This handcrafted statement ring features a gorgeous piece of blue Azurite that measures approximately 19mm x 12mm. It has been made with a solid sterling silver 11 gauge (1.9mm) ring band, a thick sterling silver hand-sawed backing and a fine silver bezel setting. The ring has then been sanded smooth 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 made this ring in a size 10 1/2 (Australian size U 1/2), but it can also be taken to any local jeweller to be sized up or down!
💎 AZURITE LORE:
The gemstone Azurite had a rich history in ancient times. The ancient Chinese called it the 'Stone of Heaven,' believing it to open celestial gateways. To the inhabitants of Atlantis and the early Egyptians, Azurite was considered to be an extremely potent psychic stone. It was shrouded in mystery and its secrets were known only to the highest priests and priestesses. It was also revered by Greeks and Romans for its healing powers.
One of the main properties of Azurite is that it is thought to temper the mind, releasing confusion, stress and worry. It helps with indecision and doubt, restoring control and balance over emotions. It is generally considered to be a stone that releases its energy through constant touch, and so rubbing a piece of Azurite is thought to help aid its uses.
As well having these properties, Azurite is also help to assist with study, learning and general multi-tasking in life. It does this by enhancing focus, concentration and improving memory.
