Jewelled Mushroom Pendant (Pink Sapphire)
According to Welsh folklore, the appearance of a fairy ring is an indication of an underground fairy village and a promise of good luck. Perhaps, a prosperous village that can afford to adorn its mushrooms with jewels. Since ancient times, sapphires have been prized as gemstones, associated with luck and protection, and were often worn by kings.
This little jewelled mushroom pendant, cast in solid sterling silver, holds 8 pink sapphires. No matter how it twists or turns, sapphires are always visible. These gemstones add a rich touch to our fairy magic with their colour and clarity.
Our little mushroom is about ½ inch tall (12 mm) and ½ inch (12 mm) across the cap. It hangs on a delicate 18” sterling silver rolo chain.
