What You Should Know: Pendant was repurposed from an antique brooch.

The middle ages were really weird y’all. We could go on and on about the craziness that happened between the 5th and 15th centuries, but let’s just highlight vikings, the crusades, the black plague, the establishment of what is essentially modern education and universities, countless rulers- good and bad, etc etc etc. Another interesting, but maybe not so drastic, belief in the middles ages were about our fav stone- diamonds.

People believed that diamonds were “miracle stones”, and that they were downright magical. They could do anything from cure tummy aches to depression, forgetfulness, nightmares, rashes, exhaustion, you name it. They used diamonds as physical talismans in medical purposes, placing the stone on whatever part of the body was infected. This practice lasted until the Renaissance!

We don’t technically believe that diamonds have that extreme of a healing power, but there is something to say about how good we felt when we tried on this boss diamond necklace. Pretty freaking great. Converted from a brooch into the prettiest pendant, this baby has certainly got at least mood enhancing mojo in it.
