PRINCESSMENA: Pink Crystals and Moonstone Necklace
Princessmena is a 5-tiered beaded necklace featuring pink Austrian crystals and moonstone. The crystals and moonstone are accented with antique style brown-toned beads, synthetic pearls, and synthetic matte amber. The necklace closes with a magnetic drum clasp, making it easy to take on and off, or loop around your wrist for a bracelet; yet the magnetism is strong enough that the piece will remain secure.
17 genuine pink Austrian crystals give this necklace a soft, feminine sparkle. The number 17 is significant in the Book of Genesis, and holds meaning to many cultures and societies. In the Princessmena necklace, 17 symbolizes a coming of age.
This is a youthful necklace and expresses the innocence and sweetness of its wearer. The combination of pink crystals, moonstone, light lavendar cat's eye beads, and pearls (synthetic) render this piece ultra-feminine; yet the antique style brown-tone beadwork and accents of bronze (synthetic) and matte amber (synthetic) give the aesthetics a balance, making it a very wearable necklace, conveying a down-to-earth femininity.
The beadwork appears in pods of 3, 6, or 9, or mulitples of 3, 6, or 9. The number 3 intensifies intuition and expression; 6 harmony and love; and 9 accomplishment and longevity.
Princessmena features 54 beads of genuine moonstone, 54 specifically to synthesize the properties of the numbers 3, 6, and 9 with the properties of the moonstone. Moonstone is thought to carry with it lunar energies that help ease stress and anxiety. White moonstone specifically helps with spiritual growth. While hematite stones facilitate emotional and physical strength, moonstone is for spiritual strength. Moonstone is also considered a traveler's stone, because it protects its wearer through travels and new ventures.
A princess is a hereditary head of state, a girl who has to come into her own yet, but may one day become a queen or empress. The Princessmena necklace is for a young wearer who is poised to some day reach great potential. The name "Mena" means goddess in Eastern cultures, and in Western linguistical roots, means love. The Princessmena necklace highlights the purity, the royalty, the kindness, and the great elegance of a young woman, who is nonetheless still humble and down-to-earth.
