Inspired by the many Caribbean islands located in the West Indies, these pieces speak to the unique styles and exquisite qualities of the Caribbean, while utilizing key stones, shells, and beads native to these islands.
This oversized statement necklace is the perfect choice for both men and women alike. Dramatic length adds interest, while a large cross captures attention. The name Oringo, an African name meaning 'God is merciful', is represented through the gorgeous detail work of the hand-beaded cowrie shell cross, that is intricately framed by miniature glass beads. Beautifully polished Peach Aventurine gems contrast the darker brown beads and are accented by crystal spacers, creating a soothing mix of earthy tones and swirling pops of color with a touch of luxury. Peach Aventurine is known as a stone of luck, and has many healing properties with abilities to calm and balance the emotions while strengthening one's sense of self.
