Purple Reign

Designer Emilie Shapiro makes jewelry as it's believed the ancient Egyptians did: using the craft of lost-wax casting. A rough-cut, unpolished gemstone–in this case, a tanzanite crystal in a vibrant shade of violet–is cast in place when molten metal solidifies around it. A sterling silver chain completes the artful marriage of materials in this delicate pendant necklace. Handmade in New York City.

Due to the recycled and handmade nature of this item, each is unique and will vary.

“A goal is just a dream without a deadline.”

There was never a moment that Emilie Shapiro didn't consider herself an artist. "Before I could speak I expressed myself through what I made with my hands," she says. "I am so incredibly lucky that my parents allowed me to pursue life on the path I chose." That path led to a line of jewelry comprised entirely of one-of-a-kind pieces she crafts by combining her metalsmithing skills with her love of found objects. "I have a massive stone collection that I started when I was two," says the New York City resident. "I usually pull out my drawers of gems and minerals and something catches my eye that I haven't seen before or forgot about." When Emilie creates a piece, she says she imagines the wearer seeing a reflection of themselves in it—“beauty in imperfection."

      Comments about UncommonGoods Tanzanite Single Pendant:

      I was sorely disappointed in this product. The image portrayed does not look anything like the final product. The tanzanite is encrusted in a stone - it is not a solid gem. The gold encasement is dull and the workmanship was poor - the sides did not weld together correctly. The whole thing was also much smaller than it appeared. Advise to steer clear. Not worth the money spent. This was one of several other uncommon goods products I purchased in which I was very disappointed. Not likely to use Uncommon goods again generally. Although I truly like the idea of unique gifts like this, the poor quality is not worth it.

          Comments about UncommonGoods Tanzanite Single Pendant:

          Had great hopes for this item, even knowing it is a rough cut & not a polished stone. Main complaint is that the stone is not really the color as represented in the picture. More of a rough, hard to see blue, maybe better seen in the sun. Clasp is a little tiny for me, but I have been able to open & close it by myself without much trouble. Overall beautiful idea, though, & quality seem very good. Chain is a nice length, I think... a little on the short side, but that makes it visible when wearing it. Just wish the stone looked more like the tanzanite color I was looking for.

          Service and delivery comments:

          Delivery was as expected & product was well packaged. No tangled chain.
