Songbird Sara Jewelry

Lapis Lazuli is a regal stone that has been adored and prized for thousands of years. One of the earliest mentions of this deep blue gem is in the legend of the ancient Mesopotamian goddess of love, Inanna, who traveled to and from the underworld. On her initial descent, the legend describes her adorned with jewelry made of lapis lazuli. The ancient Egyptians viewed lapis as a sign of high rank and royalty, and also used it in ground powder form as a cosmetic. Renascence painters used lapis in ground form as well to create a blue pigment called "ultramarine". Ultramarine was rarer and more valued more highly than gold, so if someone was able to commission a painting that utilized ultramarine, it was a sign of their great wealth and status. Michelangelo used large amounts of this pigment in the frescoes of the Sistine Chapel.

This elegant and sleek vintage stick pin is crafted from 18k yellow gold and features a vibrant lapis lazuli sugarloaf cabochon in a bezel setting. The head of the pin measures 10.15mm x 7.85mm x 7mm and the total weight is 1.7 grams. I especially love the twisted pin, which would be lovely and secure as a lapel adornment!
