Using multiple coloured gemstones, the collection aims to increase the wearer's well-being
February 26, 2021: Inspired by the belief that every gemstone contains energy from one of the planets in our solar system, Fabergé has launched the Cosmic Curve collection of rings. Set with tsavorites, a rainbow of coloured sapphires and Gemfields’ Zambian emeralds and Mozambican rubies, these rings are available in 18k yellow, white and rose gold. In line with this belief, which has its origin in ancient times, it is hoped that the energy from the gemstones will help the wearer to increase their sense of wellbeing and happiness.
It was the Babylonians who, thousands of years ago, believed that gemstones were guarantors of health and joy: their unusual colours and scarcity contributed to this idea that they were associated with magical powers. Today, it is still believed that the healing powers of gemstones derive from the special cosmic influences of their associated ruling planets.
This belief is corroborated by ancient Indian gemmological texts as well, which explain that white light is composed of seven primary and two secondary colours blended together. The primary colours are red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, and violet; the secondary colours are ultra-violet and infra-red. The former become visible in the form of a rainbow, but the latter two always remain invisible. These nine colours are thought of as the cosmic matrix, and are the very essence of the nine planets; and it is through these bright hues that the planets radiate their energy and influence.
Gemstones constitute the most condensed form of concentrated colour and thus can provide a limitless source of cosmic colour rays. In ancient Indian texts, gemstones with their corresponding colours were said to possess powers that could be used in a targeted manner to heal symptoms of certain illnesses.
For example, if the Sun (Surya) is exalted in a horoscope, it is believed a person will be well-read, strong, and compassionate. Red is the cosmic colour transmitted by rubies, and red colour waves are hot, and therefore reputed to be useful in curing diseases caused by excessive cold and moisture in the body, including colds, anaemia, low blood pressure and heart and circulatory problems. In addition, solar gemstones confer courage and eliminate sadness.
When Saturn (Shani) is exalted, one will be charitable, lavish and affectionate. Violet is the cosmic colour transmitted by blue sapphires and other natural blue and violet gems. Violet colour waves are related to Saturn, the planet believed to govern the entire nervous system. Saturn Astral Talismans are known to help strengthen a person’s nervous system.
Ideal to be stacked or worn alone, the Cosmic Curve collection is available from £4,600/$6,000 and can be purchased at faberge.com. Virtual appointments are also available to view the rings or find out more about your colour.
