Jewelry: Lapis Lazuli

I AM BACK IN JAPAN!!!!
I have MISSED blogger/youtube SOOOOO much!!!
------------------------
Lapis Lazuli:

The ancient Romans believed it was a powerful aphrodisiac. In the Middle Ages, people thought it would free the soul from error, envy and fear.
(thanks, wikipedia for the info!)
I just think it is BEAUTIFUL.

Isn't this a beautiful necklace????

Such an intense blue... and the perfect length that goes so well with what I normally wear...

Where did I get this necklace?
It was a BIRTHDAY PRESENT FROM MY BEST FRIEND!
I wrote about him before here.

Yeah, you read that right. A MAN picked out this set for me. He bought it for me while he was on a business trip to Chile (where some of the best quality lapis are mined).

You wanna know what else was in that set?

A beautiful pair of earrings...
(yes, I have a lot of piercings. Yes, I LOOOOVE earrings)

A beautiful matching bracelet...

My birthday was in March, but I hadn't worn these pieces before. They looked so beautiful in the box that I was terrified of losing them!!! OMG they are even more beautiful then I imagined!!!!

Let's take a closer look at that bracelet, shall we?


OOOH LOOK at the OTHER BEAUTIFUL BRACELET!!

It was a Christmas present from the SAME person!

I'm a lucky girl! I have a best friend who has FANTASTIC taste!

Side note: When I explained to him about swapping, he actually understood why I enjoyed shopping and finding stuff for other girls. Yeah, he likes shopping that much!

Oh dear, I need to wear this set more often! It is truly beautiful!!! Thank you so much!

Do you have any jewelry which you simply adore? (aside from wedding rings/engagement rings)

xoxo, K
