In Love with Lovely Larimar Pendants

Pristine blue skies, the blinding aqua blue Caribbean sea with its rolling waves…and you sitting pretty on a beach there! Magical, marvelous and oh-so divine! But what’s more divine than that would be if you were to sport an amazing pendant made up of a gemstone that originated from one such place. Larimar - found and mined only in the Dominican Republic in the Caribbean.

The history of how larimar came to be found and named is as interesting as its beautiful blue hue. In the Caribbean, locals called larimar “Blue stone” because they believed it came from the sea. However, it was only in 1974 that it actually came to be recognized as gem quality after Miguel Méndez and Peace Corps volunteer Norman Rilling found larimar on a beach. The name larimar came about when Miguel fused his daughter Larissa’s name with the Spanish word for sea, “Mar.”

Larimar looks best when set in sterling silver as the precious metal brings out the calmness and color saturation of the gemstone. It is often paired with another gemstone of the same color palette or offered as a contrast to a more robust gem like an emerald. Just imagine those blue and bright green colors together – it would remind you of the tropics! Anyway, check out our beautiful larimar pendants!
