You regularly hear us here at Windsor Jewelers say we’re constantly combing the globe for stunning new discoveries most of the rest of the jewelry world hasn’t awakened to yet. Looks and lines so fresh they instantly trigger questions from friends, and make you the envy of the room.

Introducing just such a find: the rare and beautiful Larimar jewelry from Marahlago.

Larimar? Unless you’re a geologist, chances are you’ve never come across it.

Found only in select regions of the Dominican Republic, Larimar is a very rare blue variety of pectolite first noticed by Father Miguel Domingo Fuertes Loren of the Barahona Parish in 1916. The good priest’s appeals to Rome for the funds and manpower to extract the stone fell on deaf ears, however.

It wasn’t until 1974 that Larimar was rediscovered by a Peace Corps volunteer, Norman Rilling who took his daughter’s name “Larissa” and the Spanish word for sea (mar) and formed the word Larimar. Research found that in the island’s active volcano years the lava’s flow into copper-rich limestone pockets cooled to a unique and beautiful blue-hued stone. The more intense the blue and surrounding contrast, the higher and rarer the quality.

Who can resist wearing a Caribbean vibe all year long? Or being regularly ask, “Where did you find that?”

We found it deep in paradise. You’ll find it at Windsor Jewelers!
