Lapis & Pearl Necklace

Gain favors by gifting this classic colorful piece to yourself or loved one. Lapis lazuli, the "sapphire" of the ancients, was favored for its deep, blue color often flecked with "gold" (iron pyrite). The Egyptians regarded lapis as a sacred stone of celestial origin and a symbol for truth. Often worn as a protective talisman, lapis was also believed to have strong powers of attraction and the ability to help the wearer gain favors and realize hopes. This necklace made of lapis tubes, pearls and vermeil spacers, measures 16 inches long. Because these are natural semi-precious stones, no two stones are alike and may vary slightly in color.

Make it a set! Pair with our Lapis & Pearl Earrings.
