Just dig out this old beauty today.
it has been forgotten in the corner of my jewelry box for a long time but I am falling in love with it all over again.

Can I actually wear this stone in shower or is it going to cause damage?

I am looking into pick up more pieces in blue chalcedony. I have a pair of three motif earring in white MOP + blue Chalcedony+grey MoP. 70236BA6-AB0D-456B-B4D6-21D74881CFD2.jpeg



which of the below four should i get?
i like (1) and (4) The most, the length of (1)maybe a little more challenging to pair with different outfit, (4) will be more flexible in adjusting how it sits.

At home
The single motif looks beautiful on you. Please don’t wear it to shower. All the chemicals can damage the stone. Hurts my heart...
And I love 4. In the long chains I love the varying sizes of the motifs. Makes it so fun!

If budget is not option then 4 for sure. It is a versatile piece.

Either the 20 or long Magic could work with the earrings, but I think the 10 and short Magic are too much to wear so close to the earrings. Your chalcedony is gorgeous!

Love your pendant on you. I am one who doesn’t care if the stone is sensitive. It costs $240 per stone to change, and it takes a while to damage. I alternate necklaces, so I’ll wear for a week or 2 before I switch to another necklace and don’t want to be bothered with taking it off every day that I shower. Now if you plan on going to the pool, beach, or wear for more than a couple weeks without taking it off, I wouldn’t suggest that.

Re your choices, I’d choose 2 or 4, only because of the long earrings. All are beautiful choices though. Good luck!

Wow good to know that you can change the stone. That wonderful. I hate taking necklace on and off daily too. But beach and pool for sure.
