With the sun finally shining, Spring is upon us and the new season fashion styles and collections start blooming.
This year, designers such as Louis Vuitton have been showing a great use of natural stone bohemian style jewellery to break up floral prints and bright pastel colours. However, natural stones have been worn for centuries.
Natural stones are a common find in jewellery pieces as they are much more economically friendly than manufactured gemstones. Although some may prefer a flawless, synthetic gemstone, a great feature of jewellery with natural stones is that not one stone will be the same. All the small impurities that create lines and colour difference will make each piece unique, with its own individual colours and quirks.
Throughout centuries, many believed that certain natural gemstones had healing powers and would not only wear them as a sign of belief, but grind them into medicines. For example, pearls were believed to be the tears of god, and when worn gave impart wisdom and protect children, as well as strengthen a love relationship.
Vintage natural jewellery has now become a popular collectable, but not just as an investment. These beautiful unique stones capture not only the buyers' hearts, but Grays’ dealers hearts too.
