|"Jewelry Made in the Highlands of Scotland"
A beautiful unique gem for that one of a kind person in your life.
HeatherGems are made from the stems of the Heather plant, a common Scottish plant renowned for purple bloom. The stems are dried, shot blasted to remove the bark and dyed various colors using natural dyes. Stems of different colors are then mixed together and compressed into a block - eighty tons of pressure is required to press the block of stems together. The block is then cut into slices and individual pieces are cut, shaped and filed by skilled craft workers, before being lacquered to give the final finish. The pieces of jewelry are set into silver and pewter fittings. A number of these fittings use Celtic designs dating back to the time of St. Columba and the start of Christianity in Scotland. No two pieces of jewelry will be colored exactly alike. As the heather is sliced, each shows different patterns and colors.
