Iolite & Mother-of-Pearl Bracelet
This bracelet features three cabochon iolite gemstones set in sterling silver, and interspersed with long, natural mother-of-pearl links, also set in silver. A beautiful mix of organic and crystalline materials, this bracelet has a toggle-closure and rests elegantly on the wrist.
Iolite draws its name from the Greek for ‘violet’, and is known as a vision stone, linked to greater insight and inner-knowledge. It is a translucent stone with a deep dark purple or violet colour, and according to legend was used by Vikings to reduce glare from the sun, aiding in navigation and giving it the name “Viking Compass Stone.”
Mother of Pearl is an organic stone produced on the inner layer of shells, and is the bed in which pearls grow, making them of the same material and lending it its name. Its wide availability and bright sheen has made it a top choice for jewellers and artisans for centuries. Like pearls themselves, it is associated with femininity, the element of water, and fertility.
