Hi I'm Esme. Many of you know me as the original designer of Lunch at The Ritz Jewelry and Ritzy Couture. I'm delighted to say that I will now be carrying brand new and never worn Tabra jewelry designed by my dear and lifelong friend Tabra Tunoa.
Today, I'm offering a brand new and never worn Tabra 925 Silver Golden Brazilian Citrine Ring from Esme's Vault OOK287 Sz (7.5).
Citrine is a stone as bright as its energy. Everything about this stone emanates positivity and joy. Even its name, which is derived from the French word for lemon, carries a sense of sun and joy attached to it. Found naturally in Brazil, Africa, Madagascar, Spain, Russia, France, Scotland and USA, this gemstone has been an ornamental gem for civilizations as early as 300 B.C., and a favorite with jewelry makers since the ancient Greeks and Romans. Even in first century A.D., citrine was being fashioned into cabochon rings and used in intaglio work. Later in the 17th century, Queen Victoria would become fascinated by the beauty of the stone, and as a result it would be used by Scottish men in kilt pins, shoulder broaches, and to adorn their swords and the handles of their daggers. The stone’s popularity resurged again during the Art Deco era, as early Hollywood stars boasted citrine jewelry like elaborate brooches, grand necklaces and other pieces where large faceted citrine was the center piece.

Tabra combines sacred symbols with semi-precious stones, hand-made beads and ancient materials to create Gypsy earrings, tribal pendants, primitive talismans, exotic bracelets and necklaces. Many of her pieces are one-of-a-kind or limited editions. Whether mystical and spiritual symbols, tribal motifs, shaman-influenced combinations or protective talismans, women worldwide find Tabra's designs both beautiful and powerful.
I met Tabra Tunoa in 1973 when we both started working at the same jewelry factory. When the factory closed soon after, we decided to go into a partnership so that we could both sell our jewelry on Telegraph Avenue in Berkeley California. Tabra had a small studio in her apartment, and I had one in mine. We would meet every morning and take turns pulling our shopping cart out to Telegraph Ave to set up "shop" on the street with other street artists.
It wasn't long before Tabra became a huge success. Travelling the world she inspired strong women everywhere to choose their magic and express themselves by wearing her fabulous and exotic jewelry. Her dear friends Amy Tan and Isabel Allende began wearing her jewelry on all their guest appearances and book signing tours. Tabra had become an in inspiration to all woman to have a voice and follow their dream.
