The suggestive romance of M’ama non M’ama with diamonds will amaze you with a sparkling new light.
Peridot, diamonds and 18k rose gold
Handmade in Italy
Its characteristic green colour is due to the presence of iron in its chemical formula. Its vitreous lustre creates a fascinating and unmistakable “dense and cloudy” effect, reminiscent of olive oil: hence the origin of the term olivine, another name used in jewellery for this gem. Used to commemorate the 16th wedding anniversary. Having been found in meteorites, Peridot has always been associated with light. In fact, the Egyptians called it the “gem of the sun”. Some believed that it protected its owner from “terrors of the night”, especially when it was set in gold. Some Peridot samples are truly ancient as they come from meteorite that have travelled our solar systems from the time it began forming. Peridot, associated to the month of August, is believed to instil power and influence in the wearer.
Diamonds always occur as isolated crystals, in shapes that tend towards a perfect octahedron, sometimes with rounded edges or even with an opaque skin. The name derives from the Greek ‘adamas’, which means unbreakable or invincible, probably because of its excellent strength. They are formed at great depths in the Earth’s mantle, in high–pressure, high-temperature conditions. The formation of diamonds is due to volcanic eruptions through narrow pipes that rise vertically from unknown depths and grow progressively in diameter until they reach the surface. Given the rarity of the stones and therefore an increase in value, the dimensions and the weight of the stone are as fundamental to the price as the colour, purity and cut.
