Hand knotted handcrafted very unusual, rare lapis lazuli intaglio bead necklace with stunning ancient enameled Berber “hirz” silver amulet and artisan sterling silver hinged security clasp. The Arabic word “Hirz” literally means “a protected space”. Ancient lapis lazuli has been revered by many cultures for its spectacular cobalt blue color. Titian, Michelangelo and Vermeer all used the crushed blue powdered gemstone mixed with resins and oils in their paintings and murals. Lapis lazuli has been revered for centuries as the stone of wisdom, protection and royalty. This gorgeous handmade Moroccan Berber hirz would have carried verses from the Qur’an and worn by women as a protective amulet.
