This delightful 925-Sterling Silver Ring is featuring two luscious faceted peridots and three white Pearls.
PEARL - the ancient gemstone of the sea.
One Persian legend tells that pearls were created when a rainbow met the earth after a storm. Imperfections in a pearl's appearance were thought to be the result of thunder and lightning.
The ancient Egyptians prized pearls so much that they were buried with them. Cleopatra reportedly dissolved a pearl from one of her earrings in a glass of either wine or vinegar, depending on the source, and drank it. She did this just to show Mark Anthony that she could devour the wealth of an entire nation in just one gulp.
The PERIDOT is one of the lesser-known gemstones, despite its illustrious history, increasing rarity and lively beauty.
The color of the stones, reminiscent of spring, linked them to nature, youthfulness and the goddess Isis.
Egyptian Priests drank from cups lined with peridot to heal maladies and pay tribute to the goddess.
- The gems were thought to promote wealth and power for their wearers and also to ward against nightmares and jealous thoughts.
We bet it’s nearly impossible to see a a Peridot and not smile.
Governed by both the Solar Plexus and Heart Chakras, Peridot unites their energies.
In this, Peridot alternately gives heart energy to our will and, at the same time, infuses the strength we need to act on our heart’s deepest desires.
In nature Peridot grows as a hexagon. In SACRED GEOMETRY the hexagon represents balance, positivity and resolution. The hex appears again and again in nature from flowers to honeycombs. So again, we find the Peridot spirit having strong ties to Gaia and the patterns of creation itself.
One more symbolic meaning for you to ponder with this healing crystal – it’s linked to both the sun and the moon, so Peridot bridges the gap between the conscious and sub-conscious as well as the Higher Self and even Divine realms. As such it is a good meditative tool.
Peridots are rare in Hawaii, but as one of the few natural gems found on the islands they quickly became a treasured part of native mythology.
Tiny peridot pebbles washed up onshore, causing the Hawaiians to believe they were the tears of Pele, goddess of the fiercest elements.
It is a delicate stone, and a rare one, so treat your peridot jewelry with great care to preserve it for the appreciation of future generations.
