Living life in the fast lane as one of the entertainment industry’s top Automotive Advertising stunt drivers, Doriana Richman has embarked on a new creative journey as a jewelry designer. Stone Symbol Jewelry was inspired by her visit to the excavated city of Ephesus, an ancient Greek city on the coast of Ionia. It was in this ancient city that Doriana came across an ancient secret symbol, which had emerged as a code to those seeking refuge from religious persecution. The symbol, that informed the knowing observer of a safe harbor and the existence of like-minded believers, was carved into the walls and walkways of the city’s streets. It is recognized as the first symbol of Christianity, Unity, and a Spiritual Birth of Humanity. After thousands of years of wear, the symbol is still visible to this day. It was this symbol of acceptance and protection that led Doriana to share this message of unity with the world.
Beverly Hills Magazine: What makes Stone Symbol so unique?
Doriana Richman: We are all created equally. We are all children of GOD. In Ancient times, there was great oppression of the Christian faith. They had to connect and enter into communion with one another with a secret handshake. This symbol was written on walls to communicate shared faith with each other. This was amazing to me that this was really the start and birth of the foundation of God’s Christian Church in the world. You’ll find that all the pieces look like they are ancient as if they have been dug up from the ancient city ruins. The degradation is so fine it allows the individual’s skin tone to shine through when wearing the jewelry.
Beverly Hills Magazine: Where do you manufacture?
Doriana Richman: We manufacture in Los Angeles., and all the clasps and chains are from Italy.
Beverly Hills Magazine: What is the personal meaning to one who owns a Stone Symbol?
Doriana Richman: I want the Symbol to resonate with spiritual believers, and fulfill a desire that so many people have. People want to have a unifying connection. I hate segregation, and this is a universal sign of UNITY. I hope people who receive it as a gift or buy it for themselves, know that we are all sons and daughters of GOD, and that makes us family.
Beverly Hills Magazine: How has the Power of GOD aided in this business venture?
Doriana Richman: Everything that I do, I pray on. GOD speaks to me. He channels through me what He wants. I am just a vessel. I get goosebumps just talking about it. I had a powerful experience with GOD while in Ephesus, and it struck me like lightning. I knew I had to create this Symbol and turn it into a product I could share with the world.
Beverly Hills Magazine: Do you believe in the saving Power of Jesus Christ?
Doriana Richman: Absolutely.
Doriana Richman: It’s to bring me closer to GOD. I also work in the film business, but this project as really brought be back to my spiritual roots. I feel re-connected with my Spiritual Being, and I want to share that with everybody. Also, I want to make sure I’m giving back to the USA so we manufacture here. That’s important to me.
Beverly Hills Magazine: How will owning a Stone Symbol change someone’s life?
Doriana Richman: I want people to connect with this Symbol spiritually. This symbol will become the Universal Unifier that brings unity, peace, and God’s presence back into people’s hearts and minds.
