The "Teapot" asterism is the easily recognisable part of the Sagittarius constellation, as seen from the northern hemisphere.
The Teapot necklace is made entirely of sterling silver and little stars are brilliant cut natural citrine and synthetic* blue spinel (2.5 to 3.5 mm). I chose gemstones that correspond in terms of color and size to the real colours (yellow and blue) and magnitude of the stars (please see the last photo).
The pendant measures roughly 45 x 30 mm ( ~ 1.8 x 1.2 inches) and the length of the necklace is 47 cm (18 inch). It has an extra 6 cm extension in case you prefer it a bit longer.
This necklace is ready to ship and will arrive beautifully packed in a black box.
The pendant pictured here has not been oxidised, it is white silver, but you can also order it with a black patina, which I personally think that brings out the little stars. (please see here an example of a constellation pendant with black patina: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B016QUT71U )
I am always open to suggestions; should you prefer to order a similar necklace set with other gemstones, please contact me and we'll discuss it.
* A synthetic gem material is one that is made in a laboratory, but which shares virtually all chemical, optical, and physical characteristics of its natural mineral counterpart.
REALLY, TRULY RELAX
From the time your alarm blares at the crack of dawn until you crawl back into bed each night, there’s a constant buzz of unrelenting activity. No matter the day, there always seems to be deadlines due, errands to run, a gym membership to use, kids to pick up from school, dinner to cook, and household cleaning to complete. Isn’t it time you take a second for you?
When you use a stainless steel, built-to-last Minos teapot, you’re giving yourself permission to finally exhale, relaxing into the moment and letting the little things in life roll off your shoulders. The steam coming off your cup from your Stainless Steel Teapot is complete heaven. And the renewed energy and focus you feel after unwinding is unparalleled.
GREAT SIZE TO SUIT YOUR MOOD
The 500ml Stainless Steel Teapot is perfect for a tea party for two. (We recommend cuddling up with a great blanket, a novel you just can’t bear to put down, and a piping hot cup of comforting peppermint tea.) The Minos teapot is a declaration to the world that you deserve to rest, restore, and relax.
