This handcrafted statement ring features a gorgeous piece of Purpurite that measures approximately 22mm x 15mm. It has been made with a solid sterling silver 4.5mm low-dome ring band, a thick sterling silver 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 created this ring in a size 7 1/2 (Australian size O 1/2), but it can also be taken to any local jeweller to be sized up or down!
Purpurite gets it's name from the Latin word 'purpura', meaning purple. It is considered by many to be a stone of freedom, allowing us to see the psychological barriers that keep us chained to the secure yet deadening routines of daily life, and giving us the inspiration to break free from them.
As well as this, Purpurite is thought to be a stone confidence and clarity of speech, especially for those in vocations requiring public speaking, as it encourages thoughts to be communicated in a clear and focused way. It is also regarded to be a wonderful stone for physical healing.
