Sapphires are the birthstone for September, so this necklace is perfect as a birthday gift for September babies or to remember a loved one born in September.

Star sapphires show a beautiful 6 ray star under direct light. This happens because of the way the crystal has grown with fibrous inclusions perfectly aligned in the shape of the crystal. They are not see through like other sapphires, solid in colour and often lighter in colour. I have beautiful grey blue and white to choose from. (Let me know if you would like the white sapphire shown in image 2 and 4).

It is very difficult to order a piece online without seeing it in person and I want to make it as easy as possible for you!

INSPIRATION
My mandala collection began with inspiration from Tibetan Buddhist Thanka paintings and the traditional motifs used to decorate Buddhist temples, particularly in Sri Lankan temples during my time living there. My starting point was lots of drawing and variations of the combinations and designs and sizes. I then handmade my favourites using individual pieces of wire, soldering every joint. For this mandala design, I designed the piece using a 3d design program, which then can be 3d printed in a special detailed wax. Once I was happy with the design I was then able to make a mould which could be used for lost wax casting. This design uses two mandalas, the little mandala soldered inside the medium mandala . With the raw casting I have to file, polish and finish the piece before tumbling it to get the subtle matt finish. Then I add the setting and set the gemstone. Each piece is inspected carefully by me to ensure a fine finish with no casting marks or flaws. They are all stamped with my unique hallmark, SB and metal purity.

I post items using Australia post, which usually takes from 2-5 days within Australia. International orders are shipped using DHL which provides insurance and a tracking number. It can take 1-4 weeks depending on location. I will be in touch to give you details of your package tracking details and estimates of delivery times.
