Marahlago was founded by their dream to combine this premier gem like larimar with excellent jewelry designs and fashion forward settings. Our mission is to create treasured pieces that captivate wearers and admirers time and again. The ageless beauty and natural luminescence of Larimar makes it a privilege to create designs that capture the spirit of this unique gem and share its amazing natural beauty with others.
COMMITMENT TO EXCELLENCE
Because Larimar was formed in the heart of a volcano, much of the natural Larimar found has some kind of flaw. Our commitment to excellence means that we use less than 1% of mined Larimar for our designs. Our craftsmen are trained to meticulously inspect and cut every stone to ensure they are free of inclusions, crack, areas of discoloration, dullness and other signs of low-grade Larimar.
LARIMAR JEWELRY DESIGN
Adrian’s creative designs have captured the hearts of Larimar lovers around the world. His flair for fashion forward design beautifully highlight Larimar in a way that captures the essence of the Caribbean. Having explored the Caribbean port by port, Adrian’s adventures are reflected in every piece.
Larimar is a rare gem with a mysterious history that exists only in the Dominican Republic. An earthquake dislodged pieces into a river where they gently tumbled downstream to be discovered. One of the early artisans used the small blue pebbles and named them after his daughter, “Larissa” and the spanish word for ocean, “Mar.” Local children can still be seen running up and down the shore in search of their own treasures.
As an assurance to our treasured customers, each one of our unique designs bears the Marahlago trademark flower. This is our guarantee to you that the piece is of the highest quality and showcases natural and untreated Larimar.
Since our founding, one Marahlago’s main accomplishments has been our ability to establish a local partnership with miners and craftsman by working with them create and participate in a global Larimar market. Through our partnerships, we have enabled entire villages to support themselves. At marahlago we have the unique privilege of knowing that every piece we make and sell has a direct, positive impact on another’s life.
