SPECIAL JEWEL: Please be mindful, this jewel is limited edition and therefore irreplaceable. For this reason we strongly advise Express Shipping, which will require a signature upon delivery, assuring it arrives safely in your hands. 

These pieces are limited based on the small amount of crystal spheres we were able to source. We do not know if/when they will be available again in the future. 

 

Based on the image of the 'Ball and Claw' used throughout Victorian era furniture design, this is a reimagined take on our beloved 'The Messenger' necklace. The design's roots historically come from ancient China: in myth, the Emperor's Dragon guarded a pearl or a crystal ball that was considered to be a symbol of wisdom and purity. 

As a "Message," clear quartz is a particualrly potent crystal, thought to be a 'memory keeper' that enables recall of lost memories. It also amplifies spirtual pursuits and increases psychic awareness. The crystal ball shape has long been a symbol of divination and magic.

Each starling claw is life-cast in sterling silver & hand oxidized to achieve a rich shade of gloomy gray. Hand polished, the finish reveals the intricate details of the claw, capturing the wrinkles, folds and textures of the real thing. The claw grasps a small clear quartz sphere. 

 

Details:

- Claw measures approximately 35mm in length

- Total length is 3.4 inches from base of earring hook 

- Claw, bar links, jump rings, and earring hook are all Sterling Silver

- Sphere is approximately 14mm in diameter

 

PLEASE NOTE: These spheres were sourced by hand, in person, so each has been selected for its quality. These spheres are hand cut and do range in size, color, and clarity. Please expect inclusions and various levels of clarity. Because they are limited, we can not accept any size / color / clarity preferences. 

 

Clear Quartz: 

Despite its ubiquitous accessibility within the crystal kingdom, clear quartz remains one of the most potent crystals one can own, considered to be the 'Master Healer' as it can be used to assist you with any issue. Thought to be a 'memory/record keeper' that enables recall of lost memories, it also helps amplifies spiritual pursuits and increases psychic awareness. The spherical shape, akin to the traditional 'crystal ball,'  has long been a symbol of divination and magic.

These stones are hand cut and therefore may have very slight differences in size and may have small signs of the carver's hands along the edges. These are not fabricated by a machine, they are made by hand and therefore aren't uniformly perfect. The photographs accurately portray the quality of the stones and the cuts.
