Missoma's Colourful and Bold Gemstone Collection



I can't get enough of Missoma's latest collection Meaningful Gemstones. It's a definite return to what Missoma was originally known for, colour, bold layering and gemstones. The last few years we've seen the popularity of simple and plain pieces being stacked and layered up and in all honesty it's got a little predictable.


Missoma's Colourful and Bold Gemstone Collection

There are some really unusual stones that have been used in this collection such as dendritic chalcedony, rutillated quartz but also some treasured classics such as turquoise, amethyst and rose quartz.

Often stones that can have a lot of inclusions or marks are often not used in collections but each stone in this collection will look very different from another giving you a competently unique piece of jewellery. This also means better trading and fairness for the miners and people working close to the source of these stones.

I have already snapped up a black rutillated quartz pendent for myself which is a stone for luck, wealth and balance.

Read on to see the meanings behind this bold and colorful collection and comment with your favourite stone.

THE STORY BEHIND MEANINGFUL GEMSTONES


About the collection
From time to time we all seek a little spiritual boost in our lives. In today’s more mindful world, we celebrate our love of crystals and explore their mystical energy and healing properties.

Protection, Self-love, Inner Strength and Confidence – we all need certain aspects of these to help guide us through life’s journey.
We hope these meaningful gemstones help keep you on your path to happiness, fulfilment, success or whatever it is you’re seeking. They will be a constant reminder for you of how you want to live your life and what is important to you.

‘I’ve always loved to have the energy of crystals around me – the power of intention is really important in today’s hectic world and they remind me of what my goals and intentions should be, and to focus on these’.
Marisa Hordern, Founder & Creative Director

Missoma's Colourful and Bold Gemstone Collection

"Why we love Crystals Missoma's Creative Director, Marisa, has been collecting gemstones with her mother since she was a little girl. Everyone at school used to ask her where all her energy came from, and the joke was 'the crystals', which were displayed on glass shelves all around her bedroom. 

When her uncle once came to stay when she was away at school, he said that there was far too much energy in the room! Having spent all her pocket money on gemstones, her love developed into something far more than just a childhood collection or hobby, as she started making jewellery around her kitchen table. Soon she was sourcing gemstones around the world from Hong Kong, Thailand, India and the US. Now, Marisa's love of gemstones sees her source her gemstones directly from the rough stone and create her own special shapes and hand faceted cuts. 

Travelling out to India to choose the gemstones based on their depth of colour, clarity or patterns, she often says it's her favorite part of being a jewellery designer. Our 'Meaningful Gemstones' collection is something of a PASSION PROJECT for Marisa, as it sees her return to her roots and the reason why she got into jewellery in the first place."
