L&C Gaia La Pierre
Gaia La Pierre is crafted by hand in genuine nautical dock line cordage in a series of snake knots that are then embroidered with semi-precious gemstone orbs, including amethyst, aquamarine and malachite. The timeless snake knot was often employed in ancient Asian culture, where it stood as a visual symbol of an agile snake. Considered to be the guardian of treasures and riches, the snake symbolizes good fortune, wisdom and strength. The dock line itself also stands as a symbol of anchoring and finding one's way home.
The gemstones we've selected for each colorway also transmit their own energy;
Amethyst (on black): Throughout history, amethysts have been highly regarded as powerful stones used as talismans for protection and healing. Often said to calm anxiety and stress, this geode crystal is a member of the quartz family and helps us to connect to the Divine.
Aquamarine (on navy): It is said that aquamarine, the March birthstone, was gifted to ancient mariners by mermaids in order to keep them safe while on the high seas. A member of the beryl family, Aquamarine's qualities are many, from its ability to calm anxiety to stand for eternal love and a bright future ahead.
Malachite (on pink): Malachite is a bold stone prized far back in ancient times for its ability to ward off negative energy and open the heart. The name malachite derives from the Greek "malakos", meaning soft, and you'll find this soothing aspect of the stone to assist during tricky transitions. As change seems to be the only constant, this charm will come to the rescue again and again.
