"Quality is not an act, it's a habit - Aristotle"
Alice is a Sydney based jewelry designer who specializes in custom made pieces. She graduated from Gemmological Association of Australia Dip.Gemmology, Diamond Grading and Dip.Diamond Technology in 2009 and started working in a diamond wholesale company for many years as a Diamond Grader. In late 2013 she officially launched her online boutique store.
One of my favorite pieces she has designed is the Amazonite Warrior necklace which is aqua green in colour. The meaning of the stone is said to be of truth, honor, integrity, hope & trust as well as enhancing creativity and intellect; all qualities I admire. It is noted mystically to lessen stress by calming and building self esteem which I am sure we can all take on board! The colour evokes all of those emotions single handedly.
You can find 3 types of Pearls that Alice uses for her gorgeous collection. Her Freshwater pearls grow in mussels, mainly in rivers & lakes and are cultivated and hand selected from Alice herself to ensure they are as close as possible in colour and size with minimal blemishes. The Akoya Pearls are quite rare and are mainly found in Japan and are cultivated for a period of 8 to 10 months throughout the year. My favourite though are her South Sea pearls. These are the most luxurious of them all and are the rarest to find as they are grown in the Southern ocean within the Pinctada maxima oyster. They are absolutely breathtaking!
