Pearls have an ancient history of reverence; a legacy of elegant beauty. Natural pearls are formed in the wild when an external irritant, a grain of sand or other tiny particle of organic matter breaches the shell of an oyster or shelled mollusk. Once this irritant has gained entrance within the dark fleshy confines of the interior life of the oyster, it goes to work protecting itself. If it cannot be expelled, it begins to ‘bandage’ the grain, coating it with concentric rings of calcium carbonate, named ‘Narce.’ Each layer that is built up forms the shape of the pearl, awash in a brilliant iridescence, a beauty born of a tiny trespass. Thusly, a pearl has at its center, the object of its creation, a foreign intruder, as small as a pin prick or an eyelash. A cocoon of beauty surrounding the ‘otherness’ that has become integrated into the self.

Due to how a pearl is formed, within the dark confines of its shell, it has come to symbolize processes of the hidden self, such as wisdom through experience and the building of personal integrity. It is also considered a ‘gemstone’ of protection and love, often given as romantic gifts.

Here, peacock pearls are paired with faceted Onyx and glittering Black Spinel. Because of their protective and emotional soothing qualities, this special strand is imbued with the poignant properties of the earth and the sea.

Onyx is best known for being a natural stone that act as a kind of 'psychic armor' against the negativity of others. It is also used to sooth grief and heartbreak. They are wonderful grounding stones and stones of self mastery, enabling its wearers to have mental and spiritual focus.

Spinel is a potent stone for healing and protection: working to help clear intense emotions such as anger and rage, it imbues its wearer with a sense of calm. It is also used to heal the physical body and has powerful metaphysical qualities, helping its wearer to feel strong, assisting with perseverance, especially when dealing with issues from the past that have become difficult to overcome. Much like Onyx, it also helps repel negativity from others.

This is a limited edition strand.

This strand measures 47 inches long from end to end. At its closure, our largest double sided eye talisman adds an additional layer of psychic protection and can be worn at the back of the neck or on the front of the body.  

This 'Opera Length' makes it perfect for wearing doubled up as well as at its full length. Designed to compliment other jewels in the Mourning/Ritual bead line it also layers beautifully with other BloodMilk necklaces. Its weight also makes it perfect to use for meditation or ritual practices.
