The Ama necklace is a beautiful piece dedicated to the Japanese traditional female pearl divers. These women have been diving since 927AD in the Heian period. They were honoured for the work they performed by retrieving abalone for shrines and emperors. The necklace features freshwater pearls with a sterling gold magnetic closing. Ama, which means “sea woman” in Japanese, is a word used to describe the beauty of natural pearls. Each pearl is naturally unique, making each necklace a work of art.
Plumeria flowers dress the body with seductive innovation
The evocative power of plumerias can be traced to the ancient Maya and Aztec pantheon. The nik-te’, with its five petalled flower, is said to be the manifestation of the god Ppizlimtec. This is the Aztec equivalent of the Maya god Xochipilli. The plumeria’s five petals are adorned with a hummingbird whose ajaw penetrating the flower is viewed as an embodiment of Ppizlimtec, the god of the sun. The plumeria was also associated with the nubile goddess, Macuil-Xochitl.
The flower’s generative powers were also acknowledged by the Nahuatl people. They cultivated plumeria trees for their gardens and traded them during feasts. Inscribed on codices and ceramics were stylized images of plumeria flowers. The number of varieties named after the flowers shows that their popularity permeated Mesoamerican cosmology. They were associated with fertility and life force, and were strongly linked to female eroticism.
In the pre-Columbian period, plumerias were highly valued for their medicinal and aesthetic properties. They were used in religious ceremonies and were even used as elaborate decorations of the Virgin Mary. In Southeast Asia, plumerias were used to decorate grave sites, where they were used to facilitate communication between the dead and positive spirits. Furthermore, they were also used to ward off evil influences from ancestors. As a result of its long history of use, plumerias have gained a mystical significance that extends beyond their purely cosmetic purposes.
When buying a Freshwater pearl ama necklace, you should always pay attention to the lustre, shape, and surface quality of the pearl. A bright, shiny lustre is indicative of good quality. Any dull, chalky colour indicates low quality. Freshwater pearls can range in luster from AAA to A, with AAA being the best quality and A the lowest. Nevertheless, freshwater pearls are very unique, so there are no universally accepted grading standards for them.
The size of a Freshwater pearl varies considerably, with most pieces between 2.0 mm and 10.0 mm. Sizes larger than that are considered rare. A Freshwater pearl’s growth period varies from farm to farm. The luster is the most important feature, as the higher the luster, the more valuable it is. To ensure that your Freshwater pearl is perfectly round, be sure to avoid putting it near cosmetics, as it can cause nacre to develop unevenly.
