[ sapphire ]
Feel protected during these uncertain times, and look forward with hope and faith to a positive future for humanity.
The magnificent Sapphire, in all its celestial hues, is a stone of wisdom and royalty.
To the medieval world, Sapphire signified hope and faith, and was believed to bring protection, good fortune and spiritual insight. Kings wore Sapphires around their necks as a powerful defense from harm. They preserved the wearer from envy, and attracted divine favor.
A great poet once described the sapphire as “the blue of a clear sky just minutes after sundown.”

dunia :: earth
[ precious gem collection ]
The Maasai have lived in harmony with the earth for as long as they have been alive, walking miles through the savannah in silence and solitude, with only their cattle and their thoughts as company.
Imagining the peace felt as long strides are taken towards the horizon, the grounding sensation of soil beneath their feet, and the warmth of the African sun on their back, lead us to dream up our DUNIA collection. These limited edition pieces are made from the precious gems that our earth produces naturally, which hold healing powers that can bring peace to one’s heart.
This collection has been sitting quietly, waiting for the moment to show itself. In light of the collective anxiety felt across humanity today, it seemed it was time to share these calming totems from nature that have been handmade by Maasai women, who know our earth so well.
This collection is a celebration of the earth, and an aspiration to be more like the Maasai tribe, holding ourselves with grace and peace during hard times, and being one with our earth.
