Fabergé Launches Cosmic Curve

Inspired by the belief that every gemstone contains energy from one of the planets in our solar system, Fabergé has launched a collection of rings named Cosmic Curve. Set with tsavorites, a rainbow of coloured sapphires and Gemfields’ Zambian emeralds and Mozambican rubies, these rings are available in 18k yellow, white and rose gold and are ideal for either stacking or wearing alone. In line with this belief, which has its origin in ancient times, it is hoped that the energy from the gemstones will help the wearer to increase their sense of wellbeing and happiness.

It was the Babylonians who, thousands of years ago, believed that gemstones were guarantors of health and joy: their unusual colours and scarcity contributed to this idea that they were associated with magical powers. Today, it is still believed that the healing powers of gemstones derive from the special cosmic influences of their associated ruling planets. 

Ancient Indian gemmological texts explain that white light is composed of seven primary and two secondary colours blended together. The primary colours are red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, and violet; the secondary colours are ultra-violet and infra-red. The former become visible in the form of a rainbow whenever white light is refracted through a prism or rain falls; but the latter two always remain invisible. 

These nine colours are thought of as the cosmic matrix, and are the very essence of the nine planets; and it is through these bright hues that the planets radiate their energy and influence. 

 

Of all the elements in nature, gemstones constitute the most condensed form of concentrated colour and can provide a limitless source of cosmic colour rays. In ancient Indian texts, gemstones with their corresponding colours were said to possess powers that could be used in a targeted manner to heal symptoms of certain illnesses.

If the Sun (Surya) is exalted in a horoscope, it is believed a person will be well-read, strong, and compassionate. Red is the cosmic colour transmitted by rubies, and red colour waves are hot, and therefore reputed to be useful in curing diseases caused by excessive cold and moisture in the body, including colds, anaemia, low blood pressure and heart and circulatory problems. In addition, solar gemstones confer courage and eliminate sadness.

People with Mercury (Budha) in a horoscope will be educated, happy, fortunate and highly respected. Green is the cosmic colour transmitted by emeralds and tsavorite, and these colour waves relate to the earth’s element and are cold by nature. Mercury astral talismans are believed to improve memory and learning and to strengthen the nervous system.

When Saturn (Shani) is exalted, one will be charitable, lavish and affectionate. Violet is the cosmic colour transmitted by blue sapphires and other natural blue and violet gems. Violet colour waves are related to Saturn, the planet believed to govern the entire nervous system. Saturn Astral Talismans are known to help strengthen a person’s nervous system. 

If the Moon (Chandra) is exalted in a horoscope, it is believed a person will be wealthy, industrious, and respected. Orange is the cosmic colour transmitted by lunar gems, and orange colour waves are cold, and therefore said to be useful in treating ailments caused by excessive heat in the body. Moon jewels are also believed to pacify emotions, induce tranquillity, and improve artistic creativity.

If Jupiter (Brihaspati) is exalted in a horoscope, it is believed a person will be a leader and respected. Light blue is the cosmic colour transmitted by yellow sapphires and light blue colour waves, being very cold, relate to the ethereal nature and are helpful in enhancing spiritual understanding, increasing one’s fortune, and balancing the hormonal system. 

People with the moon’s north node (Rahu) exalted in their birth chart are believed to be wealthy and fortunate. Ultra-violet is the cosmic colour transmitted by orange gems. Ultra-violet colour waves are the coldest of all the cosmic rays and are believed to help with ailments caused by extreme overheating, i.e., high fever, indigestion and insomnia. 

When Venus (Shukra) is exalted in the birth chart, one will be humanitarian, long-lived and possess many good qualities. Indigo is the cosmic colour transmitted by diamonds and other colourless gems. Venus astral talismans are known to induce purity of body and mind, and to confer artistic talent and worldly happiness.

When Mars (Mangala) is exalted in the horoscope, one has great energy. Yellow is the cosmic colour and these colour waves are related to lymph nodes, blood, and the head. Mars astral talismans may help to strengthen these vital elements.

The rubies and emeralds used within the Cosmic Curve rings have been acquired from Gemfields, a world-leading supplier of responsibly sourced coloured gemstones.

Gemfields gemstones are mined in Africa: rubies from Mozambique and emeralds from Zambia. Responsible sourcing for Gemfields means implementing industry-leading policies and practices across operations, transparency in the auction sales process, an active role in working groups to modernise the coloured gemstone sector, projects to improve health, education and livelihoods for the communities around the mines and conservation efforts to protect Africa’s great wildlife and biodiversity.

The Cosmic Curve collection is available from £4,600/$6,000 and can be purchased at faberge.com. Virtual appointments are also available to view the rings.

What are the luckiest colours for the Year of the Water Tiger in 2022?

A new year sets the stage to start things afresh and with a clean slate. We wish for luck and positivity in the ensuing year that will help us prosper. While there are many beliefs that vow to bring success, traditional practices, like Feng Shui, can also help usher in prosperity into our lives.
Chinese culture introduced us to the world of Feng Shui, a practice that believes in balancing energies to bring luck, wealth and ensure good health.
According to Chinese astrology, 2022 will be the Year of the Water Tiger — a creature that signifies ambition, competitive spirit, impulsiveness and communication.
Here is what you need to know about Feng Shui, its five elements and lucky colours according to Chinese astrology for the Year of the Tiger. Welcome home positive energy and dispel negative ones as you embark upon a brand new journey, with hope and confidence in 2022.
The five elements of Feng Shui
National Geographic explains Feng Shui as an “ancient Chinese art of arranging buildings, objects and space in an environment to achieve harmony and balance in a way that will bring peace and prosperity.”
Rooted deep in the Taoist concept of chi, which is formed by the confluence of two opposing yet complementary forces yin — the feminine energy associated with nighttime, coolness and quiet — and yang — the masculine energy associated with the sun, sociability and heat.
Chi is nothing but the life force present in each entity, and Feng Shui aims at striking a balance between yin and yang energies. This can be done through organising furniture/decor items and constructing structures that enhance the flow of positive chi and keep away negative chi and bad luck.
Maintaining a positive chi not only ensures good fortune but also keeps diseases at bay and enhances interpersonal equations.
Feng Shui has five elements — wood, fire, earth, metal and water. Each element represents certain traits. Wood stands for creativity and growth; fire represents leadership and boldness; earth is symbolic of strength and stability; metal denotes focus and order; water signifies emotion and inspiration.
Striving to maintain a balance between these five components leads to positive chi and balances the natural flow of energy. Using colours that correspond to these five elements is one of the easiest ways to incorporate Feng Shui into your life.
Lucky colours for Feng Shui elements in Year of the Water Tiger 2022
The Year of the Water Tiger helps decide the lucky colours for 2022.
Cerulean blue, fiery red, mint green and imperial yellow are the lucky colours for 2022. These colours are derived from the four elements of Feng Shui — wood (primary element of the tiger), water (element of the year 2022), fire, earth and the Yang polarity.
They are also known as fortifying colours, as they improve the luck of those who wear them as a lucky charm or as clothing. One can also include these colours in their home.
What do ‘fortifying colours’ signify?
Cerulean blue: The shade represents appeasement, liberty and serenity. This colour will enhance one’s luck in job interviews, communication and negotiations. Excessive usage of this colour activates the water element and can also lead to despair, sluggishness and frigidness.
Mint green: This colour activates the wood element and represents healing, growth and inventiveness. Mint green will prove lucky for those who are looking forward to adapting to a new job/place or are embarking on a new journey. However, using the colour too much might lead to defeat and feelings of jealousy.
Fiery red: Symbolic of movement, vitality, passion and love, fiery red activates the element fire and is lucky for those who are entering a romantic relationship or are welcoming a baby. Although a favourable colour to improve your love life, usage of this shade in excess might give rise to rage.
Imperial yellow: The colour stands for foreknowledge, wisdom and organisation. Imperial yellow will prove lucky when it comes to purchasing property and transferring valuable goods, but excessive use of this shade can also give rise to vanity and adultery.
These fortifying colours for the Year of the Water Tiger 2022 apply to all the 12 Chinese zodiac signs — Rat, Ox, Tiger, Rabbit, Dragon, Snake, Horse, Goat, Monkey, Rooster, Dog and Pig. Know your Chinese zodiac sign here.
Balancing colours
Now that you know about colours that activate the four elements, let’s talk about the fifth element — metal.
Here’s where balancing colours come into play. To protect you from the negative effects of the four fortifying colours, you have the balancing and protective colours of white and golden, which activate the metal element.
