Jane Tipton Designs - "Jewelry for the Everyday Goddess"
Amulet Necklaces 
 
These are my perennial passion, and my signature work over the years.  Most of these necklaces feature vintage amulets from India with traditional Hindu goddesses and gods.  In Hindu art, you can see the importance of amulets, because even the deities are depicted wearing amulets themselves.  All of these are silver, even if the lighting makes them look a bit golden.  Each has its own personality and is one-of-a-kind, which I really love about them.  A small "pedigree paper" is included with each one, so that you will know where your piece is from, what it means, and what gemstones it is paired with.  You'll be a woman "in the know." 
 
Please note there are six pages of Amulet Necklaces. 
I hope you decide to explore them all.

 



Rutilated Quartz Bhumiya Raj Hero Amulet Necklace - NEW
Rutilated Quartz Bhumiya Raj Hero Amulet Necklace - NEW
This amulet can't help but be romantic. The Bhumiya Raj Hero (for protection of home and family) is depicted here with his wife atop their horse. The variety of colors in the 179 carats of faceted rutilated quartz make me think of warm Indian spices like cinnamon and cardamom. There's even a few greenish stones -- those must be fresh herbs. ;-) We certainly have the recipe for an attractive, one-of-a-kind conversation piece. Tiny hematite beads and Balinese silver accents are used throughout, and there is a delightful charm by the toggle clasp. Matching earrings are available below, or on page 1 of the Earrings section. 20" long. (#N461, 10/29) $275
Necklace only  $275

Necklace AND matching earrings  $330







Pink Opal Goddess Necklace
Pink Opal Goddess Necklace
These rose colored pink opals just seemed to ask to be combined with this pretty vintage goddess amulet from India. Though don't let her elegant dress and crown fool you, she is still a protective spirit with her trident in one hand, and what looks to be a sword in the other. (Looking good AND doing good.) There are 221 carats of pink opal, 18 carats of melon-cut rose quartz, tiny faceted hematites, and Balinese silver accents. There's also a pretty rose quartz charm by the ornate toggle clasp. 18.75" long. (#N434) $325







Mother-of-Pearl Amulet Necklace - SPECIAL ORDER
Mother-of-Pearl Amulet Necklace - SPECIAL ORDER
This delightful amulet necklace is quite similar to the one that I personally wear the most. The mother-of-pearl goes with almost everything, and is so flattering against skin. The patina on this vintage amulet is quite wonderful. Age has worn it smooth, which gives it a brightness that is quite becoming with the glow of the mother-of-pearl. I'm unsure of the particular deity (there are thousands of them), but it is definitely a protective spirit armed with a trident and a mace at your service. Matching earrings are available below, or on page 2 of the Earrings section. 17 5/8" long. Although this particular necklace has sold, and will always be unique, I do have more of these mother-of-pearl beads, and many amulets to choose from. Please let me know if you would like to have a special order. (#N419, 10/16) $185 approximate estimate









Golden Pearl Peacock Amulet Necklace - NEW & SOLD
Golden Pearl Peacock Amulet Necklace - NEW & SOLD
This vintage amulet from India is amazingly elegant. The florals are so refined, and the peacocks are so stately (also, they are a symbol of royalty). Within the leaf-shape of the amulet, the inner design is a subtle heart. Are these peacocks lovebirds??? Perhaps they are. I recently learned from an Indian woman that this is a wedding pendant. The dangles rustle when the piece is worn -- quite alluring. The golden pearls echo the roundness of the dangles, and add to the exotic appeal of the piece. Balinese silver accents repeat the detail of the silver amulet. A pretty pearl charm at the back makes sure that every detail has been attended to. Matching earrings are available below, or on page 2 of the Earrings section. (#N408, 5/8) $750



 




Mixed Garnet Seven-Mothers-and-a-Guardian Necklace - SPECIAL ORDER
Mixed Garnet Seven-Mothers-and-a-Guardian Necklace - SPECIAL ORDER
What a marvel gemstones are. Did you know that garnets occur in all these colors? Amazing. I was so delighted to find these beautiful sparkly beads that I purchased three strands. One to make this necklace, one to make the Surya Amulet necklace on the next page, and one that has yet to be made. This necklace has 31 carats of these faceted gems including the deep red garnet charm by the toggle clasp. The vintage amulet depicts Seven-Mothers-and-a-Guardian. Just imagine how protected you would be with seven mothers PLUS a bonus guardian! This image goes back for millennia, and is sometimes also known as the Seven Sisters (so you can take your pick :-) It has a wonderful worn oval shape, and is perfectly enchanting. 18" long. Although this particular necklace has sold, and will always be unique, I do have more of these mother-of-pearl beads, and many amulets to choose from. Please let me know if you would like to have a special order. (#N378, 11/16) $225 approximate estimate
































   

Mixed Citrine & Five Floral Dangles Necklace - SPECIAL ORDER
Mixed Citrine & Five Floral Dangles Necklace - SPECIAL ORDER
Though this necklace has sold, I do have more of these tribal silver elements to make another necklace in the gemstone of your choice. This version could be called piece should just be named "Sunshine in a Necklace." Everything about it is radiant. There are 114 carats of sparkly, faceted citrine beads in various shades of yellow. The floral pendants radiate out like the rays of the Sun. The dangles give it such nice motion and femininity. The pendants are from India, and the other silver accents are from Bali. The toggle clasp has the same texture as the pendants, and there's a small citrine charm next to it, so it's ready to shine from every angle. You'll feel like a star, which is, after all, what our own Sun is. I hope you're enchanted, too. 17" long. (N184, 12/15) $350
