Birthstone Crystals and their Meanings

Birthstone Crystals and their Meanings

amethystLavinia Untea
Birthstone crystals are a beautiful and meaningful way to celebrate the birth of a loved one. Each month has a corresponding birthstone that is said to have special powers and meanings. For example, January's birthstone is the garnet, which symbolizes friendship and trust. It is said to bring good luck and health to the wearer. Similarly, October's birthstone is the opal, which represents hope and innocence. It is believed to bring good luck and help with emotional healing. Birthstone crystals are not only beautiful but also have a deep meaning and significance. Each crystal is a powerful talisman that can be worn as a reminder of the special bond shared between the giver and the receiver. Whether you’re looking for a birthday gift, an anniversary present, or just a special way to show someone you care, birthstone crystals are a perfect choice.

Martisor - A celebration of Spring

1 MarchLavinia Untea

 In modern times, and especially in urban areas, the Mărțișor lost most of its talisman properties and became more a symbol of friendship, love, appreciation and respect. 

Do you have friends, acquaintances or relatives of Romanian, Moldavian, Macedonian, Greek or Bulgarian origin? Do you want to surprise them? Then this is the gift you are looking for. On March 1, give the 'Martisor', 'Martenitsa ", 'мартеница ' or 'μάρτης' to them and they will be surprised and delighted. Do not forget to leave one “Martisor” for yourself.

A day in a jewellery maker lifeLavinia Untea
Want to know what a day in the life of a jewellery maker looks like? Here’s a little glimpse at my day today! My days normally start with coffee and waking up the kids for breakfast, prepare lunch boxes and driving them to school (except for weekends, of course). Once I have done that, it’s off to my studio for me. Then to my absolute favourite part of the day – making and sending out goodies to my clients! Some days are the same, some days are different, but I am so blessed to be doing what I love.
