Silvergirl Sterling Adds Larimar Artisans from the Dominican Republic
By: Silvergirl Sterling, Inc.
Larimar, a stone embodying the blue colors of the Caribbean sea and sky, is ONLY found in a small, remote area of Barahona Province. We traveled by 4x4 to the larimar mine and were able to bring back beautiful raw pieces after walking deep into the mountain to the openings where miners descend via rope to the active mining tunnels.
The Dominican Republic has beautiful beaches, sub-tropical rainforests and mountains to explore as well as the rich history of Santo Domingo - the oldest continuously inhabited European settlement in the Americas, and the first seat of the Spanish colonial rule in the New World. We were able to explore this capital city for a few days, visit Puerto Plata's beautiful Cofresi Beach on the north coast and then travel to the mine in the southwestern province of Barahona.
Silvergirl Sterling is proud to now offer its customers beautiful first quality larimar jewelry made by local Dominican artisans. Some of our new, unique designs include convertible rings, allowing the wearer to flip between a larimar stone and amber stone on the reverse.
We look forward to seeing you at an upcoming event where you can see these gorgeous designs in person to add to your store, or order them online. Silvergirl will continue to travel the world so you don't have to!
