The Christiane Earrings
Onyx can open the Chakras to allow a smoother flow of positive energies that will make the user feel healthier, lighter, and more vibrant. It is also an excellent stone to get rid of negative perceptions and will help the world see a different side of you. Onyx can fill you with the confidence required to face people, speak in front of a large crowd, and clearly express what you’re feeling. This will greatly improve your ability to relate to people, as Onyx will bring restful and pure energies, soothe worries, remove fears, and ease tensions. In India, Onyx is used to ward off the evil eye and will keep a lid on your emotions during highly-charged moments: it is a great tool to stimulate intuitive abilities. The stone can also enhance your dream experiences and spiritual visions. During busy days, the warmth that you feel from this stone will reassure you that everything is going to be okay. No matter how demanding the future becomes, you will be fine.
The best way to clean your Onyx stone is with a soft cloth. Ammonia or ultrasonic cleaners are not recommended because their pores can absorb the chemicals in the soap or cleaning materials.
The Ashok Collection
Jewelry making is an evolving art form, and the beauty of Indian charms lies in the uniqueness of their design and the workmanship involved in creating the intricate pieces. There are items to adorn almost every part of the body, from the hair to the toe, and also for fulfilling religious needs. Not only are human beings are decorated with jewelry, but some pieces are specially crafted for Gods, Goddesses, and even for ceremonial animals such as elephants, cows, and horses. The art of jewelry has been patronized by the royal class of India since ancient times when the right to own the most magnificent jewels even led to battles. The availability of such a wide variety of jewelry is mainly down to the regional differences in design, which include the different tastes of local people and their lifestyles. For instance, silver ornaments are especially popular in the states of Gujarat, Himachal Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh, and Rajasthan, where traditionally nomadic groups wear bright and weighty ornaments embossed with coins, shells, beads, and metallic mesh which make them distinguishable at first glance. Rajasthani silverware is popular all over the world and original jewels are often decorated with colorful beads as well as tinkling bells that bear a distinctive oxidized appearance. This area remains a global center of silver craftsmanship and hand-cutting of gems, precious stones, semi-precious stones together with the jewels that are made from them. Princesse Décadente brings you the Ashok Collection from Rajasthan - class, royalty, and history all rolled into one.
