Well today, my happy jewellery lovers, I’ve found preciousness in the tiny details in Rio de Janeiro. Day and night, I have been rocking this 18K gold LOLA necklace by LEAL JOIAS. With my initial surrounded by 2.5 mm Emerald, Tanzanite, Sapphire, Amethyst, Peridot, Tourmaline and Orange Citrine Quartz gemstones, I feel the inherent properties of the jewels protecting me.
Colourful jewellery like the LOLA necklace by Brazilian jewellery brand LEAL JOIAS has surely taken the spotlight! I can’t help but feel that after the unbelievably challenging year we have just had, colourful jewels have played a big role in getting us through it. When it comes to jewels, we need all the cheer we can get! The Lola Necklace was created based on LEAL JOIAS founders Patricia and Paola’s desire to design a “tattoo piece” that would adorn the skin as if drawn like a tattoo. To reach this goal, they chose to work with a Nylon Thread used by Brazilian fishermen that creates the illusion of floating gemstones on the skin.
Lately, many of us have been drawn to invisible or miniature jewellery and many of you I am sure remember my diamond ring on the nylon. I truly think minimalism in jewellery is fascinating and appealing for our modern lifestyle.
Looking at this rainbow choker, it is impossible not to talk about colour in jewellery! Generally speaking, colour is associated with positivity, life, happiness and joy! So when I think of colourful jewels and especially this delicate choker, my mood automatically lifts. The energy of simple things, such as adding colour to my daily outfits, puts me in the most enthusiastic state of mind, helping me feel positive and grounded throughout my day.
Amethyst, topaz, emerald, and all the other enchanting rainbow gems in this LOLA necklace, influence and impact the way we feel and the way we perceive the world. Amethyst, for example, helps me find the balance between mind, body, and spirit, bringing calm and serenity. With this choker, you don’t need to pick just one favourite gemstone, you can have them all!
