All Magazine
The stone called Shiva Lingam is found in the Narmada River, one of the seven sacred places of India. The oval stone is simply a mixture of agate, basalt and quartz jasper whose shapes have been forged by the river currents. The Shiva Lingam represents male strength (knowledge) and female strength (wisdom) and is considered a powerful symbol of love.

“It was during one of my first trips to India that I met this stone and was fascinated by it. I wanted to reinterpret it and make it into a jewel so that, by wearing it, we can always remember that love has no gender but truth and unity."
