It is said that Cleopatra was particularly fond of this stone, so it makes sense that Olivia incorporates emeralds into her collections. Hindus believe that those offering emeralds to the god Krishna will be rewarded. Since “givers are high in Heaven,” they will receive “Knowledge of the Soul and the Eternal.” The gods richly reward such generous giving. Hindu teachings associate emerald with the planet Mercury.
Emeralds represent loyalty in friendship and in love. It is said to repel negative energy and bad influences and promote clairvoyance to he or she who wears it. Emeralds increase wisdom and patience. If worn near the fourth chakra, that of the heart, it soothes our emotions.Shop emeralds
The ruby has been called the most precious of the 12 stones created by God. Hindus regard the ruby, known as “the king of precious stones,” as more valuable than any other gem. The Mani Mala describes the Kalpa Tree, a symbolic offering to the Hindu gods, as composed entirely of precious stones. Made of sapphires, diamonds, topazes and emeralds and other gems, this magnificent tree would bear rubies as fruit. One of the ceremonial offerings Hindus leave at various temples consists of gems and jewellery. Regarding those who gift rubies, the Harita Smriti says: “He who worships Krishna with rubies will be reborn as a powerful emperor. If with a small ruby, he will be born a king.”
Ruby is a powerful stone to shield against negative energy, psychic attack, and energy vampirism, especially of the heart energy. Working with Ruby one may feel that all sense of limitation has been removed, strengthening courage, joy, leadership qualities and selfless work in all spiritual endeavours.
As a symbol of passion, ruby makes an ideal romantic gift.Shop Rubies

Lapis Lazuli is one of the most sought after stones in use since man's history began. Its deep, celestial blue remains the symbol of royalty and honour, gods and power, spirit and vision. It is a universal symbol of wisdom and truth.
Lapis Lazuli was among the most highly prized tribute paid to Egypt, obtained from the oldest mines in the world, worked from around 4000 B.C. and still in use today. Referenced in the Old Testament as sapphire (unknown in that part of the ancient world), Lapis Lazuli is most likely the fifth stone in the original breastplate of the High Priest, as well as those of later times.
