Birthstone for the month of September. The perfect gift for a friend or loved one.


The intense deep blue of the Lapis stone with its golden pyrite inclusions has made this a popular choice for jewellery since ancient times. Known as 'stone of the sky', Lapis is said to bestow the wearer with knowledge and wisdom.


Care for your gemstone

Lapis Lazuli is quite a soft gemstone rated at between 5 and 6 on the gemstone hardness scale (Diamond is 10). Sensitive to heat, sunlight and chemicals, Lapis Lazuli is also porous so should not be left in water for any length of time. To safely care for your gemstone, occasional cleaning with lukewarm water, the mildest soap and a soft smooth cloth is recommended. Dry immediately with an additional soft smooth cloth.


Store your Lapis earrings in a cool place with silica gel bags to keep your gemstone moisture free and away from other jewellery to avoid damage to the soft stone.
