In our ‘Crystals at a Glance‘ series we provide you with an overview of some of our favourite crystals – precious and semi-precious stones that we love including in our designs because they add so much beauty and meaning.
We are big fans of wearing jewellery that represents something beyond aesthetic finesse. And the energetic properties linked to a stone even play into our choices during design. The connection we feel to a stone, or a piece is what guides us.
We hope that when you purchase Violet Gray jewellery, that you too feel connected and cherish these talisman for years to come.
