Angel Dog Necklace, Red Rutilated Quartz Turquoise Handmade Jewelry

Item Description

What a meaningful remembrance necklace for a woman whose best four-footed friend has walked the Rainbow Bridge.  Jewelry that will be a treasured keepsake, the beautiful, one of a kind PERFECT ANGEL handmade necklace features a two sided pewter angel dog pendant with rare red rutilated quartz, real turquoise and sterling silver.  The unique pendant, an artisan original design, was cast from lead free pewter and has a gorgeous old silver glow about it (something some of the photos don’t show too well).  On the front of the round pendant is a raised angel dog design, a dog with a loving look stares straight on with flopped over ears and a pair of angel wings.  The back side is inscribed with “Perfect Angel.”  The pendant has a wonderfully rustic look to it and is securely connected to the main body of the necklace with two heavy duty sterling silver jump rings. 
Star cut red rutilated quartz and genuine turquoise gemstones perfectly highlighting the sweet angel dog pendant.  Red rutilated quartz is a rather rare gemstone, not something you see often.  The hair-like rutile inclusions and reddish splotches in the quartz is iron oxide - since there is a lot of iron oxide, the rutiles are a reddish color as opposed to the more common black.  As you can see in the photos, some of the stones are darker and some are lighter.  The gemstone shape is a breathtaking star cut, large facets that show off the qualities of the red rutilated quartz and add a wonderful sparkle.  To add a pop of complimentary color, seven small, blue turquoise flat nuggets, along with tiny sterling silver beads, separate the first eight star cut gemstones.  Then a turquoise nugget separates every grouping of 3 quartz along with sterling beads.  A Sleek, shiny sterling silver toggle clasp finishes the lovely necklace,  Carefully designed and handmade by Catherine of Shadow Dog Designs, the PERFECT ANGEL remembrance necklace is a thoughtful jewelry gift for the woman who has lost a faithful four-footed friend and loves wearing one of a kind artisan designs.
***  Please note:  when sold, one half (1/2) of the purchase price of the PERFECT ANGEL necklace will be donated to an animal rescue organization to help care for the four footed souls waiting for their furever home.

Dogs are a symbol of loyalty, friendship and unconditional love.  Pewter is believed to be very grounding, bringing the wearer back to reality.  Red Rutilated Quartz is used as a powerful gemstone to bring new hope to life, said to give the wearer relief from sadness.  Turquoise, a gemstone sacred to the Navajo, Zuni and other Native Americans, is a stone of wholeness, promoting a sense of unity with all that surrounds us; it is believed to bring peace of mind, a soothing energy and healing of the spirit.  Silver is a metal of love and healing; it is a mirror to the soul, helping us to see ourselves as others see us.  

The PERFECT ANGEL artisan necklace was carefully designed and handmade in a dog friendly, smoke free studio.  The necklace will come with two informational drop tags: one with the piece's name; the other lists the materials used in the necklace and the language of the stones and metals. It will be carefully packed in an organza jewelry bag, perfect for gift giving to a loved one . . . or to yourself!
