Gemstone of the Week: Chrysocolla

THIS SPRING, UPDATE YOUR STYLE WITH A TRANQUIL BLUE GEMSTONE – CHRYSOCOLLA

chrysocolla gemstone maya collectionThis spring, travel has been an inspiration for LAGOS’ newest designs. Our Maya collection, gets a fresh update this season with the addition of a new gemstone: Chrysocolla.

This new gem was chosen by designer Steven Lagos to represent travel and escape. “I’m always searching for gemstones that take people to a different place. Chrysocolla is one of those gems. Its unique color creates almost a water effect, it looks like islands floating in the water. It reminds me of the scene when looking out of an airplane window.”

Because of this, we think Chrysocolla is the perfect gem to pack for your next trip. A bold pair of chandelier earrings and a long necklace to layer are the ideal travel accessories.

The unique coloring of this gem pairs nicely with other stones like Turquoise.  We love the idea of pairing Chrysocolla with other blue gems or even diamonds for a sparkling contrast. Get creative with your vacation style!

Aside from its beautiful color and versatility, Chrysocolla is also known as a calming and healing stone. It’s known for encouraging clarity of thought, a peaceful calm, and compassion. Found in South America and Africa, this stone often varies in color, making each piece of Chrysocolla jewelry unique and special.

louise-roe-lagos

Spending time with the one you love on Valentine’s Day is always romantic and memorable, but this year is extra special for Louise Roe and her husband, Mackenzie. It’s the first Valentine’s Day they’ll celebrate as a married couple. Louise can’t wait to see what her husband has in store!

“We like to keep Valentine’s Day true to who we are as a couple – spontaneous, unconventional, and of course a little cheeky!”

To prepare, Louise is choosing her favorite LAGOS styles to create a chic date-night look. She created a luxe look that featured gold and diamonds, but also included pieces inspired by love.

“This year for Valentine’s Day I’ll be wearing pieces from two of their recent collections. The Enso collection (‘Enso’ is the Japanese word for circle), symbolizes unbroken and everlasting strength – certainly something I strive to achieve within my marriage. I love this mixed metal ring with interlocked circles, it’s actually so romantic when you think about what it means!”

Louise also plans to wear Embrace stud earrings, ring & pendant necklace, which is a beautiful sterling silver collection with ribbons of 18k gold and diamonds.

See more of Louise’s style and get inspired for Valentine’s Day on her blog!
