Background Story
Since the 1930s, pansy jewelry has been sought for its symbolism of a beloved person who occupies our thoughts. Translated into enamels, porcelains and metals, my favorite is the Art Deco era's take on this flower - a blended palette of pave stones. Our pendant is sculptured like the petals of the flower, set with shades of purple, tanzanite color and mint crystal with outer petals a wave of amethyst color crystal pears. Translucent light amethyst color crystal beads and satiny mauve glass pearls form a chain that appears to float around your neck.

About Purple
Often a symbol of royalty, purple combines the stability of blue and the energy of red. It symbolizes power, nobility, luxury, and ambition. It conveys wealth and extravagance. Purple is associated with wisdom, dignity, independence, creativity, mystery, and magic. While light purple evokes romantic and nostalgic feelings, dark purple can evoke gloom and sadness. The middle-tone purple hue of this ring is the perfect balance for a piece you'll love to wear for years to come.

Created or simulated gemstones:

How are created or simulated gemstones different from natural gemstones? Natural gems are created by the forces of nature and must be discovered, usually by digging in the ground or sifting through a riverbed. When these stones are created in a laboratory, they are called created, simulated or synthetic gemstones.

The purpose of creating gemstones in a laboratory isn’t necessarily to reduce the cost, but also to produce larger, more perfectly consistent stones. Created or simulated gems can be made of any material. Synthetic gems, however, share virtually all chemical, optical and physical characteristics of their natural mineral counterparts.

Austrian crystals: These are known for their excellent reflective quality and prismatic brilliance. This man-made crystal is created using natural minerals and quartz sand, which are then heated and slowly cooled using a process similar to that of creating hand-blown glass. This process creates an end product that can be fashioned into a beautiful crystal.

A special machine is used to create a highly faceted crystal. The crystals are cut in various directions, which allows for excellent light refraction, exceptional brilliance and unsurpassed color quality at an affordable price.

Today Swarovski® is one of the largest suppliers of high-end crystals. In the late 1800s, Daniel Swarovski invented a machine to cut crystal with extreme precision. He patented his technique and to this day, only select Swarovski family members and employees have unrestricted access to the production facility that creates these crystals. They are used to decorate everything from stilettos and sculptures, to chandeliers, jewelry and clothing.
