The pharaohs of Egypt, the leaders of Babylon, and the rulers and nobility of ancient Greece and Rome favored lapis lazuli. Lapis lazuli earrings, rings, and pendants are still popular today for their deep blue color. Many of the best quality pieces come from Afghanistan, and they have pyrite inclusions that cause them to resemble a night sky filled with beautiful stars. The ancient Egyptians believed that lapis lazuli was a symbol of heavens that could promote wisdom and truth. Lapis lazuli is usually formed into cabochons to show off its striking color. Lapis gold earrings are a great choice because the gold matches the color of the pyrite, also called fool's gold. Since people have been wearing it for so long, vintage lapis earrings and other jewelry is relatively common. You can find lapis earrings from all over the world without ever leaving home through the reliable sellers on eBay.
