The shapes depicted in Gustav Klimt’s famous painting, “The Kiss”, inspire this piece. A man cloaked in squares and a woman wearing a dress with circles stand in an embrace. No matter one’s gender, we all have feminine (yin) and masculine (yang) energy in each of us.
Yin energy is associated with stillness, nighttime, intuition, creativity, feelings, and senses. This is represented in the circle-cut moonstone in this ring.
Yang energy is assertive, goal-oriented, and dominant. This energy is associated with daytime, activity, vision, and power. This is represented in the square-cut moonstone in this ring.
These earrings were designed to remind the wearer that it’s important to have both, but we must keep the balance.

Moonstone reminds us that it is time to get down with our divine selves. It invites us to explore the places in our bodies that need both passion and healing. This gemstone is also an ideal companion for an inward spiritual journey and it fires up our feminine side. Be prepared for an influx of intuition.
Gold vermeil is an overlay of gold over a base of sterling silver and requires special care. To extend the life of your gold vermeil jewelry, remove when washing hands, showering, applying lotions or perfumes, using harsh cleansers, or working out. Always store your jewelry in a dry place, preferably in individual air-tight bags. Do not use chemical jewelry cleansers or polishing cloths on gold vermeil jewelry.
Gold vermeil jewelry will inevitably fade to a warm silver or a light 10K gold colour. This is the nature of plated jewelry. The rate of wear depends on care, climate and individual body chemistry, and may vary greatly on a case by case basis. As rings are worn on the hand, and are exposed to more frequent rubbing, they will often age more quickly than necklaces or earrings. We do not offer re-plating of our gold vermeil designs and all sales of gold vermeil jewelry are final.
