Pierced earrings with blue Lapis Lazuli inlaid into 18 Karat yellow gold frames. These earring measure 12 x 12 millimeters.

Lapis lazuli is a stone prized since antiquity for its intense blue color. The finest color is intense blue, lightly dusted with small flecks of golden pyrite.

Lapis lazuli has been mined in the Badakhshan province of Afghanistan for 6,500 years. Trade in the stone is ancient enough for lapis jewelry to have been found at Predynastic Egyptian sites, and lapis beads at neolithic burials in Mehrgarh, the Caucasus, and even as far from Afghanistan as Mauritania.

The Romans believed that lapis was a powerful aphrodisiac. In the Middle Ages, it was thought to keep the limbs healthy, and free the soul from error, envy and fear.
