This handmade jewellery is inspired by California’s Redwood National Park. Home to the tallest trees on the planet, this verdant and fertile landscape also accommodates countless river-ways, meadows, and walking paths which criss-cross the landscape like contours on a map. On a sunny day, the various bodies of water become perfect mirrors for the blue skies above.
A March birthstone, aquamarine is named after the calming blue-green hues of the ocean waters with which it shares its gorgeous colouring. Due to this tie with the seas, it has been thought by many to offer mystical protection to sailors and fishermen. Some ancient folklore strengthens this maritime association even further, going as far as to describe the gemstone as the treasure of mermaids!
One of November’s birthstones, topaz is thought to be named after the Sanskrit tapas, meaning ‘fire’. Beliefs around topaz vary – Hindu mythology points to its functions as a lengthener of life and provider of wisdom, whilst some 13th-century mystics claimed that it could sharpen and even restore eyesight and cure mental illness. Because of this, it is often viewed as a sacred stone.
A birthstone for the month of April first developed in the USSR in the 1970s, cubic zirconia is created from base substances found in extraterrestrial rock, both from asteroids and the moon. Some claim that it aids in controlling one’s ego and selfishness, as well as in gaining a strong mental and spiritual clarity.
45mm long (~1 3/4 inchs), these dazzling gemstone earrings will arrive packaged in a small gift box featuring the image of their inspiration on the inside of the lid. Combined with an organza bag, this results in a gorgeously-presented pair which makes the perfect gift.
