Morning Everyone!

I hope you had a great weekend! Boy, it has been hot here. I feel we have missed most of Spring and just entered right into Summer. 90 degrees and humid! Today, however, I have a collaboration to share with you that I am excited about. I suppose you know by now, I like jewelry. Unique, vintage, or one of a kind are my favorites. Accessories can certainly make an outfit, and this Larimar Blue Stone Cuff certainly adds to my look today. When I was contacted, I went back and forth a bit, as I wanted a cuff or bracelet to add to my jewelry collection. I do have small wrists though, and looking at them, I thought they would just fall right off my arm. Luckily, the metal adjusts to your wrist size, and I was able to select the one I wanted. This 3 band silver open cuff is elegant, classic  the Larimar stone certainly takes center stage. I love the 3 layers of silver with the beautiful sea blue stone in the center, its very striking!

As I looked at the pieces, I saw them as small works of art. Stylized and carefully crafted, the Larimar Stones can only be found in the Dominican Republic in the crystal blue waters of the Caribbean Sea. Although, I would have loved to be sitting in the sand, cocktail in hand, overlooking the Caribbean Sea for this photo shoot, time and circumstance did not permit! Instead, we were in Uptown Charlotte, with sculptures and art around us, taking in the lines, artist’s style, and composition of the art, much like the jewelry’s artistic nature. Behind me it was a coincidence to find a glass sculpture, circular in shape, much like this lovely silver cuff/bracelet.

This is why I love artistic pieces of Jewelry that are unique works of art. From the site: “Larimar Stones are known for its blue and turquoise shades with patterns of white streaks” The stone is known as the “Stone of the Atlantis” and to have healing properties. ” Larimar, also known as “Stefilia’s Stone” is first discovered by a Spanish Priest named Father Miguel Domingo Fuertes Loren in 1916.It is said that Larimar came from the sea and later was formed in the earth’s volcanic movements.” You can read more about the origin of the  Larimar Stones HERE and HERE 

Today, I am wearing one of my favorite floral dresses from ASOS, the blue and grey tones of the flowers just waiting for a complimentary piece of jewelry/ The Larimar Open Cuff is worn with elegance in mind, the  dress fitted and flowing outward, trumpet style at the bottom. I love the signature turquoise blue color and thought it the perfect complement with my summer dress, block heels , silver drop earrings, and grey Rebecca Minkoff crossbody.

I could see this bracelet also worn for the summer with an all white look, or perhaps a white linen tunic and flowy white pants. I will be taking it to the beach with me, and it can remind me of both art and the beauty of the sea. I am sure you will be seeing this bracelet styled again!

    Love the Larimar dear Jess. We spent our honeymoon at the Domincan Republik and my hubby gave me a pair of earrings with Larimar as a honeymoon gift.

    Hi Jodie! Thank you! Yes, I think it would be great with an all white look, jeans, worn many different ways. I was glad it was adjustable as I have skinny wrists and sometimes bracelets dont work for me. absolutely! Great to have versatile jewelry!
    Have a great week

    Wow…that bracelet is lovely, especially with that dress. But you’re right, it really will go with everything! I’ve been trying so hard to not be as matchy with jewelry, so that I can wear them no matter what!!
