Our journey goes on with the most precious crystal and hardest material in the world: the Diamond. Its name comes from the Greek “adamas”, which means “invincible”; tradition connects it to Venus, symbol of virtue and honesty. It has always been a symbol of strength, courage and invulnerability, which is why it is also associated with fire. On a psychic level it gives a lot of clarity and teaches to be more confident, allowing to face with more serenity the difficulties of life. Diamond is a crystal that helps to keep away the senseless fears and it helps developing a clear understanding of one’s existential situation. This stone can release happiness, light and lightness, removing negative elements and supporting the liberation of the soul through the fulfillment of karma. For centuries, in India the diamond has been considered the meditation stone of wise and pure people, a guide that helps developing the rational thinking, allowing to catch connections between the most opposite things. The diamond is a timeless stone of immense value, unmissable in almost all Nanis’ creations: in the wonderful pavé, like the one in this Elite ring, in the closures of many necklaces, like the iconic Ivy or the essential Soffio. You can find it also in the sparkling bars that combine our hand-engraved boules, as in these earrings or in this pendant. With the 18kt gold, the diamond gives life to unique jewels with a timeless charm, that you will no longer be able to give up.
A crystal from a bright and brilliant color, one of the hardest stones that can be found in Nature and one of the most beloved precious gems by the women: we are talking about the sapphire. A precious stone synonym of beauty, inner peace, mental acuity, psychic activation, and wisdom. According to some legends, the term sapphire comes from the Greek word “sàppheiros” which means “blue”, according to others, however, it would have origins linked to Jewish culture and to the word “sappir” which means “the most beautiful thing”. It is said that who is wearing a sapphire receives protection, in fact it is often used as a talisman by those who want to preserve their purity, being protected by deception, or discover betrayals caused by the loved ones. In the past it was thought that those who owned this natural stone were good and generous people, able to handle the power. These beliefs explain why, still today, sapphire is associated to a treasure that every woman would like to keep in their jewelry box and wear for special occasions.The jewelry designers that choose this beautiful stone in all their shades are always more: blue, yellow, pink, orange, green and many more are the colors of these precious gems that give life to creations with timeless charm. Also Nanis jewels are enriched by the colors and value of the sapphires: the yellow shades of this gem are the protagonist of the rings of Ipanema collection (AS10-576 AH14-515), while the details of these precious pink and green stones enrich some of the jewels of Reverse collection.
