Rose Quartz is known for its feminine beauty, and symbolic of ‘love’ and is commonly associated with platonic, unconditional, romantic, and motherly feelings. Because of it’s boasting gentle shades of pink, Rose Quartz has been used in some of the most eye-catching everyday jewelry out there and has its roots in its mythological relation to Ancient Greece and the goddess of love, Aphrodite. Some of the well-known myths of Ancient Greece visual the gemstone as a strong healer and symbol of passion and devotion, so it’s altogether fitting that we still recognize its romantic qualities to this day. The mythology surrounding Rose Quartz is characteristic of its healing properties on the human mind, body, and soul. The powerful effect of this warm, peaceful, and romantic stone are all centered around matters of the heart.  Its energetic sign is that of unconditional love – said to help open the heart chakra.

From dainty stacking bracelets to Koyoto earrings, here’s how to embrace this iconic, powerful gemstone and incorporate it into your style “, – shares she. “Look around and you’ll see that from the runway to the street when it comes to earrings, anything goes; single,

mismatched, multiples. I prefer large earrings by choosing soft, delicate Rose Quartz pieces to complement my outfit, accentuated by the sparkle of diamonds”, – mentions Katerina.

Nothing can transform your outfit like a show-stopping piece of jewelry. The pastel pink hue of Rose Quartz is a great way to add an expressive touch to any evening ensemble, in a subtle but powerful way to create an eye-catching, feminine look. “If you’re looking to turn heads, go for a pair of striking Rose Quartz Koyoto earrings that request for more attention, and add a simple diamond bracelet for a look that’s guaranteed to steal the spotlight.

“In Japan, cherry blossoms are called sakura”

The inspiration for creating “Grey Roses” earrings came from Kyoto, Japan’s capital for 1,200 years. Surrounded by natural beauty and scenery that is transformed by each change of season, Kyoto’s sense of aesthetics has been shaped by its long history. Combining Kyoto’s refined aesthetics with modern sensibilities, Thomas has created a completely new concept in jewelry. In Japan, cherry blossoms are called ‘sakura’ and are considered a special flower for the people and the country. “Grey Roses” earrings have been crafted from white gold and feature intricate cherry blossom flowers and Japanese shoulder boards. A transition between the “shoulder boards” is made

from diamonds and completes perfectly this unique piece of jewelry.
