The 14k Yellow Gold Blue Venetian Starfish pendant offers a lively and stylish rendition of the beloved seaside symbol. This starfish in vibrant blue Venetian glass is prong-set with 14k yellow gold. A small ruby stone accents the piece, offering an attractive color contrast to the blue and gold. The motif continues along the bail, which features small, carved gold starfish. This pendant hangs from an 18-inch rolo chain with a spring-ring clasp. You'll enjoy catching the warm summer light with this necklace and pairing it with your favorite warm weather attire.


Founded by the Tagliamonte family in 1943, the Tagliamonte jewelry line has been creating high-quality and timeless designs for over 60 years. Currently developed in Vicenza, Italy or otherwise known as the gold city, the Tagliamonte Vicenza goldsmith company has been run by three family generations.

Signature to the Tagliamonte line is the intricate use of Venetian Cameos. The magical world of Venetian Cameos, or otherwise known as glass pastels, was a part of the Ancient Roman refined jewelry tradition. The Tagliamonte family rediscovered this mysterious material in 1987 and has since then been producing exquisite and eye-catching designs. Containing a wide color palate, the glass pastels are used to create tiny engravings that exert scenes from when the tradition of Venetian Cameos first began.


About Birthstone Jewelry


July Birthstone: Ruby

Known as "king of the gems" in ancient Sanskrit, the ruby has long been prized for its rarity and its passionate red hue. Those born in July wear rubies as symbols of beauty, love, happiness, and good fortune.

History of Birthstones

Chances are you can name your birthstone, but have you ever wondered how certain stones came to be associated with particular months? Most gem scholars trace the tradition to the Old Testament story of Aaron, whose breastplate was decorated with twelve precious stones, one for each of the twelve tribes of Israel. Over time, these stones were linked with certain powers and tied to particular astrological signs, and later to calendar months.

There are many variations of birthstone lists, including Mystical birthstones, which originate from Tibet and date back over a thousand years, and Ayurvedic birthstones, associated with ancient Indian medicine and beliefs. Birthstones have also been tied to ancient Pagan religions, and even to the collective wisdom of the legendary lost city of Atlantis.

The Modern birthstone list, perhaps the most universally known, was released by the American National Association of Jewelers and officially adopted in 1912. Whether you embrace birthstone lore, or look upon it with a skeptical eye, there is an undeniable appeal to collecting a beautiful gemstone that is reputed to hold special power, meaning, and good fortune just for you.
