Handpicked, natural stones

For centuries, people have used specific gemstones for their effect on the human body. Some people believe that the effect is only psychological or even esoteric. However, every gemstone has it's unique chemical structure. If a gemstone is worn on the skin (for example with a bracelet) the substance gets absorbed by the human body in very small quantities. This works like homeophatic medicine .

 

For us at RISTRETTO JEWELRY, this is a nice side-effect. In all honesty, we are more obsessed with the quality of the product and the way it can upgrade your look.
