DELPHINA: Black Gray and White Trinity Gemstone Choker Necklace
This incredibly versatile black gray and white braided trinity of gemstones will complement casual and dressy outfits. Wear with tee, jeans, and pumps, or accessorize your little black dress! This gemstone choker necklace is designed to protect the wearer from negative energies and stimulate strength and vitality.
Delphina consists of three beaded strands of genuine semiprecious gemstones and fashion beads. One strand features 12 diamond shape blue goldstone pieces (although referred to as “blue goldstone,” these pieces are black) with black fashion beads; another features 12 rounded stones of black onyx mixed with black and silver fashion beads; and a third features beads of hematite stones in sets of 6, accented with synthetic pearls. This trinity of goldstone, onyx, and hematite is brought together to protect and strengthen.
12 stunning, diamond-shape pieces of blue goldstone are interspersed throughout one strand of the braid. Goldstone was first made during the European Renaissance, and is neither gold nor stone. It is made from tiny flecks of copper suspended in colored glass, a process originating from Italian monks who had been practicing alchemy. Blue goldstone is a stone for science and wisdom, and a powerful energy generator. Goldstone stimulates vitality.
Delphina also features 12 stones of natural black onyx. Black onyx is said to possess protective energies that ward off negativity. It is a separating stone that extracts negative energies from you and releases it. This stone enhances self-control and self mastery; it is a grounding stone. Wear it as a talisman for independence, fearlessness, and for protection and strength in new ventures.
Hematite is not a gemstone as many believe, but an iron oxide mineral containing high iron content. The natural and chemical properties of hematite make it a strong grounding and protection stone. Hematite was traditionally known as a bloodstone, and used as an amulet to protect the circulatory system and regulate blood flow. Native American folklore held that hematite made one invincible in battle. This parallels Vedic astrological associations of hematite with the planet Mars, which channels courage, strength, and powerful energies.
The beads and gemstones are set in pods that are multiples of 3, 6, or 9. This is to harness the powers of numerology. In Vedic numerology, the number 3 helps channel creativity and self-expression; 6 represents healing, harmony, and compassion, and 9 for success and prosperity.
Choker necklace measures 15 inches in length and closes by a magnetic drum clasp. Ancient civilizations believed in the healing properties and health benefits of magnets. Magnetism in the clasp is impressively strong, and incorporated into the jewelry design specifically to help in relieving stress, regulate blood circulation, and complement the metaphysical properties of the hematite. Necklace is beaded with black Wildfire beading thread. Wildfire is considered one of the strongest and most durable beading threads on the market. Wildfire thread features thermally bonded coating, is waterproof, and fray resistant.
