What sets the heroines apart from other ladies in Jane Austen's novels is their ability to genuinely change their attitudes and behaviors when they perceive they have been in the wrong. Emma Woodhouse shows this quality more than Elinor Dashwood or Fanny Price, but Emma faces evils the others did not: "having rather too much of her own way, and a disposition to think a little too well of herself". In addition to being "handsome and clever", she is also rich and enjoys the comfort of being firmly established at the top of the social order of their village of Highbury. She imagines herself a matchmaker, and sadly time shows her that her ability to understand and recommend for others is woefully less than she thought. However, throughout the deceptions and misunderstandings of those around her, she maintains a sweetness and generosity of spirit that show her to be a true lady. The delicate pink of the rose quartz gemstones echo this sweetness and the style is befitting of a gentlewoman, eighteenth century or not. The gemstones hang from a sterling silver link chain ending with a small toggle clasp.

Length: necklace - 18"


  • rose quartz gemstone beads
  • sterling silver wire
  • sterling silver chain & toggle clasp

Care & cleaning: Clean with warm soapy water and avoid chemical or abrasive cleaners and use a soft jewelry polishing cloth to clean tarnish appearing on silver.

Quartz is a strong stone, but the wire wrap attaching the gemstones to the silver chain is a soft sterling silver wire and may be bent or otherwise distorted with hard tugs and pulls. As with all beaded jewelry: do not let young toddlers chew on it.

This 18" necklace is can be worn with shells and blouses with high collars. It's a classic design that works equally well with a casual outfit or more elegant attire. The style and drape are particularly well-suited to moderate V-neck necklines (see the unexpected elegance example).
