The pieces born under the name of “fossili marini” became fundamental elements the set created for
Doride pieces, for Azar Studio’s Dea jewelry capsule collection
Considered the fertility of the ocean, Doride is the goddess of the rich fishing-grounds found at the mouth
of rivers where fresh water mingles with the brine. Being an Okeanide meant she was a sister of the Rivers.
Her name is connected with two words: Dôron, meaning "gift" or "abundance," and Zôros,
meaning the "pure" and “unmixed."
The jewelry pieces designed - a set of earrings and necklace - combine free form pearls with mother of
pearl. In ancient Vedic texts, the pearl is born of the earth’s waters and the heaven’s powers,
fertilised by a flash of lightning. Pearls symbolise wisdom acquired through experience.
Known for their calming effect, pearls are also said to symbolise the purity, generosity, integrity,
and loyalty of its wearer. A protection stone, Mother of Pearl brings the gentle healing power of the sea.
It is a stress relieving stone; relaxing, soothing and calming to the emotions.
