It turns out humans have been mining Lapis Lazuli longer than Gold, and to this day our obsession with this calming deep indigo semi-precious stone shows no signs of abating. Like Lapis Lazuli, silver– the second key player in this statement necklace was one of the earliest favoured materials. Being easy to work with and of such bold & vivid colours, the royal Lapis Lazuli and combination can be found throughout the ancient world in jewellery and talismans.
In this piece the richness of Afghani and Indian Lapis Lazuli is contrasted with the ultra-smooth tiny faceted Agates and plenty of sleek silver. Set into a hammered silver base from Toronto, these earrings will become a staple of your wardrobe for many years to come.
Psychologists suggest 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 ultra-blue with its fine golden pyrite inclusions fascinates me every time again and works so well with so many outfits.
