Lapis, or lapis lazuli, is a semi-precious gemstone that’s cherished for its deep, bold blue color. Since ancient times, lapis has been highly revered by a number of cultures. In fact, it was even used to create the eyebrows on the world-famous funeral mask made for the young pharaoh Tutankhamun.
Considering the enduring history of lapis, it’s not surprising that breathtaking Native American lapis jewelry is so popular to this day.
Bold and Beautiful
Legend has it that lapis is a stone that expands mental clarity, intelligence, creativity, and awareness. While blue-green turquoise tends to be the most iconic stone used in Southwestern Native American jewelry, red blood coral and blue lapis are excellent companion pieces. Red, blue, and turquoise are colors that are often combined in necklaces, bracelets, and more.
Paired with the right outfit, Native American lapis jewelry can be remarkably striking, and it matches gold and silver metals beautifully.
