Silver and Red Tourmaline
Handmade in Rajasthan, India
Size 16 (56)
Rubellite Tourmaline, also known as Red Tourmaline, is a stone of the perfect heart - one that is strong, vital, and full of passion for love and life. Its energy creates a vibrational pattern that resonates deeper with the Heart Chakra than other stones, opening itself to love that goes beyond human relationships and out to the Universe. Rubellite also triggers the Root Chakra, bringing an increased flow of Prana to nurture and heal the emotional body. Its grounding influence brings about a lust for life as well as lively interaction with others. It helps revitalize passion and joy in sexuality and helps you to make commitments based on true feelings. The name Rubellite comes from the Latin rubellus, meaning “reddish,” and refers to the similarity of its color to that of the Ruby. It may be used for harmonizing the feminine energies within both sexes and lends strength to women in emotional challenges. It reinforces the sense of smell, and in that respect, can also enhance the perception of pheromones which produces an aphrodisiac effect. This is a shamanic stone that provides protection during ritual work and in past times was used to point out a troublemaker or offender, also to indicate a good direction in which to move. Tourmaline is specifically used to treat motion sickness. It may assist in restoring shine to hair and nails.
When cleaning your Tourmaline stone, the best method is to clean it with a soft cloth. Ammonia or ultrasonic cleaners are not recommended because their pores can absorb the chemicals in the soap or in the 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 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.
