Their beautiful story:
Mysterious and varied, opal, this stone with a thousand reflections has played a big role in the legends of the greatest civilizations. As a talisman, it has long been the bearer of beauty, success and happiness.
For the ancient Greeks, it held the powers of clairvoyance and prophecy.
For the Romans, it symbolized hope and purity.
In his monumental encyclopedia Natural History published around the year 77, Pliny the Elder called opal a wonderful gem because it contained in it the qualities and colors of all other precious stones.
Legend has it that Marc Antony dreamed of acquiring the blue opal from Senator Nonius in order to give it to the beautiful Cleopatra. The opal was so valuable that Nonius preferred exile rather than having to part with his stone.

All our jewels are purified of the energies that they were able to accumulate (purification by salt) before being offered to you.
Our treasures have lived, and that's what makes them so charming. Despite our careful restoration and cleaning of our jewelry, they may show some traces of life. If these turn out to be notable, we will obviously let you know in the description of the jewel.
