A doublet is two slices of different gemstones, usually an opaque gem on the bottom and a transparent gem on the top, layered one atop the other to create a unique color. Once they are layered they are cut into shape.
Turquoise is perhaps the oldest stone in man’s history, the talisman of kings, shamans, and warriors. It is a stone of protection, strong and opaque, yet soothing to the touch, healing to the eye, as if carved from an azure heaven and slipped to earth.
A rose cut gemstone has a flat bottom and a domed, peaked top. This is an old style cut that was commonly found in 1700-1800’s and is one Lisa frequently uses in her designs.
From the Trilogy Collection. The symbolism behind the trilogy varies on your culture and beliefs. Some believe it is a declaration (and confirmation) of "you are my past, my present and my future”. Some believe it just means simply "I love you". Or it could be interpreted as the centre stone defines commitment, and the supporting stones, trust and respect. Or you may choose a religious meaning. Which ever the meaning for you, it is positive, loving and will stand the test of time.
