Lapis Lazuli

Lapis Lazuli

“Any colour as long as it’s blue”

A colour once more precious than gold, blue pigment, was highly prized as a status symbol where owning and displaying paintings in this intense shade was an opulent sign of wealth. 

The original Ultra-Marine (meaning "Beyond The Sea")  pigment was only achieved precious lapis lazuli from Afghanistan where it’s first use was seen in cave paintings. 

The natural mineral was so vivid it was believed to be a piece of the sky fallen to Earth.

Falling in love with blue over and over again, we are celebrating this captivating colour by showing the work of a range of artists using blue in a special piece of jewellery.
