I don’t know if you noticed, but I have a thing for gemstone rings. I wear one ring in particular in almost every outfit post I’ve done so far. What I love about gemstones is each of them has a meaning or “a healing power” within them. Now even though I’m not what you’d call a New Age spiritualist, I do value things with a story behind them. So when Larimar Bliss asked me to partner with them on an outfit post, I was both honored and thrilled, especially after learning the story behind the Larimar stone.
The Story Behind the Larimar Stone
The Larimar stone is found only in the Caribbean waters of the Dominican Republic. It’s said to be a part of the legendary Atlantis, which is why some know it as the ‘Atlantis Stone’. Originally it was discovered in 1916 by a Spanish priest but was forgotten until 1974 when it was rediscovered by two explorers by the beaches of Barahona. The explorers were attracted to its soothing blue shades and white patterns. To them the vibrant color of the gemstone resembled the sunlight dancing beneath the Caribbean Sea. Nowadays the stone’s allure lies in its beautiful color, rarity, and healing properties. Wearing a Larimar stone is believed to bring you peace and serenity.
So did I feel serene during this photo shoot? I can honestly say, I did! Not that I’m usually in a frenzy when I shoot photos for my blog! But I did take fewer photos than usual for this post because I felt like I got the shot within just a few takes. Was it because of the power of the Larimar stone? I like to think so. In any case, I love my new Larimar ring. I’m already starting to wear it almost everyday. It just seems to go with everything in my closet. Today I chose to wear it with a simple white shirt and jeans. All I needed to make a statement was the beautiful color of those stones.
