RUBELLITE 18CT GOLD EARCUFF
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 Foz do Iguaçu.
‘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: Three marquise or navette-cut Brazilian rubellites
They're in a curved design on the earcuff, which fits neatly behind the lobe or can be worn dropped down.
Brazil is known for producing the best quality tourmalines in the world — and the rare rubellites are red-hued tourmalines. However not all red tourmalines are known as 'rubellites', only the richest and most vibrant.
Properties: Rubellites are strongly associated with the Anja (heart) chakra, enabling the wearer to put aside personal challenges to embrace uncomplicated companionship and universal love.
It's also particularly useful during busy or stressful periods, or when you feel as if you're giving more support than you've got emotional energy for.
Care: Avoid steam or ultrasonic cleaners and wash rubellites gently in warm soapy water.
(Please note: All the pieces in this collection are one-off)
