There are certain things that will always make me think of summer, no matter what season the temperature outside says it is. The sound of waves. The feeling of fresh grass on my toes. And the sight of a gentle breeze blowing through my wife's hair at sunset. Now I can add the Stauer Verano Amethyst & Citrine Necklace to that list.
But this necklace isn't just for those slow sultry nights in August when a cool shower feels like a decadent treat. Sure the Verano (Spanish for summer) is the perfect accessory for that flowing sun dress. And sure, it's just large enough to make a bold statement when paired with that graceful, lightweight top she wears so much when it's hot out. But the best thing about this necklace is that it only hints at summer, suggests it, like a whisper. Worn in winter, it will add some hopeful color to any outfit. In the fall, it will be like a sweet recollection of the months just past. In the spring, a dream of what's to come.
We captured the summer sun and portioned it out piece by piece in 350 carats of glistening genuine gemstones. The warm yellow hues of the shimmering citrine are like the bright sunshine of noon. And the soothing purple shade of each amethyst bead is like the vivid violet that streaks across the sky at sunset. The strand of smooth, polished gems secures with a .925 sterling silver clasp. No matter when she wears the Verano, she's bound to think of summer.
