This listing is for a vibrant custom Malachite ring, crafted by hand especially for you!
To order, simply select the number of your favourite piece of Malachite from the drop-down menu, and enter your ring size in the text box next to it. I will then create your very own Gem & Tonik custom piece over three business days.
This particular ring design features a solid sterling silver 11 gauge (2.5mm) ring band, a thick sterling silver hand-sawed backing, and a fine silver bezel around the stone. The ring is then sanded smooth, set with your chosen piece of high-grade Malachite, then polished to a high shine. Each piece is made entirely by hand using cruelty-free materials and environmentally friendly methods.
*Please note that the completed rings in the photos are a guide as to how each piece will look, but as each stone is different, each finished piece will be unique! Stones will be set in the same way that they are laid out on my fingers in the photos. If you'd like me to set them horizontally, just send me a message after purchasing to let me know. :)

Well known to ancient Egyptians, Malachite mines were in use between the Suez and Sinai as early as 4000 B.C. Malachite was also popular with the Ancient Greeks and Romans for jewellery, ornaments and in powdered form, for eye shadow. Malachite was believed to protect against the 'Evil Eye' and to cure against various ailments. Russian Czars used Malachite for ornaments and paneling for their castles, and intricate inlay work.
One of the greatest properties of Malachite is protection, from both the physical and spiritual realm. Other properties include helping one to make change, creativity, enhancing the development of intuition, and to aid emotional healing. Keep Malachite with you to protect you whilst traveling or when undertaking tasks that may take a physical or psychological toll on your body.

❤ COMBINED SHIPPING:
I offer combined shipping on all my items, so you can purchase as many of my creations that you like, and not pay any extra!
❤ PRODUCT PHOTOS:
All photos are taken outside in natural sunlight in my garden. Please allow for slight variations in colour, as some monitors, browsers and phone screens display colour differently.
❤ MADE BY HAND:
My items are made entirely by my hands, and not from moulds, casts or machinery. Each piece takes a great deal of time to make, and I put a little bit of my heart into everything I create. This means that my work may not always look like pieces that are mass produced. To show this, I try to take clear photos outside in natural light, and from different angles so you can see each piece in its entirety.
If you are looking for something that looks like it came from a catalogue or big box retail store, then I would recommend purchasing from a company that uses pre-fabs or machine-made pieces. However, if you would like something that has been made from the heart, with care, traditional techniques, and with a love for the Earth in mind, then I'd love for you to purchase from me!
