This summer seems to be flying by, and Quiddity Gifts has been busy making lots of lovely Morse Code necklaces.
The zodiac line is very popular for birthday pressies, especially as you can choose your accent stone. We’re right in the middle of Leo and you can choose from dainty 2mm seed beads, Swarovski crystals, two-tone orange and red (for a real fiery look!), or semi-precious red carnelian for something extra special. There’s still plenty of time to order one, as dispatch time is only 24hrs!
If you’re wondering why all the accent stones are red, it’s because the zodiac sign Leo falls under the element of Fire. They’re usually impulsive and passionate….quite ‘fiery’!
But if you’re not keen on red, how about the lovely green colour of the August Birthstone: Peridot?
This poem is part of a set of twelve, representing the months of the year in the Gregorian calendar, but nobody knows who penned them.
Peridot stones can be found in ancient Egyptian jewellery dating from around 2,000BC, and saw a resurgence in popularity in the 1990s when deposits of premium quality stones were found in the Kashmir region of Pakistan.
The price depends on many factors, including the amount of iron which gives the stone it’s brilliant green hue. But don’t worry, Quiddity Gifts stocks high-quality cracked glass and Swarovski crystal beads in green shades. Get the peridot look for a fraction of the cost!
