Lapis Lazuli – once the most expensive ultramarine pigment – loved by pharaohs and Dutch painters such as Van der Meer alike has not lost any of the luscious feelings it evokes, but thankfully it has become much more affordable. In this piece the richness of raw Afghani, Pakistani and Indian Lapis Lazuli with specks of pyrite (fools’ gold) and tiny Agates are contrasted with rich 22k gold –plated parts and tiny faceted Agates. Keeping it extremely simple with 22k gold -plated central ring and findings from Istanbul, this piece will become a staple of your wardrobe for many years to come. Lapis Lazuli has been mined longer than gold with some psychologists suggesting we all share a continued sub-conscious attraction to this luscious stone because there is nothing much else on this planet that is of such intense blue colouring. For myself, I need no explanation as to why I love Lapis Lazuli – the deepness of the indigo with its fine golden pyrite inclusions fascinates me every time again and works so well with so many outfits!
Like all our pieces, it is one of a kind, handcrafted with love and care in our studio near Byron Bay.
