Gemstone Spotlight: Lapis Lazuli
A stand-out gem, Lapis Lazuli mirrors the wonders of the night sky with dozens of tiny gold pyrite flecks on cobalt blue. It’s a wear-everywhere and wear-with-everything stone, but if you’re looking for some inspiration on how to style this deep blue colour, you’ve come to the right place.
To really show off those gorgeous gold flecks and the intricate markings of Lapis, choose our Stilla Locket. Representing strength and courage as well as holding a personal photo or two inside, this really is a talking-point necklace and a modern heirloom in the making. Can be worn alone or over collars for a shirt-and-necklace combo that’s understated chic.
The rules of a neckmess?
Pick your fave and build your mess around it. In this case, our Lapis Stilla Pendant stays in the spotlight. A celebration of vibrancy and a Kate Middleton fave, this pendant features a faceted stone that reflects the light as you move. Layer with a mix of short gold necklaces in different styles for a relaxed, cool-girl look. While some prefer dainty, elegant pieces, others have a soft spot for chunky chains. It’s up to you, but don’t forget that matching ring to bring it all together.
The jewellery world’s latest hype?
Colourful enamel that looks good enough to eat. Enamel is playful, nostalgic and adds intrigue to any outfit, and pairing with gemstones takes your look to the next level. Stack-ready rings and everyday earrings in polished cerulean enamel will complement the deep-blue tones of your Lapis. Team with a pared-back white shirt to ensure all eyes are on the blue, and you.
Good to Goddess
What’s one piece you can count on to bring good vibes to your day? The Orbit Lapis Necklace of course. This beauty was born into our Soulful Stones collection and is a stand-out piece for its mini faceted stones set on our best-selling gold chain. Used by healers for thousands of years, most are drawn to the spiritual power this necklace (and matching bracelet) holds. If spirituality isn’t your thing, then focus on how good this set will look with your summer wardrobe: white tailoring, cute crops, blue denim, floral dresses. Throw on some gold hoops and watch your look go from good to goddess.
