About the gemstone

In 1500’s Brazil, a conquistador mistakenly identified a dusty green tourmaline as emerald. This confusion lived on until the 1800’s, when gem identification became sophisticated enough to identify it as a mineral species of its own in the 1800’s. Tourmaline comes in such a wide variety of colors that it earned the name “tourmaline” from the Sinhalese word for “mixed gems”. 
MOHs Hardness: 7-7.5
Origins: Various
Care: Although tourmalines are sturdy they are not invincible and can break: avoid dropping them onto hard surfaces. To clean your aquamarine jewelry, soak in warm, soapy water and remove any dirt with a toothbrush or the like.
Healing Properties: Healing, strength, vitality, wholeness
Birthstone: October

The Story of Vanity

Celebrating the often discouraged act of adorning oneself, the Vanity collection combines glamour with grit, and naturalistic curiosities with industrial elements. Growing up in a world that said a desire to be beautiful was vain, Hannah learned through time and her artwork that connecting to beauty is an ultimate form of empowerment. The one-of-a-kind and limited edition pieces of the Vanity collection incorporate Hannah’s love of atypical gemstones and prong settings. The gemstones found in Vanity are hand-selected for their obvious beauty, but more often for what makes them more obscure: vibrancy in unexpected hues, garish silhouettes, and striking inclusions that deem them traditionally flawed. But it is through their perfect imperfections that Hannah is given a canvas to celebrate her love of making, design, beauty, and unbridled creativity. Contrasting delicacy with severity and subtlety with singularity, the Vanity collection is a love story to femininity and ardent self-love. Shop the full Vanity Collection
