Marianne has been the personification of the Republic of France since the French Revolution. She represents liberty, equality, fraternity, and reason.
A stone of action, vitality and will, Pyrite taps into one’s abilities and potential while stimulating the flow of ideas. It brings confidence and the persistence to carry things through to completion.
An orphan earring is 1888's term for a single earring that has lost its other pair. Many might see these as now useless, which makes it one of our favorite items to rescue and repurpose!
