What do we wear Lapis Lazuli with?

Due to the deep and charming blue of this stone, it cannot be limited to one season or one occasion. Although its color may seem like a bold choice, with a little creativity an outfit can come to life with the right jewelry.

Whether the stone is set in gold or silver, its hue suits both warm and cool tones. Therefore, it will look wonderful in contrast to the complexion of the wearer


Although today it is most often found in jewelry, it is no secret that in the past it had many other less common purposes. For example, Cleopatra herself used Lapis Lazui as her favorite blush. The stone, once ground very finely, becomes a superb natural pigment that does not lose its intensity.

This quality of the Lapis Lazuli stone revolutionized including painting and mural art. The pigment made from this stone is called "ultramarine". Its name is fully deserved due to the impressive color. At the same time, due to the fact that the stone is relatively rare, this pigment turns out to be particularly expensive.
