March Birthstone: Aquamarine – Treasure of Mermaids.

If you were born in March, your birthstone is the rich in colour, Aquamarine. The Aquamarine has long been a symbol of youth, health and hope as well as friendship and fidelity. Reminiscent of the sea, this stone ranges from pale to deep blue. We love how this stone creates such a beautiful accent to spring and summer wardrobes.

The name Aquamarine is derived from the Latin words aqua, meaning water, and marina meaning sea. This stone was believed to protect sailors and guarantee a safe voyage. Legends also say that aquamarine is the treasure of mermaids, and its powers are even stronger when immersed in water. The serene colour of Aquamarine is said to bring peace and calming powers to its owner, relieving stress and enhancing intuition. They say that Aquamarine makes a great anniversary gift due to it having a soothing effect on relationships, especially for married couples.

It is also believed that Aquamarine heightens awareness, communication skills, and assists with quick responses. The stone is unique in that it never has inclusions, meaning that it’s flawless.

Visit us in store in Hout Bay to browse some of our single stone necklaces and a new macramé style sliding bracelets with the gorgeous aquamarine bead.

Wearing Winter

Winter, for some can be rather overwhelming when it comes to figuring out how to style outfits from head to toe. But, in the fashion world – Winter is exciting. It’s time to be bold and to stand out. Jewellery can also be a challenge for some in winter. The purpose of beautiful jewellery is for it to be seen. But, how do we do that when we are wearing chunky knits and high necks? We have the perfect answer for you.

THE MORE, THE MERRIER: Layering! Just like layering garments in winter, we love layering our jewellery. You can easily take a simple piece of jewellery and turn it into something that becomes a statement. Simply find a few necklaces, bracelets or rings that work together, stagger in length and that will compliment one another and it will soon become very effective. Layering textures immediately becomes an eye catcher.

DARK & GLOOMY: We also like to show off our darker stones at this time of the year: Lapis Lazuli, black spinel, Garnet, London Blue Topaz, Hematite and beautiful Labradorite. That way your clothing won’t steal their stage. Our delicate jewellery also has its place, even in winter, and sometimes it’s the more elegant and simple pieces that get noticed. I must admit, however, that although the darker stones look gorgeous in winter, we will always find ourselves turning toward our classics – blue topaz, pearl, pale amethyst, rose quartz to name a few.

BIGGER IS BETTER: As we all know, they claim that bigger is better. We have some beautiful statement pieces that are unique and can’t go unnoticed. We love playing around with these pieces, and although they can be gorgeous with a simple button up collared shirt, they can also work beautifully with a chunky knit or even an elegant evening gown. For example we have created a unique set of earrings, using delicate beading or bold stones as centerpieces and then we add that special touch by plating them in gold for that sparkle factor, perfect for winter!
