Searching for the ocean stone

The last time I was in the Dominican Republic, I was seeking what every jewelry enthusiast looks for on this tiny island— Larimar, the exquisite blue stone that is only found in the island’s mountainsides. Discovered just a little less than forty years ago, it has become a source of work and pride for so many locals. You can mine for it yourself, although I don’t recommend it if you’re claustrophobic.

I met an old designer who told me about his long love for Larimar. He told me how when he was a young boy, it used to wash up on shore, with the shells and other stones. He thought it was made of the water, since it matched the vibrant turquoise of the sea. He and his brother called it "piedra de mar," ocean stone, and would bring it home in handfuls to their mother as a gift. She kept them in an old glass jar on her bedroom dresser. Today it sits on his beat-up work table. He works day in and day out with this beautiful stone, the gem of his country.

Our Piedra de Mar collection is a tribute to these talented craftspeople. Set in .925 sterling silver, each piece is unique-every hue of blue a little different, each vein of white moving in a slightly different direction. Don’t miss this amazing opportunity to own something so rare and beautiful.
