Meet Me Where The Sky Touches The Sea

Larimar is the stone of the sea. Discovered in the Dominican Republic in 1974 by native Miguel Mendez, he named the rare stone after his daughter, Larissa and the spanish word for sea. Lari-Mar. Larimar is a pectolite, which can be found in many locations but only in white and gray. It is only in the Dominican Republic, where the copper changes the color to blue! There are many grade variants of Larimar, the more blue and pure, the higher the grade. We think it's perfect for weddings (something blue!), beach lovers, and anyone searching for calm and tranquility


Labradorite crystal gets its name from the town of Labrador, Canada, where the stone was discovered. It only takes one look at Labradorite’s flashy iridescence to understand where the many native legends about this stone come from. According to native Canadian tribal lore, Labradorite is said to contain the Northern Lights, known as the Aurora Borealis. In the myth, it is believed that the lights were “set free” by one of their ancestors who broke through the rocks with his spear. The lights that remained were set into stone, and thus Labradorite was born.

About Us

Welcome! My name is Tonia and my husband is the genius and talent behind BenDavisDesigns! It started way back in 1999 (are we really that old?!) when a cute guy in worn out jeans and hiking boots kept asking me on dates to rockhound, rock climb, and hike! Almost 22 years and six kids later, his rock collection from around the world was taking over the house. Ben's hobby was teaching our five daughters to make cabochons, cutting minerals into polished and faceted shapes. These minerals were set in 925 sterling silver for pendants necklaces and rings. We had so much jewelry we decided to set up shop! Since then, we have formed collaborations with local silversmith Randy Bryant and occasionally team up with other artists! We love traveling around the world, meeting new people, being outside as much as possible, goofing off with our kids, and creating one-of-a-kind, high quality jewelry! We believe every piece has a story. You can find us showing new pretty things, sharing adventures, and having fun through our emails or blog, on Facebook, Instagram, and TikTok! Can't wait to meet you! ~ Tonia and Ben Davis
