The Glistening Desert Necklace
The Glistening Desert Necklace is made from 18 yellow gold plated silver, featuring white sapphires and sunburst agate.
The “in love” back clasp signifies both the romantic essence of the relationship and the importance of its history. Genuine white sapphires add extra dazzle. The letters are inspired by the cursive lettering of the neon sign designed by Betty Willis for the Moulin Rouge Hotel in the early 1950’s. This sign currently belongs in the Neon Museum’s collection, a non-profit that’s committed to collecting, preserving, preserving, studying, and exhibiting iconic Las Vegas signs for educational and cultural enrichment. To help with this mission, 10% of the net profit from each necklace sold will go toward this organisation.
A Love Affair takes place in the glistening desert of Las Vegas, a city that is more than just a strip. The Glistening Desert Necklace acknowledges the people, history, and surrounding landscape that comprise much of its often hidden beauty. The sand-like colours of the sunburst agate portray the canyon and deserts, while the stones represent the soft and rugged duality of its terrain.
Like all necklaces in Samantha Siu‘s “A Love Affair” Collection, The Glistening Desert Necklace is reversible.
Samantha Siu is committed to being socially and ethically responsible, and purposely chooses semi-precious stones to be showcased, as they are more readily available and not highly mined or sought after. 10% of the net profit in all purchases are given to 3 causes that are near and dear to Samantha’s heart: Medical Outreach; Education; Animal Conservation.
