August Moment Necklace
August Moment Necklace • Peridot and Spinel
What it represents:
The little circle on this design reminds me of a clock, or time; and the stone represents a moment, a moment in time. We have these designs with every month’s stone, so you can use them to represent any moments that are special to you. Certain dates hold so much meaning, and I think this will be a beautiful reminder of those moments.
I know for me, the days that my babies were born were the best days of my life & I love to be reminded of the moments that I met them by wearing the stones of the months they were born in. The day I chose to marry my husband is a memory that is so special to me, and I would love to wear one of these to remind me of the moment I chose to spend forever with him. I think of my grandpa whenever it is the anniversary of his passing. I remember all of us cousins spending so much time at my grandparent's house soaking up his funny sweet loving spirit in those days before he passed away. And I think one of these in that month's stone would be a beautiful reminder of those moments with him. Time is always moving forward, things are always changing; but my vision for the Moment jewelry is for it to capture the special moments and remind you of them often.
I also hope you can use these Moments as meaningful gifts. It can be hard to know what to do for a momma who just lost another baby to miscarriage, but hopefully giving her an Angel Baby Moment will be a way for you to say you love her. And I think it is helpful for her to have a physical representation of the memories and moments she has with that baby that she holds close to her heart. A gift you give on graduation day, with that month’s stone, to always remind that young woman of everything she accomplished. A necklace representing the month your friend lost a loved one, or their "heaven birthday" because you know that this time of year will always be tender for them. Gifting yourself the stone of the month you were born in, because you know that YOU matter and every time you wear it you’ll be reminded to practice some self love.
These Moment Necklaces layer beautifully together, so you can build your necklace stack over time. They are adjustable, so you can wear them at the same or different lengths. The circle is smaller than the size of a dime and attached to a 14 inch chain with a 3 inch extender, but it can be clasped to be worn as short as you’d like or up to 17 inches. The high quality chain has soldered links to prevent breaking, can be worn daily and while showering. Everything is lead & nickel free. We made each piece unique from each other, showcasing all the ways that these raw birthstones can vary. And we know that your preferences might vary as much as the raw stones do! So we are going to send you a video of some choices for you to choose from, that way you end up with one you adore! Please refer to the "video choices" section at the bottom of this description for more details.
Many crystals are sorted through to find the prettiest ones. The crystal is then carefully positioned with the prettiest angle facing forward, and put inside of a little hammered circle. The mounting is shaped with a clay, and the piece is then hand painted with conductive paint. The moment circle then goes through a really neat process where pure silver deposits onto the conductive paint and crystal for 15+ hours, rotating and adjusting the pieces every few hours. After tumbling, hand polishing, and either leaving as is in solid silver or plating in the thickest possible layer of nickel-free 18k gold or rose gold, the moment circle is finally complete! The moment circle is then attached to the prettiest, highest quality chain I have found (rose gold filled, gold filled, or solid sterling silver). Chains are hand cut with precise measurements and all the pieces are assembled together. Long story short... a whole lot of time and love is put into this little beauty!
