The Gabrielle Ring with Garnet
Unpolished Silver and Garnet
Handmade in Jaipur, India
Not only was Garnet prized as an ornamental jewel, but its strong curative powers and protective energies made it invaluable to the wearer. It is known for its utilization of creative energy, grounding spirit forces within the body, and aiding the ability to work lovingly on the physical plane. Yet it is a sensual stone; it represents primordial fire and the creation of the world out of chaos, purification, and love. It is a stone of strong, intense feelings. Garnet cleanses and re-energizes the Chakras. It revitalizes, purifies and balances energy, bringing serenity or passion as appropriate. It inspires love and devotion, balancing the sex drive, and alleviating emotional disharmony. It stimulates both the Base and Crown Chakras to provide free flow of movement through the spinal column and inner pathway of light, distributing the appropriate amount of energy to each portion of the body. Garnet has a strong link with the pituitary gland and can cause expanded awareness and past-life recall. It activates other crystals, amplifying their effect. It is also known as a Stone of Commitment - to purpose, to others, and to oneself. Its loving powers reflect the attributes of devotion and understanding. It both monitors and adjusts the flow of energy to provide for a balanced energy field around the physical body and alignment of the emotional and intellectual bodies.
Polish the stone with a soft, clean, dry cloth. Make a mild soap and water solution. Mix about half a cup of water and 2 drops of soap in the bowl and stir it up.
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.
