Discovered in the Dominican Republic after an earthquake dislocated pieces into a river, Larimar gets its name from an early artisan combining his daughter’s name “Larissa” with “mar”, the Spanish word for ocean. Considered a healing stone, Larimar’s brilliant blue color and lustre has inspired many generations of the Dominican Republic’s artisans. Now we can bring you a collection of this beautiful stone worked into expertly crafted sterling silver to set off it’s blue coloring.
