Marie Hélène de Taillac is one of my favourite jewelry designers. It is joyful and colorful with exquisite gemstones.
Iolite is a magnesium aluminium silicate and has a blue-violet colour. This fine gemstone is found in Brazil, India, Madagascar, Myanmar, Sri Lanka and in the United States. Furthermore, the name comes from the greec word “ios” meaning “purple”. The Viking sailors used the iolite as a polarizing filter in order to find the sun during cloudy days.
