Lapis lazuli is a combination of two languages: lapis is Latin for stone, and azul is Arabic for blue. It also comes from the Persian word lazhward meaning blue. Lapis lazuli has been used for adornment for as long as humans have been decorating their bodies. Together with artisans from around the world, we have put together a unique collection of Lapiz Lazuli Bracelets we hope you enjoy.
Lapis lazuli is wonderful to give as a handmade gift, for some traditions consider it a gemstone of friendship and truth. Early Egyptians used lapis as a cosmetic; they also powdered the stone to use as paint. The unique blue hue of lapis continues to inspire many a hand-woven area rug from India.
Set in pearl bracelets, lapis lazuli casts a spell of marine beauty. We're certain you will be captivated by the original designs that artisans have contributed to the Novica Lapis Lazuli Bracelet collection.
