" and "aqua aura",but there seems to be more confusion about it than about the rest, possibly because it was first created in Italy during the Renaissance. I remember noticing my grandmother's goldstone jewelry back in the 1950s. A gemologist I once knew told me that a customer had argued with him about it and said that she knew it was a natural stone because she had seen the mine!

I like the original coppery colored goldstone and have never seen the green or purple variety although I've read that they exist, but my favorite is the blue goldstone because it reminds me of a midnight sky full of stars.

Blue Goldstone Necklace and Earrings

Sparkling blue golstone and an elaborate sterling silver adjustable clasp with cast silver leaves make this a very special piece of jewelry. The oval bead matching earrings even have tiny silver leaves on their sterling siver French hook findings. I am pricing this as a set but, as always, would be happy to sell either separately. Just send us an email or give us a call and we'll arrange it.

Shell "Collar" Necklace

This is the much larger array of tapered strips generally called "collars" rather than the 13 piece "fans". In this case the material is also shell rather than stone. When I purchased this years ago at a trade show it was marketed as "Paua shell" but I thought it looked exactly like abalone shell. Sure enough, when I did a little research I found that they are indeed one and the same. The only difference is whether it originated here or in New Zealand as the word abalone is derived from Spanish and paua comes from the Maori language. Treat yourself or someone you love to this gorgeous necklace!

Bracelets With Magnetic Clasps

Have you ever struggled with a regular clasp when trying to put on a bracelet? Those little spring clasps can be buggers in the best of circumstances, but trying to do it one-handed really makes it a challange. Why not make your life (or someone else's) easier with one of our magnetic clasp bracelets? All you need to do is to move the ends of the clasps toward each other and they will close themselves. One word of warning though, despite being small these are very strong magnets and are NOT to be used by anyone with a pacemaker!

Since there is no stretch in these bracelets it is important to know what size is needed. We are showing three sizes of freshwater pearl and gold-filled bracelets, 6 inch, 6 1/2 inch, and 7 inch. Sizes are approximate. I do the best I can to hit the desired length but pattern and materials may make it a smidge over or under. The glass bead bracelet shown worked out to 6 1/2 inches. We plan to add new designs and as always would be happy to customize your bracelet design to your specifications.

Double Woven pearl and gold-filled bracelet

Because this style of bracelet requires much more work, time, and materials than the simpler ones shown above, I will make these to order only. They are available in either white or pale pink freshwater pearls with gold-filled beads and a gold-filled magnetic clasp as described above. Please remember to measure your wrist (or, if it is a gift, obtain an accurate measurement of the recipient's wrist) before ordering. Please call 508 864 5079 during business hours, email us at emm@silverandstone.com or use our order form. The price will be $25.00 if shipped or $20.00 if picked up.

I have posted a story about the first of this type of bracelet that I sold years ago on our sister site Greenbriar Gifts that you might find amusing.
