Blue has a way of cooling and calming the soul. Whether blue evokes feelings of sea or sky, any designer will tell you that it is the color you choose to soothe… As far as colors go, blue is especially popular here at the beach, where we are surrounded by water (east and west) and above us a big, wide Carolina Blue sky.
Kyanite – a unique gemstone -- gets its name from the Greek word kuanos, meaning deep blue. Mined from sedimentary rocks or other formations, kyanite is believed to hold positive energy and is probably best known for its balancing properties. And while its colors include indigo, green and black – the blue – an icy, glacial, deep blue, streaked with white -- is arguably its most beautiful version of itself.
Kyanite gemstones make stunning, unique pieces. As a stone, it can stand alone in a solitary sterling setting for a pair of classic earrings, a pendant, or gemstone ring. And since blue complements and contrasts with an array of colors, as a gemstone it is frequently combined with so many others to create showstopper pieces! Complementary colors, when used together in color schemes, are especially dynamic and pleasing to the eye. Some of our most recent additions here at Beach Treasures in Duck have kyanite sharing the stage with druzy quartz, jasper, blue topaz, pearl…just to name a few!
Two of our most popular jewelry designers, Chris Bales and Charles Albert frequently use kyanite in their designer creations. Wearable art to be sure, many of these pieces are well suited to be the centerpiece of your outfit. A multi-gemstone bracelet featuring kyanite will work across the seasons and the wardrobe! A multi-stone bracelet can be the colorful compliment to your favorite weekend jeans and fall sweater just as easily as a statement pendant can be THE pop of color when you're all decked out in crisp white linen.
I invite you to browse all of our kyanite jewelry – displayed among the work of our renowned designers – or as stand alone pieces here at Beach Treasures in Duck...found exclusively on the Town of Duck Boardwalk.
