DOUBLE EMERALD 18CT GOLD NECKLACE
Designed to celebrate the beauty of Brazil, the Exotica (meaning: exotic in Portuguese) Collection is handmade in 18ct gold and set with precious stones, sourced from Brazil.
‘Brazil is one of the richest lands in the whole world for stones and belief in their healing powers is part of our culture, so this collection is the heart of the brand, combining my minimalist aesthetic with pieces of my home country’ — Adriana Chede
Stones: Two 5x2.5mm-cut rectangular emeralds, secured at both ends on a recycled 18ct gold chain (40-45cm/16-18in).
Properties: Known for their rich green tone, emeralds are prized for their wide-ranging spiritual benefits, helping with inspiration, wisdom, patience and peace. Ancient Romans dedicated emeralds to Venus, the goddess of love, hence its name ‘the sacred stone of Venus’ and its connection with the Anahata (heart) chakra.
Care: Avoid steam or ultrasonic cleaners and wash emeralds gently in warm soapy water. Make sure you don’t keep it stored in contact with other jewellery as it’s a relatively soft stone.
