With love for others is about spreading love, how you can buy a jewel for yourself or as a gift, and at the same time being a part of helping someone who is in deep need. 

The beautiful stone of lapis lazuli was imported to Europe at the end of the Middle Ages. Here it was ground into powder and then made into the most exquisite, exclusive and expensive of blue pigments – ultramarine. It was beloved for its ability to almost shine on canvas, and for the color not to fade. It was such a noble good that oftentimes it was even prized over gold. It became especially popular during the Renaissance where the pigment was often used in depictions of the Virgin Mary and her blue robe. Other famous artworks containing the beautiful blue includes Vermeer’s Girl with a Pearl Earring, which we already have been inspired by in our earlier collections.

Blue Cameo Bracelet Gold

5.650,00 kr

Blue Cameo Bracelet with a gold plated robe chain. 

The blue cameo is a tribute to Afrodite as a protector of the Sailors and the robe chain a symbol of the robes on the sailboat. 

Afrodite is today best-known as the ‘goddess of love,’ but among the ancient Greeks she was also important in maritime religion, trade and travel.

She was carried aboard ships, worshipped at harbour side sanctuaries, and believed tohelp to bring whatever one desired, whether land, love or good weather. Her cult travelled from port to port around the Mediterranean, where Afrodite was merged with the Roman Venus.

Among sailors, who navigated by these stars, Afrodite-Venus was specially honoured at the opening of the sailing season in the Mediterranean springtime. She is therefor associated to the Greeks who took to the sea once again to trade, fish and travel over the summer months. 

The cameo is crafted in Torre del Greco and the jewellery is assembled in Valenza, Piedmont.
