As the heart beats, each thump is rhythmic with purpose, life, and beauty. Individual and magnetic, the heart echoes out vibrations into the universe that can be amplified through the use of sacred stones – a cultural belief that dates back many a century. For Lebanese jewelry designer Noor Fares, a love of chakra-opening gems is rooted in this faith. It’s even exemplified through her past collections, each of which utilizes the ethereal power of stones to give the wearer a sense of inner tranquility. However, with her new ‘Prana’ line, the energy levels of her sublime new pieces are masterfully enhanced.
Named after the harmonious “life force” that is prana, it’s intended to intertwine the mental and physical, from the root of the body to the crown. Pulling positivity into each one of the seven chakras are heart-shaped diamond pendants, divinely cut stones, and even dazzling rings developed to breathe peace and attract what the aura needs most. Curating a special selection for each chakra, Fares’ knowledge of the depth of each stone is evident. In its nature, rose quartz nurtures, attracts, and grows love. Similarly, opal helps protect while boosting positivity – and both are found within the ‘Anahata’ styles.
Evoking the spirit of love, these heart-shaped pieces focus on the fourth chakra – the heart chakra – through both their cleverly deliberate symbolism and use of rose quartz and opal, so it’s only apt that they’re available just in time for Valentine’s Day. With magic and otherworldly powers instilled in the designs, their radiant energy is sure to make this day feel extra special.
