A tailor-made birthstone brooch
The new Peas in a Pod Birthstone Brooch would make an excellent customised gift for the important women in your life.
Each birthstone brooch is entirely unique, depending on the months (and therefore gemstones) chosen.
The ‘pea’ is represented by the genuine birthstone(s) (where available) for any member of your family, and the herringbone weave style wrapped wire forms the pod casing to create a beautiful tailor-made bangle.
Wrapped in 100% recycled .935 Argentium Silver wire (more tarnish resistant than Sterling), you can customise the gemstones inside the pea pod with the following real birthstone options:
APRIL: Diamond (Clear SC)
MAY: Emerald (Green SC)
JULY: Ruby (Red SC)
SEPTEMBER: Sapphire (Blue SC)
OCTOBER: Opal (White or Black available)
NOVEMBER: Topaz (Blue/ Yellow SC) or Citrine available
NB Where the real gemstones are not available, I have used coloured Swarovski Crystals (SC) instead.
What makes this customised birthstone brooch so fabulous?
- An elegant and meaningful gift designed and made here in New Zealand
- Lovingly handmade by me, especially for you, in my garden-outlook Titirangi home studio
- The birthstone gems are threaded onto the pin then carefully wrapped in 100% recycled .935 Argentium Silver wire – more tarnish resistant than Sterling and perfect for the eco-conscious
- The pin and catch is hand made from 100% recycled Sterling Silver wire with the hand-formed, sharpened and smoothed pin at one end, and half round catch at the other
- A carefully crafted herringbone weave style is used to wire wrap and encase the birthstones within the ‘pea pod’
- The peas in a pod birthstone brooch measures approximately from 5 – 7cm (1.9-2.8″) in length for 1-4 birthstones and is 1cm (0.4″) wide and high
- Comes lovingly packaged in a special eco gift box
