In celebration of Alex Streeter's 50th year of business, we're freshening up the archives and adding plenty of all-new stone options to the Alex Streeter pieces you know and love...
For a splash of color this summer, we present: The Pink Sapphire Sword-Pierced Heart.
The Sword-Pierced Heart Pendant is a reimagining of a classic Alex Streeter carving in miniature form. This piece was originally inspired by medieval portraits of the Virgin Mary, who is often depicted with a sword through her heart.
This very kawaii version of the Sword-Pierced Heart is set with a stunning lab-created Pink Sapphire. Lab-created sapphires are forged through a method called Flame Fusion, a form of real-life alchemy first discovered in the 1880's. These sparkling stones are not only ethically sourced, but will have the same hardness, density and appearance of natural stones.
Throughout history, pink sapphires have been regarded as symbols of love and passion. In medieval Europe, sapphires were often worn as talismans. In Alex's version of the Sword-Pierced Heart, the Heart represents eternal love while the sword attributes strength and fortitude to its wearer.
