This handcrafted statement ring features a lovely piece of light pink Rose Quartz that is paired with a beautiful Ethiopian Fire Opal, ethically sourced from the Wollo Province in north-eastern Ethiopia. The ring setting has been made with a solid sterling silver 1.9mm twisted ring band, a thick sterling silver hand-sawed backing, fine silver bezels around each stone, and molten sterling silver ball accents. The ring has then been sanded, oxidised in parts for contrast, and polished to a high shine. Like all my work, it is a completely unique piece made entirely by hand, using recycled silver, cruelty-free materials, and environmentally-friendly methods!
I have created this ring in a size 4 (Australian size H), but it can also be taken to any local jeweller to be sized up or down!
Ring Face Length: 17mm approx.

💎 ROSE QUARTZ LORE:
It is thought that Rose Quartz may have been used as a love token as early as 600 BC, and is still considered to be an effective talisman for love and relationships in modern times.
As well as aiding love and relationships, Rose Quartz also lowers stress, increases self-esteem, improves friendships and brings the wearer inner peace.
The Roman historian, Pliny the Elder described the Opal as a precious stone containing the fire of a Garnet, the resplendent purple of the Amethyst, and the sea-green glory of the Emerald. In Ancient times Opal was considered to be the most magical and mysterious gemstone, able to heal the body, provide luck, and strengthen the mind.
Opals help to calm their wearers, easing stress and depression. They are helpful with issues with anxiety, restless thoughts and racing minds, as they center the mind and promote positive dreams. As well as this, Opals are a wonderful protection stone, shielding the wearer from other peoples negative thoughts and energies. It is thought to be greatly beneficial when venturing into dangerous places.
Opals are also very seductive stones, associated with love, desire and passion.
