Over the years, my jewelry collection has undone a transformation. I used to love fast-fashion pieces that you could get on the cheap. But as I get older, I would much rather spend more on one piece of beautiful jewelry that I love and will last me a lifetime, than buy a bunch of cheaper pieces that are most likely going to tun my skin green (not a good look). Since I’m always on the lookout for new original pieces, I was thrilled to meet Larimar Boutique, an online shop that offers a beautiful collection of high-quality jewelry each adorned with the Larimar stone.
What is the Larimar stone?
So happy you asked! The Larimar stone is found only in the Caribbean waters of the Dominican Republic, where it is said to be a part of the legendary Atlantis. In fact, an ancient prophet once declared that what made Atlantis so special was the blue gem that held healing powers. The stone has been known to cool tempers, calm fears and relieve stress. Spiritual healers also see the stone as a powerful throat chakra that helps clear communication and provide the strength and courage needed to speak openly from the heart.
What’s so special about Larimar Boutique?
This online jewelry shop works with local craftsmen to design and handcraft each and every piece in the “cradle of Larimar”, otherwise known as the Dominican Republic. The company ensures that ethical work standards and fair wage policies are always respected, which in turns helps each craftsman follow their passion for creating beautiful jewelry while providing for their families. It’s a beautiful story from a company that I am happy to support.
What can you find at Larimar Boutique?
The online shop offers a beautiful collection of necklaces, pendants, bracelets, earrings and rings, each adorned with the soft, soothing blue stone. I was particularly smitten with this beautiful silver wrap ring. Made from 925 Sterting Silver, the band is created with six thinner bands that hold three Larimar stones. I just love the minimalistic design, just perfect for summer!
