Deep Blue Beauty: Lapis Jewelry to Celebrate the Beauty of the Greek Islands

Dove lapis ring in gold

Naxos, Greece. June 21, 2019. Deep, royal blue—the color of lapis lazuli—is synonymous with Greece. You see it in the Aegean Sea, in the white- and blue-painted churches and houses that dot the landscape of the Greek Islands, in the country’s flag, and in evil eye accents and décor and colorful enameled ceramics in gift shops. Given the beauty of the color and its identifiability with Greece, we’re casting a spotlight on the gem that’s naturally that color of blue. Behold, five lapis jewels to celebrate the color that belongs to Greece, my vacation spot this week.

  • I love cute motifs in jewelry because they keep pieces lighthearted and fun. @morganpatricialove has a good sense of humor in her creations. Loving the sweet little pineapples here, and the pearl bum pendants on the next screen. What maker with a sense of wit and whimsy do you like and why?

  • This beauty is from my favorite Brazilian brand, @hueb. I handled this aquamarine and diamond number at Couture and haven’t stopped thinking about it. I think it’s time to revisit it at their Manhattan showroom. What do you think?
