Cubo Necklace - Lapis Lazuli
Solid 9 Karat Yellow Gold and Lapis Lazuli 'Cubo' Necklace
This bashful minimalist necklace combines a deep-blue lapis lazuli cube with a solid 9 karat yellow gold chain. The 6mm square cube of natural lapis lazuli floats freely on the fine gleaming filed curb chain, adding a subtle kinetic and tactile element to this fine necklace. A carefree piece to wear year-round.
Fun fact: Lapis lazuli is the perfect gift for September birthdays in the UK, and December birthdays in the USA.
Each cube is hand-selected for colour and quality in our Dublin studio and paired with a quality German-made curb chain in solid 9-karat yellow gold. We make it in a standard length of 40cm (16 inch), but you can order it in a 45cm (18 inch) or 50cm (20 inch) length if you prefer.
History: Lapis lazuli literally means blue rock. It is rarely solid blue but rather has white spots of calcite (the fewer the better) and even some fine brassy flecks of pyrite. Lapis Lazuli has been mined in North-Eastern Afghanistan region for over 6000 years, and is still the major source of lapis lazuli today.
Lightweight and comfortable to wear this super versatile lapis lazuli necklace is lovely on its own, but works equally well paired with a second necklace for a curated neck-stack. Quirky yet elegant this midnight blue lapis lazuli cube easily go from casual daywear to elegant evening wear. It will fit perfectly with any outfit in your wardrobe.
Metaphysical properties: Known as the stone of truth, lapis lazuli stimulates objectivity, clarity and encourages creativity. Lapis lazuli helps to confront and speak one's truth and inspires confidence.
Wear this necklace on its own, layer it up with our other necklaces, or pair it with our matching earrings.
This edgy and fashionable necklace is wonderful as a gift for someone you love, or for yourself.
