Our third bracelet to be featured in British GQ!
This very special bracelet set was designed in memory of the famous California Gold Rush of 1848-1858. After the discovery of gold in 1848, thousands of people rushed into California in search of gold and the wealth it brought. Many traveled over 6 months by boat or wagon, often through rough terrain and waters, to try their luck at finding gold.
Made to order in New York with 10mm lapis lazuli, black onyx, hematite, and a genuine silver druzy nugget centerpiece.
Handmade in NYC with a deep blue lapis lazuli with a semi-glossy finish. This lapis is not high gloss, but it is not matte either. Most prized of all semi-precious gemstones. Sourced from Afghanistan. This lapis has unique patterns of natural gold (pyrite) and white (calcite) specs of stone throughout in random formations.
No two will look exactly the same as each lapis bead is entirely unique.
If you can only buy one bracelet in your lifetime, I would recommend one made with lapis lazuli because this stone has such a powerful positive energetic impact on the owner! Lapis lazuli is among the most prized semi-precious natural stones mostly found in Afghanistan. It is a mineral combination of lazurite, calcite, sodalite and pyrite. This luxurious blue stone from Afghanistan stimulates enlightenment while releasing stress and bringing deep inner peace. Lapis harmonizes the physical, spiritual, emotional and mental levels. It encourages self-awareness, creativity and self-expression. Lapis bonds relationships and is believed to alleviate migraines and depression.
Chakra: Activates third eye; balances throat chakra.
