Five-Heart Necklaces

You won't believe it, but I never considered myself a "heart person," and now I just can't get enough of them!  Maybe you'll be smitten, too.  There are even more hearts on the Bracelets page and in the More Necklaces section.  And just to make it convenient, there are two options for perfect (heart :) earrings at the bottom of this page.

These little hearts are so enchanting, I had to buy enough for a few necklaces. I've got lots of pretty options below, OR if you prefer another tiny gemstone, email me, and I'll see if I can make one especially for you!  I've just acquired a second style of hearts in vintage silver, so you can have your choice.

"Have A heart?"  We don't think so.
"How about FIVE?"



Cerise-colored Agate Five Heart Necklace - SPECIAL ORDER
Cerise-colored Agate Five Heart Necklace - SPECIAL ORDER
So sweet. These tiny (2mm) agates have been dyed a cerise red that makes them look like the tiniest little berries you've ever seen. The hearts are Balinese silver made using the ancient technique of granulation. Hematite accents are used throughout, and there is a cute charm by the hand-crafted toggle clasp. Great for layering, too. 17" long. (#N446, 3/17) $125








Iolite Vintage Five-Heart Necklace - SPECIAL ORDER
Iolite Vintage Five-Heart Necklace - SPECIAL ORDER
These vintage hearts may be of Indian origin, but they were purchased in Afghanistan by a man who now lives in Canada. He braves his way back home once or twice a year, and brings back things that I cannot get for myself. His name is Osama (which I understand is as common there as "Bill" is here in the states). He calls me "dear," and I help him with his English. It's a good partnership, and it makes me think about the things that bring us together. In this case, beautiful materials. Incidentally, the lapis lazuli in the "Surin Twilight" is also from him (on page 3 of the More Necklaces section). This necklace has 23 carats of faceted iolite, Balinese silver accents, and round Argentium silver beads (which have a higher silver content, and are more tarnish resistant than regular sterling silver). Matching earrings are available below, and on page 1 of the Earrings section. Although this exact necklace has sold, I have a few more of these vintage hearts, so a custom gemstone request is possible - just email me. 17" long. (N333, 4/7) $250
Necklace only $250

Necklace AND matching earrings $319





Natural Turquoise Five Hearts Necklace - SPECIAL ORDER
Natural Turquoise Five Hearts Necklace - SPECIAL ORDER
All of these necklaces have very delicate proportions. The turquoise beads are 2mm round, and the hearts are only a quarter-inch across. There are tiny hematite beads throughout to add a little sparkle, and the toggle clasp has a sweet hematite and turquoise charm. The hearts are what enchant me most though. They are made in Bali using a technique called "granulation." Tiny spheres of silver are fused together creating the texture on the front that varies just slightly from heart to heart. 17.75" long. I'm happy to have this popular design back in stock. (#N334, 4/17) $125






Faceted Hawkseye Five-Heart Necklace - SPECIAL ORDER
Faceted Hawkseye Five-Heart Necklace - SPECIAL ORDER
Hawkseye is a quartz just like tigerseye, but the colors are a mix of off-black, cool dark grey, and sometimes some bluish tones. These tiny faceted 2mm beads show all those variations, and are punctuated by smooth and faceted hematite beads, and of course, the wonderful granulated silver hearts from Bali. There is a smokey quartz and hematite charm by the silver toggle clasp. This necklace is just under 17.75" and is perfect for layering or just on its own. Although this exact necklace has sold, a special order is possible. (#N261, 8/14) $125

























Nephrite Jade Five Hearts Necklace - SPECIAL ORDER
Nephrite Jade Five Hearts Necklace - SPECIAL ORDER
Each one of these tiny 2mm jade beads seems to be slightly different from the one next to it. The variety of color works so well with the texture of the granulated hearts, and speaks to it's natural origin. Both smooth and faceted hematite beads are (strategically) sprinkled throughout for added sparkle, and the toggle clasp has a pretty jade and smokey quartz charm next to it. 17.25" long. (#N251, 12/14) $125

























Mahogany Tiger-Eye Five Hearts Necklace - SPECIAL ORDER
Mahogany Tiger-Eye Five Hearts Necklace - SPECIAL ORDER
The deep reddish color of "mahogany" tiger-eye is created through heat treating regular golden tiger-eye. It's a wonderful color that really allows this delicate necklace to pop against skin tones. When you look closer at these tiny beads you can also see the "chatoyancy" or cat-eye effect. Just a little reward for your keen observation. Smooth and faceted hematite beads add sparkle throughout and there is a pretty mahogany tiger-eye and faceted hematite charm next to the toggle clasp. 17" long. Although this exact necklace has sold, a special order is possible. (#N252) $125






Snowflake Obsidian Five Hearts Necklace - SPECIAL ORDER
Snowflake Obsidian Five Hearts Necklace - SPECIAL ORDER
What I love about snowflake obsidian is that it's a combination of black and grey, and the pattern lets you know that it is a natural stone. This necklace also has tiny hematite accents throughout, and the hearts are spaced a little further apart. It has a faceted quartz charm by the Balinese toggle clasp, and just like its sister above is a great layering piece, or perfect to wear with a simple t-shirt. You can dress it up or down. Why, you and your new necklace could be inseparable! 16" long. Although this exact necklace has sold, a special order is possible. (#N200, 6/14) $125





Bright Turquoise Five-Hearts Necklace - SPECIAL ORDER
Bright Turquoise Five-Hearts Necklace - SPECIAL ORDER
Irresistible and fun color to this one. Turquoise is just so universally flattering. Tiny variations are visible in some of the beads, but the impact with this necklace is definitely with the color. A tiny hematite and turquoise charm is next to the toggle clasp, and hematite beads (both smooth and faceted) are added throughout for a subtle sparkle. Although this exact necklace has sold, a special order is possible. 16.5" long. (#N244) $125





Iron Tiger Eye Five Hearts Necklace - SPECIAL ORDER
Iron Tiger Eye Five Hearts Necklace - SPECIAL ORDER
Like the snowflake obsidian necklace above, this gemstone is a variation on black. The snowflake obsidian above is a mix of black and grey, and this "Iron Tiger Eye" is a mix of dark browns and metallic off-black. It's actually a stone formed in nature by a mix of tiger eye and hematite. Cool, huh? I've interspersed smooth and faceted hematite beads throughout the necklace to give it extra (but subtle) sparkle. There's a tiger eye charm by the Balinese silver clasp for added allure. 17.75" long. (#N210, 5/17) $125





Mother-of-Pearl Five Hearts Necklace - SPECIAL ORDER
Mother-of-Pearl Five Hearts Necklace - SPECIAL ORDER
Mother-of-Pearl... Sigh... it's kind of dreamy, especially if you have a thing for wearing white cottons and linens for that quasi-Edwardian look. It's also flattering even against the palest of skin tones -- take it from someone who never tans. This strand is unbleached, so it's actually a warm beige mixed with whites. Because of the warmer shades in the mother-of-pearl, I decided to add faceted pyrite instead of hematite, and it gives the necklace a golden sparkle. It's quite delicate on its own, and is quite amazing layered in with other necklaces. This necklace was 17.5" long, but it is possible for me to make another, please email me for a delivery time. (#N209) $125






Carnelian Five-Hearts Necklace - SPECIAL ORDER
Carnelian Five-Hearts Necklace - SPECIAL ORDER
So... I must admit I was resisting using wither pink or red gemstones with the hearts because I didn't want to be cliché, but then I got to thinking, "Maybe it's not cliché... maybe it's CLASSIC." Carnelian is definitely on the orange-y side of red, but it's just enough color for these tiny 2mm beads. Like all the other necklaces on this page it has hematite beads sprinkled through the design to give it a little sparkle and a more finished look. Although this exact necklace has sold, a special order is possible. 16.75" long. (#N211, 11/14) $125






Sugilite Five Hearts Necklace - SPECIAL ORDER
Sugilite Five Hearts Necklace - SPECIAL ORDER
Sugilite is a deep purple opaque gemstone with wonderful variations in it. Smooth hematite beads flank each heart, while faceted hematite beads add a subtle sparkle to the rest of the necklace. There is a faceted amethyst charm by the Balinese silver clasp. Although this exact necklace has sold, I believe a special order is possible. 16" long. (#N213, 5/8) $125
