The mandala is an enduring symbol of unity, eternity, and perfection. A cosmic diagram reminding us of the vastness both beyond and within our bodies and minds. The Daena Necklace, in cross-brushed 18K Gold Vermeil, incorporates five rose-cut Blue Sapphires in a geometrically placed mandala pattern: one in the centre with four more honouring the directions. This mandala speaks to connection… connection to ourselves, to spirit, to ancestors, to lovers, friends, and families…with love.
The magnificent and holy Sapphire, in all its celestial hues, is a stone of wisdom and royalty, of prophecy and divine favour. It is forever associated with the sacred and considered the gem of gems; a jewel steeped in the history and lore of nearly every religion. To the ancient and medieval world, Sapphire of heavenly blue signified the height of celestial hope and faith and was believed to bring protection, good fortune, and spiritual insight. The Sapphire is a symbol of power and strength, but also of kindness and wise judgment.
