Venus Anadyomene Aquamarine Vanity Necklace

A delicate drop of aquamarine bubbles and foams with the oceanic hues that make up Theodore Chasseriau's "Venus of the Sea." The goddess and her oceanic connection are evoked in this small pendant, from her golden tendrils found in the one-of-a-kind necklace's 14k gold prongs to the sea's waves shown in the beryl's hues and facets.

3.8ct aquamarine Vanity necklace. Available in bright sterling silver with 14k gold. Approximately 10x16mm. 18" chain with lobster clasp.

About the gemstone

An HBJ studio favorite for its oceanic hues and unique inclusions, some believed that aquamarines were the treasure of mermaids and we’re inclined to think so too. Aquamarines were named for the Latin word for seawater by a 1500s stonecutter. Traces of iron within aquamarines cause their pelagic colors; the more intense shade of blue, the more valuable the aquamarine.  
MOHs Hardness: 7.5-8 
Origins: Primarily mined in Brazil and parts of Africa.
Care: Although aquamarines are sturdy they are not invincible and can break: avoid dropping them onto hard surfaces. To clean your aquamarine jewelry, soak in warm, soapy water and remove any dirt with a toothbrush or the like. 
Healing Properties: Aquamarines are considered to be cooling and soothing, as well as enhancing clear communication.
Anniversary: 19th


The Story of Vanity

Celebrating the often discouraged act of adorning oneself, the Vanity collection combines glamour with grit, and naturalistic curiosities with industrial elements. Growing up in a world that said a desire to be beautiful was vain, Hannah learned through time and her artwork that connecting to beauty is an ultimate form of empowerment. The one-of-a-kind and limited edition pieces of the Vanity collection incorporate Hannah’s love of atypical gemstones and prong settings. The gemstones found in Vanity are hand-selected for their obvious beauty, but more often for what makes them more obscure: vibrancy in unexpected hues, garish silhouettes, and striking inclusions that deem them traditionally flawed. But it is through their perfect imperfections that Hannah is given a canvas to celebrate her love of making, design, beauty, and unbridled creativity. Contrasting delicacy with severity and subtlety with singularity, the Vanity collection is a love story to femininity and ardent self-love. Shop the full Vanity Collection
