The Pharos bangle with shimmering Kyanite gem is named after the ancient lighthouse of Alexandrea. Thought to be the first lighthouse Pharos is also one of the Seven Wonders of the World whose significance has traveled the world through language in Italian (faro), French (phare), and Portuguese (farol) meaning light or headlight. Kyanite is thought to be able to enhance focus and meditation.
From Greek mythology Tethys, goddess of sources of fresh water was the wife of Okeanos, the earth-encircling, fresh-water stream. It was imaged that Tethys fed her children Potamoi (Rivers), Okeanide (Springs, Streams and Fountains) and Nephelai (Clouds) by drawing water from Okeanos aquifers (ref. Aaron J. Astma – The Theoi Project) The expanding chevron pattern of this graceful open top cuff is symbolic of rippling water and parting waves.
Designed with movement in mind the links of the Metropolis Streamline Bracelet overlap seamlessly and slide smoothly against the skin. The graphic style of the three dimensional links are reminiscent of the streamline designs of the Art Deco period and futuristic images of a bullet train.
