DOMINICAN PRODUCTS

Jewelry

At Chez Nicole Boutique, we offer a complete jewelry range for the whole family, and for every style. Each item is unique and handmade – colors and exact designs can vary. Most of our jewelry pieces are made with 925 silver, but we also offer pieces in 14K and 10K gold, stainless steel, and pewter/tin. For almost every design we have, you can make matching sets of different pieces.

Larimar

We are especially proud of our jewelry line with larimar, the Dominican national stone. Classified as a semi-precious stone, alongside with lapis lazuli, opal and turquoise, larimar is only found in one place on the planet: in the Dominican Republic. With its color of the sea, it’s the perfect way to remind you your holidays for many years.

Larimar was initially discovered in 1916, but is was not widely used until 1974 when Miguel Mendez and Norman Rilling rediscover the stone in the Barahona region located in South-West part of the Dominican Republic.

Its name is a blend of two words: “lari” from Larissa, which was the name of Mr. Mendez’s daughter, and “mar”, meaning sea in Spanish.

Since it recalls the calm of the sea, it is said that larimar balances everything within the emotions sphere. It’s excellent for relieving stress and depression (like relaxing music which integrates the wave sounds). Created by the volcanic activity, it balances the energy of water and fire.

At Chez Nicole Boutique you will fall in love with larimar! No piece is the same, because each stone has a spectrum of shades of blue with its striations and cloudlets. Some are even closer to green and others are reddish (presence of iron).

Trendy as a detail in a casual outfit, or standing out at a formal event, larimar always catch everyone’s attention. It pairs beautifully with all other materials: with silver or gold, with conch shell, or with pearls.

CARE TIP

You can rub it with a silver polishing cloth, or simply use soapy water and a toothbrush, and your jewelry will regain its initial beauty.

Dominican Amber

We have a wide collection of jewelry with the Dominican amber. Although considered a gem, amber is purely organic, it’s a fossilized tree resin. Its color varies from honey yellow, light brown, dark brown, reddish brown, even green/blue.

The Dominican amber is considered as one of the clearest and best quality existing. It contains a lot of inclusions (brushwood, leaves, and even insects trapped by the resin flow), which gives it a very interesting and unique appearance.

Amber, called a solar stone, has unique and powerful healing properties. It is used for pain alleviation, like in headaches and baby teething. It helps to balance the emotions, clear the mind and release negative energy. It aids manifestation, eases stress by clearing phobias and fears. It is believed it aids in memory loss.

Cigars

Tobacco is one of the most exported Dominican Republic products. Dominicans kept their hand rolling skills as an art, passing it along from father to son, in the same manner as it is done for centuries.

At Chez Nicole Boutique we are manufacturing our own premium cigars under the brand Reserva Cristóbal Colón. At our small cigar museum you can learn more about the history of tobacco, its cultivation, manufacturing process, and how to taste a good cigar. You will meet some of Arturo Fuente’s former employees and get their expertise of the making process and taste of the Dominican cigars.

We are perhaps a small factory, but we are one of the best when it comes to the selection of good cigars.

A Bit of Tobacco History

Tobacco was first discovered by the native people of Mesoamerica and South America and later introduced to Europe and the rest of the world. It had already long been used in the Americas by the time European settlers arrived and introduced the practice to Europe, where it became popular.

Eastern North American tribes have historically carried tobacco in pouches as a readily accepted trade item, as well as smoking it in pipe ceremonies, whether for sacred ceremonies or those to seal a treaty or agreement. Tobacco is considered a gift from the Creator, and tobacco smoke is seen as carrying one’s thoughts and prayers to the spirits.

On October 15, 1492, Christopher Columbus was offered “certain dried leaves which gave off a distinct fragrance” as a gift from the indigenous Arawaks that he encountered in the Bahamas, or Gran Turk Island. Soon the Spanish introduced tobacco to Europeans in about 1528, and soon it became popular and grown all over Europe.

Our Cigar Brand – Reserva Cristóbal Colón

The secret of a good cigars in the combination of tobacco leaves and their dosing, and then in the rolling technique. The talent and years long experience of our cigar rollers (called tabaqueros) is the base in the manufacturing of the premium cigars of our own brand – Reserva Cristóbal Colón.

All our cigars are handmade by our experts live in front of you. We make more than a dozen of different cigar types: in different sizes and shapes, with different tastes, from the lightest to the strongest.

Some of our cigars are available with Maduro finish (a darker and stronger taste wrapper). If you are looking for a spicier, stronger and closer to the Cuban cigars taste, the distinctive aromas of this wrapper will enhance your experience and meet your expectations.
