URCHIN CHARM NECKLACE 18ct Gold Vermeil | Peridot

The sea urchin test (hard outer shell) that was used to create this charm came from southern Africa. The sea urchin has a dubious reputation and is often associated with the painful injuries that can result from stepping on one. However, fossil urchins are considered to be protective amulets and it is for this reason that the sea urchin pendant is now part of the collection.

Gemstone | Peridot

Also known as Olivine, Peridot is the birthstone for August and the national stone of Egypt. It is one of only two gemstones - diamond is the other - that is formed, not in the Earth’s crust, but deeper down in the molten rock of the Upper Mantle and it is brought to the surface by the earthquakes and volcanoes. Peridot is only ever green in colour, so it is ironic that it is thought to help dispel jealousy and resentment! Perhaps because of the dramatic way in which it makes its way to the Earth’s surface, Peridot is thought to be beneficial for those wishing to break away from dependencies or destructive patterns of behaviour

The gold Urchin charm necklace is beautifully presented in Plastic free packaging
