This handcrafted statement ring a gorgeous piece of pale pink Rose Quartz, paired with a stunning shimmering purple Iolite.

The ring has then been sanded, oxidized in parts for contrast, and polished to a high shine.

I have made this ring in a size 5 3/4 (Australian size L), but it can also be taken to any local jeweller to be sized up or down!

💎 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.
💎 IOLITE LORE:
Viking explorers who ventured far out into the Atlantic Ocean used thin pieces of Iolite as the world's first polarizing filter. Looking through an Iolite lens, they could determine the exact location of the sun and navigate safely to the New World and back. A property called pleochroism is very pronounced in Iolite, producing different colors when the stone is seen through different positions. Overall, Iolite appears as violet-blue or indigo, but in different positions may shift to a yellow-gray or honey color, and even to a clear light blue.
Iolite helps in recovering balance, and is recommended for those suffering from disorientation, lack of motivation, chronic disorganization, and distraction. It is great for helping to solve financial problems, and for those hoping to take more responsibility over their lives.
Iolite is also Iolite a stone of the muses, activating the visionary, creative side of the mind, and accessing thoughts and ideas beyond the ordinary. It inspires creative self-expression through writing, song, movement and other artistic endeavours. As well as this, Iolite is considered to be a wonderful gift for travellers, to help ensure that they will eventually safely return home.
