Garnet Necklace - "Akasha" // MADE TO ORDER
This gothic style garnet necklace is named for the vampire queen, Akasha.
Akasha is a character from Anne Rice's Vampire Chronicles, and is the very first vampire created, dating back 6000 years. She's extremely powerful and is tied to the life source of all vampires in existence. The vampire Lestat drank from Akasha and as a result also became very powerful - he was even able to withstand being in the sun without dying.
Stone: Approximately 11-12mm long freeform shape rosecut Mozambique garnet.
Size: Pendant is approximately 1.3" inches long and comes on an 18" sterling silver satellite bead chain. If you prefer 20" inch, please leave me a note at checkout.
Material: Sterling silver (.925) with fine silver (.999) accents
Misc: Please note this is a limited pre-order. The garnets are freeform in shape and the necklace you receive will be similar to the one pictured, but the stone may vary slightly in shape.
Garnets are one of the oldest known gemstones and is the January birthstone. It was believed that garnets could shield the wearer from harm and warriors would wear garnets into battle as protective talismans. Garnets were also traditionally associated with love, blood, and one's life force - garnet jewelry is perfect for vampires!
This necklace is made to order. Please allow 1-2 weeks for me to make it before shipping.
Your necklace will be lovingly packed in a jewelry gift box inside a sturdy cardboard shipping box. I include an anti-tarnish strip that can be stored with the jewelry to help prevent tarnish as well as a complimentary polishing cloth to keep your jewels in top shape.
Orders over $100 are eligible to ship for free via USPS First Class Mail. Expedited shipping is available (price calculates at checkout). All packages will be insured for the full value. If you have any questions, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
To keep your jewelry looking like new, take that extra second to remove it before cleaning, bathing, swimming, or any activity that would cause excess wear and tear. Avoid exposing your jewelry to perfumes, lotions, soaps and other liquids, as well as extreme heat.
If your jewelry becomes dirty, clean with a soft cloth or soft tooth brush and a mild soap if necessary (I use Dawn), or polish with a silver polishing cloth. Please note that polishing cloths are infused with an abrasive and will remove intentional patina along with the unwanted tarnish, so take care not to accidentally polish off the patina!
Finally, as a best practice, store your jewelry in a cool, dry place with your complimentary anti-tarnish tab.
