Large Iolite Beaded Necklace
Poppy Dandiya’s one-of-a-kind iolite necklace evokes a delicate twilight sky with a glimpse of stars on the horizon. Each unique gemstone varies in translucency, their hues of indigo hold a twinkling of glittering inclusions within, adding to their natural beauty. The gems are interspersed with handmade 18ct yellow and white gold beads forming a total length of 16 inches. The longest iolite bead is 24mm.
Iolite is the gem that married couples traditionally gift on their 21st wedding anniversary.
Indian jeweller Poppy Dandiya has always been one of our favourite makers. Influences from ancient spiritual cultures have embodied his ruggedly beautiful jewels with timeless appeal. Now retired from making to give his full attention to his meditation & yoga practice, we are lucky to share a treasure trove of his final collection.
Poppy’s designs have an organic sculptural quality, incorporating his Indian heritage with a dynamic appreciation of the West, and involve several techniques that he has created and that are unique to him. The jewellery he makes has, over time, been diversely described both as very modern and very ancient.
