Peter Stone Jewellery
- High quality jewellery manufacturer
The Peter Stone Company purchases raw silver and produces their own true .925 sterling silver alloy in their own factory. All rings are cast to size and craftsmen cut and inlay each stone for a perfect fit. Every piece of jewellery created is hand polished not tumble polished, which leads to a high quality finish that is noticeably different.
Peter Koslowski had been working on merchant ships since 1983 while living in Sri Lanka and was fortunate to be exposed to an abundance of precious stones and he began to purchase and trade them, as well as silver. During this period he also studied gemology and jewellery making in a number of countries. This then lead to the founding of the Peter Stone Company in 1992 in Bangkok, Thailand, where he still resides.
- Spiritual, feminine, re-connection
A goddess is a female being who's believed to be the source of life and being. Cultures worldwide worshipped goddesses from early times, although the Christianity movement in particular fazed it out. Today, however, there's a rising popularity in re-kindling connections with goddesses, especially from women who feel traditional religions lack the extra perspective and guidance they seek.
Celebrating goddesses offers a way of embracing and rediscovering female characteristics, of celebrating feminine abilities, thoughts and capabilities. It offers a form of spirituality that means something to women and celebrates their unique power and self-worth. Each goddess has her own characteristics and linking to the one that seems appropriate to you is said to help enhance those particularly qualities in your own life.
