For those who love a statement piece, the Barbary Coast collection is perfect for those who choose to build an ensemble around their jewelry. Catch the light and also plenty of admiring glances with this Amber, Citrine, and Crystal Quartz necklace. Round smooth Crystal Quartz and Citrine gemstone beads are mixed throughout with a selection of Amber and Gold Freshwater Pearls.

Nature is already a work of art, so using it as an inspiration to create alluring jewelry is an easy trend to get behind. Celebrating the rich colors and textures of the forest, Handmade Jewelry by John S. Brana brings you this amazing hand crafted necklace. Citrine, the most common color of quartz, is best known in the world of crystals and alternative medicine as a gem containing the solar energy of the sun, and many believe it has special healing qualities. Amber is known for its rich color and warm tones. Made from fossilized tree resin, this historic gem has been around since the first caveman gave a pretty stone to his beloved. Quartz is the second most abundant mineral on Earth and is able to catch the light brilliantly.
These three gems combined make a unique and relaxing combination of cascading stones that will compliment any outfit. If you’re hoping to give this necklace as a gift we do ship in a super cute gift box. This popular collection has been known to inspire brilliance, relaxation and warm feelings of zen. Maybe it’s the deeply vibrant colors or perhaps the tumbling string of gems. Either way, you’ll be happy to have this piece in your jewelry box!

Coral jewelry has been around for millennia. Ancient artifacts from around 41,000 years ago have been found decorated with this colorful stone. Actually, stone is not really the right word here as coral is made up of millions of microscopic organisms. Growing in colonies, they form the beautiful shapes and colors which we easily recognize. These vibrant tones can be seen in items such as John S. Brana's spectacular Pink Coral Garnet Necklace.
Over the ages, coral has been thought to have supernatural properties. Even today, you can purchase coral jewelry for added protection. Black coral is known to guard against misfortune and looks fantastic when polished and set in gold. The pink coral found in pieces such as John S. Brana’s Garnet Amber Carnelian Necklace is thought to bring good health. This pink variety is found in a number of shades from almost white to salmon red and can have marbled qualities.
There are also some rarer, more valuable types of coral. These variations grow incredibly slowly and so cannot be harvested often without damaging the fragile ocean ecosystem. Red coral was used in jewelry before Roman times and is seen as a truly passionate stone. The rarest coral, however, is gold coral which is only found in a few regions worldwide. Its mysterious chatoyance (a strange, moving inner light) makes this type of coral highly sought-after.
