The Christine Earrings with Lapis Lazuli
Unpolished Silver and Lapis Lazuli Stones
Handcrafted in Jaipur, India
Associated with the Third Eye Chakra, the meaning of the lapis lazuli can be traced back to ancient Egypt where royalty believed in its power to open itself out to the spirit world and the infinite possibilities of the imagination. It brings awareness of the soul and purpose in life. If you are drawn to the cool and soothing colors of this vibrant stone, it could be a sign that you need help getting out of a spiritual funk. By meditating with the lapis lazuli crystal, a water element stone, you will be able to channel the soothing vibrations of its deep blue color which inspires images of the ocean, the sky, and the heavens. When it comes to finding your happy place, these life-giving elements calm the mind and open the doors to higher consciousness. In short, the Lapis Lazuli allows you to keep your feet on the ground and your head in the clouds.
The reason why you need to pay special attention to jewelry with Lapis Lazuli is because of its nature. It is considered a soft gem. Moreover, it is a porous rock, which is why soaking it in water will ruin it. The best option for storage is to wrap it in a cloth to protect the stone from friction, scratching, and other means of wear and tear.
UNPOLISHED is the first jewelry collection developed by Princesse Décadente, featuring a strong emphasis on unrefined silver, raw stones, and crystals. It’s a selection of bijoux celebrating understated luxury and high-end materials while providing sustainable and unique creations for the modern cosmopolitan woman.
UNPOLISHED is about a different approach – a collaborative space where Princesse Décadente and Indian artisans share their inspirations and tell stories through design; a territory dedicated to Mesdames et Mesdemoiselles who stretch beyond the conventional boundaries of accessories.
UNPOLISHED is ideal for ladies with a desire to not only stay fashionable but also to inspire and delight their friends and colleagues with their unique style.
Please note that all of Princesse Décadente’s goods are handmade using recycled, vintage and/or new eco-friendly, sustainable, organic material. We put hours of love and dedication into every piece we create, starting from hand-picking the fabric then washing & drying it to designing, drafting & cutting the pattern by sewing, stitching, ironing, and hammering. As with a lot of handcrafted or recycled materials, there are inherent markings that some may consider "flaws"; we find that it's these beautiful little "scars" that give each piece its own special character, imparting a uniqueness that we could not replicate with a machine-made object. We love the perfection of imperfection, so please keep this in mind if you are thinking of purchasing any of Princesse Décadente’s goods.
