Right as Rain

Plants need rain in order to grow up strong. So if a storm blows through, why not run outside and learn to dance in the rain! Mary Steratore's splashy necklace is decked with three charms: a silver raindrop and two semiprecious stones. Aquamarine is believed to promote courage and positive energy, and peridot is thought to support healing, rebirth and renewal. Comes with a card printed with the stones' meanings.

Artist Mary Steratore gathers her materials from around the globe: waxes and molds are made in Italy, the charms are cast in Thailand, and the chain is made in the USA. She assembles the final necklace in the USA.

It can be daunting trading one career for another, especially when there are PhDs involved. But for Mary Steratore, such a change led to the realization of true artistic expression. Leaving archaeology to create her own fine art, Steratore settled in Rome, where her paintings and sculptures were well-received. After showing her work throughout Italy and the US, she developed a new line of jewelry inspired by her sculpture.

My very hard-to-please daughter received this necklace as a high school graduation gift. That was Saturday; she hasn't taken it off. As an active kid who likes jewelry that's on the small side, she was intrigued by the design and meaning of each of the three elements in this necklace. Growth (rebirth/renewal) is an obvious one for someone heading to college; courage is something specifically important to her. Great images and symbols to wear.

There are a lot of comments here regarding the size. Personally, I think the size is perfect; not too small, not too big. But you should check the measurements against a ruler first, so that you aren't disappointed. I love the meaning behind the necklace and all the symbols. However... my birthstone is an aquamarine. And the stone that is on the necklace is definitely not an aquamarine. Not even close. It's clear. JUST LIKE THE PICTURE. I should've known better, but I was hoping that the picture misrepresented the stone.

    Comments about UncommonGoods Growth Necklace:

    I wear this everyday. Peridot is my birthstone. I loved the card that lists the meanings of the pieces on the necklace. Peridot is healing. The raindrop is the soft replenishing. The aquamarine (which my mom always wears) is a reminder of courage. Between my mom's stroke and my sister's diagnosis of lung cancer within 6 months, this necklace is my talisman. I feel my mom and sister with me (I live very far away) and it reminds me to stay positive.
    This necklace is the best gift I could give ME at this time. I am so grateful to UnCommon Goods for this jewelry and ALL the wonderful things they offer. You are the best for one stop unique shopping. I always find something for my home, a gift or even a smile! Thank you UnCommon Goods, you are THE BEST❤️

                I was extremely disappointed in this product. The pendants are so tiny. It is made for a small child, not a teenager or adult. The quality is also shabby and nothing special. I don't believe this was worth the price at all. Steer clear!

                        The size is small which I was aware of, this was the perfect size. I was disappointed in the colors of the stones. The aquamarine stone looks clear and peridot is a pale green. The quality was good.
