The Birthstone Twist Cross is handmade in my workshop in Frederick, Colorado.  The cross is made from two pieces of sterling silver.  One of the silver pieces has been twisted and soldered to the other to make the cross.  A 2mm, round birthstone (natural amethyst is shown in the photos) is set with four prongs cut from the silver in the center of the cross.  The silver has been finished to a high polish.  The chain hangs through a hole cut into the top of the cross.  The back is engraved with 925 (indicating sterling silver) and my maker's mark, VAD.



30mm long

12mm wide

3mm thick


The pendant hangs on a 1mm, sterling silver cable chain with a sterling silver lobster clasp. You have multiple different chain length options to choose from. If you would like an option not provided, just let me know and we can make exactly what you would like.

Birthstone Twist Cross Necklace

  • Sterling silver is made up of different metals, some of which will react to chemicals found in the air.  This reaction will produce a tarnish on the surface of the metal.  High moisture levels, exposure to sunlight, and contaminates such as salt water will increase this reaction.  To protect your sterling silver jewelry, please keep it in the complimentary tarnish resistant baggie when not being worn, or keep it in any airtight bag, and store your jewelry in a cool, dry place.  To clean any tarnish that does accumulate on the surface of the jewelry, use a soft polishing cloth or silver cleaner.

    To clean any dirt or grime, gently brush the jewelry with a soft bristled toothbrush and mild dish soap.  Enjoy the design and please contact me with any problems or concerns.
