Made with intention and purpose; to be worn and treasured - this is the heart behind all of our handmade jewellery pieces.
Birthstone jewellery is a beautiful keepsake to honour the ones we love, and the ones we've lost. A precious gemstone to represent each month of the year.
Ruby and Carnelian are the Birthstones of July. Beautifully contrasting translucent orange and opaque matte red. Ruby is also the 15th and 80th wedding anniversary gemstone, and Carnelian the 17th.
Ruby is the most famous of all red gemstones and is the hardest, besides Diamond, making it durable enough to wear everyday.
The warm, fiery Carnelian was revered by ancient noblemen and was often worn into battle by warriors, used in burials and alchemy.
Hardcrafted from 8mm Carnelian, Ruby nuggets, lava and vintage gold spacers.
The origin of birthstones are as old as they are mysterious. Whilst the first official Birthstone list was created in 1912, it's thought that its origins go back much further! About 3,000 back. In the book of Exodus a breastplate is described to be adorned with 12 precious stones. It was then theorised that these 12 stones represented the 12months of the year. The history is quite interesting and you can read more about Birthstones over on the BLOG.
July Birthstone Bracelet - Ruby and Carnelian
Your aromatherapy bracelet is made for use with theraputic grade essential oils (we recommend and love doTERRA). Simply place one or two drops onto your fingers and massage into the Lava Beads. Allow the oil to be absorbed by the Lava before inhaling the beautiful aroma.
The scent will remain on your stone for up to 3 days depending on the oil. Simply layer additional oils to change or add to the scent.
Please be careful to avoid oils coming into contact with other elements of the lava jewellery as they may tarnish over time.
Semi-precious and precious gemstones require a little more TLC than stainless steel or metallic jewellery - please avoid wearing your gemstones whilst cleaning as the chemicals may damage the stones.
