Summer Solstice - Sunstone Labradorite and Moonstone Wire Wrapped Sterling Silver Necklace

$95.00+

Only 1 available



This necklace is a continuation of my celestial trios series along with "The Equinox", "Dark Side of the Moon", "Twilight", and "Solar/Lunar Eclipse". It features three beautiful smooth briolettes wire wrapped in sterling silver featuring my signature twisted bail.

Dimensions:

Sunstone: not smaller than 17 mm (rather hard to find in this size!), smooth finish
Labradorite: about 12 mm, smooth finish
Moonstone: about 7 mm, smooth finish

All the sterling silver elements have been oxidized and polished to bring out the texture and antiqued look. It is also available in bright silver finish - just mention your preference in "Notes to the Buyer" at the checkout. The design comes with your choice of hand forged clasp or spring ring clasp.

"The summer solstice occurs when the tilt of a planet's semi-axis, in either the northern or the southern hemisphere, is most inclined toward the star (sun) that it orbits. Earth's maximum axial tilt toward the sun is 23° 26'. This happens twice each year, at which times the sun reaches its highest position in the sky as seen from the north or the south pole.

The summer solstice occurs during a hemisphere's summer. This is the northern solstice in the northern hemisphere and the southern solstice in the southern hemisphere. Depending on the shift of the calendar, the summer solstice occurs some time between June 20 and June 22 in the northern hemisphere and between December 20 and December 23 each year in the southern hemisphere.

When on a geographic pole, the sun reaches its greatest height, the moment of solstice, it can be noon only along that longitude which at that moment lies in the direction of the sun from the pole. For other longitudes, it is not noon. Noon has either passed or has yet to come. Hence the notion of a solstice day is useful. The term is colloquially used like midsummer to refer to the day on which solstice occurs. The summer solstice day has the longest period of daylight – except in the polar regions, where daylight is continuous, from a few days to six months around the summer solstice.

Worldwide, interpretation of the event has varied among cultures, but most recognize the event in some way with holidays, festivals, and rituals around that time with themes of religion or fertility.[5]

Solstice is derived from the Latin words sol (sun) and sistere (to stand still)." (Wikipedia)

This design is made to order.
The shading of the stones - the way they reflect the light - and wire wrapping around it will be slightly different than the picture.
This makes every necklace truly unique and I make sure that it is as beautiful.
