This handcrafted statement ring features a stunning piece genuine Hubei Turquoise that is an incredible blue colour with a chocolate-brown matrix. The stone itself measures approximately 15mm x 16mm, and the ring setting has been made with a solid sterling silver 16 gauge (1.4mm) ring band, a thick sterling silver hand-sawed backing and a fine silver bezel surrounding the Turquoise. The ring has then been sanded and polished to a high shine. Like all my work, it is a completely unique piece made entirely by my hands, using recycled silver, cruelty-free materials, and environmentally-friendly methods!
I have created this ring in a size 6 3/4 (Australian size L), but it can also be taken to any local jeweller to be sized up or down!
💎HUBEI TURQUOISE LORE:
Turquoise is perhaps the oldest stone in man's history, the talisman of kings, shamans, and warriors.
Wearing Turquoise is said to bring strength, protection from harm, psychic sensitivity and good fortune. It is a symbol of friendship, aids wearers while traveling and brings peace to the home.
Hubei Turquoise is unique in that it is found in the Hubei province in China, is famous for its dramatic combinations of bold blues, greens, and dark matrices. As mines around this region are beginning to close, it's rarity and value is set to increase significantly over the next five years.
Hubei Turquoise often carries a slightly different vibration than to other types of Turquoise. It is especially useful for clearing the Throat Chakra, and blockages of suppressed self-expression. As jewellery it is worn by men and women alike, and considered a promise of fidelity and protectiveness to a lover or partner. It is used in sacred prayer beads, adorns musical instruments, prayer wheels and bells, and a Turquoise rosary is said to relate prayer to whatever deity is being invoked. As a gift, Hubei Turquoise is said to increase prosperity and luck.
