The Green Empress Bracelet draws on the Empress collection's aim to make the wearer of each piece feel beautiful, creative, and courageous (read about the first one here and the second one here). I love how the natural materials in this bracelet come together to create a distinct and elegant piece.
This one-of-a-kind bracelet features six green cinnabar beads, which are carved with an Asian design, three natural seeds, which have been coated to protect their striking beauty, a large white coral globe, and three pyrite rondelles I've polished to a nice luminosity. Two TierraCast Turkish-style gold rondelles frame the largest of the seeds, which is a lovely shade of golden mustard. There are other hints of gold in this bracelet including the three textured brass discs nestled between the coral globe and chunky seed.
For those who enjoy stone lore, Pyrite, also known as Fool's Gold, is grounding, encourages positivity and the release of old emotional baggage. It is also a protective and enhances one's "intelligence, mental stability, logic, analysis, creativity, memory, and psychic development" (source here). Pyrite is associated with the sun signs Gemini and Virgo. Coral is known for its ability to bring internal peace, settle emotions, and aids intuition, visualization, and the circulatory and nervous systems (source here). Coral is associated with the sun sign Libra.
