29 Apr Minitials ♡ gems
As you might know we have a weak spot for precious stones and gemstones. We photographed our entire AEON collection with the most beautiful crystals and precious stones.
When we encountered Janine from the Pret a Pregnant blog with her beautiful little baby Jade-Ming and Jade Lew (another contributor of Pret a Pregnant) contacted us, we got inspired.
Jade, is in our opinion one of the most beautiful stones and we love the colour. Taking a quick look around both our houses and we weren’t a bit surprised about the amount of jade colored home accessories we have. ♡
For Janine we made a beautiful JADE earring, which she can wear and keep forever, until little Jade Ming is old enough to receive this heirloom.
Gemstone expert and lover Romario tell us;
“The most well known version of Jade is the green one. But did you know that it also comes in many other colors? Like grey, black, red, purple, pink, white, yellow or brown. You can recognize real Jade because of its greasy surface. But like in jewelry there are also a lot of fake gemstones. These are synthetic and thus not the same as the real ones. They don’t have the same effect and quality.
Jade is known and loved not only for its magnificent colour but also for its protection against physical and mental injuries. It is commonly worn as an amulet. Jade also stimulates detox of the kidneys, which is for us in the Netherlands probably very handy since we just had the celebration of KingsDay, hahaha. Jade also gives protection and good prosperity. Who wouldn’t want that!
Precious and semi precious stones take negative energy from their environment. Therefore it is very important to cleanse them every once in a while.
You can do this on severval different ways. You can rinse them with could running water. Or when it is full moon, place your stones somewhere where they can catch the light and energy of the moon.”
Thank you Romario!
And whether you believe in this sort of things or not, it sure doesn’t harm to have a beautiful gemstone in your house which is also a great interior accessory with a healing function.
Love M&M and R :-)
