The Claudia Necklace in Moonstone
Unpolished Silver, Moonstone Beads and Druzy Stone
Handcrafted in Jaipur, India
In India, the moonstone has always been a sacred stone, with a particularly special significance for lovers. It was believed that placing Moonstone in your mouth during a full moon would allow you to see your future. It is a stone of mystery and has often been associated with femininity because of its ability to enhance the intuitive side of the mind. When employed by females it initiates Kundalini energy and promotes clairvoyance. When employed by males it stimulates the right side of the brain, encouraging nonlinear thinking and emotional balance. In both cases, it helps to activate the Third Eye and Crown Chakras. Moonstone is the stone of new beginnings, it is strongly connected to the moon and to intuition, reminding us that everything is part of a cycle of change. To maximize its effectiveness you should keep it under your pillow and use the messages of Dreamtime to restore mental balance, as the moonstone opens the mind to sudden and irrational impulses.
Take note that ultrasonic and steam cleaners cannot be used for Moonstone. What you may use though is warm soapy water for cleaning: soak your jewels for 2 to 5 minutes, then gently dry with a soft cloth.
Druzy gets its name from the word “druse,” which refers to a rock surface covered with tiny crystals, such as those that are found inside geodes or in larger pockets of mineral deposits. It is known as “The Gemstone of Heaven” and is considered by many to endorse strength and promote fresh ideas to guide an individual’s growth. It is also related to the notions of harmony, patience, and love. Psychics consider this gem as key in facilitating the opening of your hidden powers and helping its user find their own vision. It has several healing properties: it increases the body’s natural therapeutic properties, reinforces the spirit, and offers the stability needed to avoid despair or feelings of panic. Druzy is known to activate the light of all the Chakras of its carrier’s torso; the rainbow hues of this gem resonate in them by aligning and then purifying the entire system.
Take the same precautions with Druzy as you would with other stones. No harsh cleaners, and if you have a dust problem, start with a bit of water and light once over with a soft toothbrush. That will return the sparkle without compromising the coating.
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.
