Treasure Of Mermaids

I made myself a ring today..

A gorgeous aquamarine that I've been saving for quite some time now, trying to come up with a design that could do this stone justice.  In the end, I decided to set this stunning cab simply, keeping the sterling humble and letting the stone sing, as it deserves.

The colour of the ocean and of the skies, the aquamarine is said to have life-giving properties and legend has its origins in the treasure chest of mermaids.  Like the ocean, it gives and takes away..all a natural part of the circle of life as it is ever changing, never static.

Life lately seems to rush on by and if you're not careful, you might miss the very soul and essence of it.  Take the time, close your eyes and breathe deeply.  If you listen closely, you can almost hear the tides coming and going.  Feel the cool breeze on your skin and the sand under your feet.  Turn your face up to the sky and promise yourself to let your heart lead you forward.  Live with no regrets.

This is aquamarines gift to you and me.  

Hoping you have the time to listen to your heart this weekend.
