First Mate


First Mate


The skull is a common motif in jewelry, but the 'First Mate' stands apart. Big, bold, based on the ‘sugar skull’ tradition from Mexico, this piece is a fine sculpture you can wear. Solid sterling silver, fully adorned and inlaid with multiple fine quality blue sapphires. Not too much, just enough. This piece is bold, yet offers subdued elegance. Includes a beautiful sterling silver foxtail chain.

Traditionally, sapphire symbolizes nobility, truth, sincerity, and faithfulness. It has decorated the robes of royalty and clergy members for centuries. Its extraordinary color is the standard against which other blue gems—from topaz to tanzanite—are measured. In ancient Greece and Rome, kings and queens were convinced that blue sapphires protected their owners from envy and harm. For centuries, sapphire has also been associated with royalty and romance. The association was reinforced in 1981, when Britain’s Prince Charles gave a blue sapphire engagement ring to Lady Diana Spencer. 
William Henry uses the highest quality sapphires, selected and cut by Swarovski Gems.
