This handcrafted statement ring features three incredible stones; a faceted Angel Aura Quartz, a Moonstone with a gorgeous flash of colour, and a stunning rose cut Himalayan Clear Quartz that each sit above a beautiful rainbow Aurora Opal. The stones unite together in a relationship that complements both nature and modern day alchemy, resulting in delightful shimmers and colours that dance in the light, and bounce off each stone's facet as the ring moves. The ring setting has been made with a solid sterling silver split triple ring band with a floral pattern at its center, a thick sterling silver hand-sawed backing, fine silver bezels around each stone, sterling silver trims, two sterling silver crescent moons, sterling silver ball accents, and two accents forged by hand and hammer from 14 karat Rose Gold. It has then been sanded, oxidized in parts for contrast, and polished to a high shine. Like all my work, this ring is a completely unique piece made entirely by hand and hammer, using recycled precious metals, cruelty-free materials and environmentally-friendly methods.
I have created this ring in a size 10 (Australian size T 1/2).

💎 ANGEL AURA QUARTZ LORE:
Aura Quartz crystals are Clear Quartz pieces that have been permanently treated by fusing them with other metals through electrostatics with gold. Though artificially enhanced by modern techniques, these crystals utilize the ancient powers of alchemy and synergy. This new color layer created on the quartz can intensify LORE of its original elements, as well as creating unique energies of its own.
Angel Aura Quartz is Clear Quartz that has been bonded with Platinum & Silver. It is thought to help stimulate love & the spirit, promotes peace and serenity and to help strengthen the bond with guardian angels.
💎 MOONSTONE LORE:
Moonstone has been used in Roman jewellery for nearly two thousand years, as the Romans believed it was born from solidified rays of the moon. It has used even longer in the Orient, and has always been a sacred stone in India with a special significance for lovers, and is a traditional wedding gift there. It was a popular choice for jewellers in the Art Nouveau period, and in Europe was believed to reconcile estranged lovers and to cure sleeplessness.
Legendary as the Traveller's stone, Moonstone is great for protection at night or on the water. It is a great stone to keep during a first love or any new relationship. It helps creativity, confidence and self expression, and helps its wearer be more successful in their day to day working activities. It is also considered to be the ultimate fertility crystal.
💎 HIMALAYAN CLEAR QUARTZ LORE:
Himalayan Quartz is a rare and ancient variety of Quartz that formed within the Himalayan Mountains, running through Nepal and Bhutan, and creating the border between India and China. It is almost always gathered by hand, due to the fact that it is near impossible for machinery and heavy tools to reach the mountains where they are found. The majority of Himalayan Quartz gathered has a smoky look or is full of red Hematite inclusions, but the rarest and most beautiful pieces found are so clear that you can see through them completely.
In regards to their history, Quartz crystals have been thought of as a source of light to mankind since ancient times. Highly valued by spiritual leaders and healers as well as scientists, quartz crystals have played a key role in our development over the last few thousand years. Cultures like the Native American Indians, African tribes, Ancient Egyptians, Aztecs and Roman used quartz for meditation, healing rituals, spiritual development and magic.
Today, Clear Quartz is thought to be a crystal that brings clarity, energy and power to its wearer. It is said to help bring balance into ones life, aid in manifestation, and help ones creative drive. As well as this, Himalayan Clear Quartz is thought to radiate a calming energy and provide a shield to protect from negativity.
💎 AURORA OPAL LORE:
Aurora Opals are lab-created Opals that use Silica (the natural compound that all Opals are made of) and combine it with Polymer using a complex layering process, creating incredible swirly plays of colour in the most gorgeous colours. Unlike natural Opals that are extremely delicate, Aurora Opal are stronger, more resistant to chemicals, and not susceptible to color fading.
Aurora Opals are considered to be wonderful stones for improving ones mood, creativity, independence, growth and self-esteem. It's said to be powerful in reducing anger, promoting a sense of joy and fulfillment, increasing memory and helping to guide enthusiasm in areas of creativity. As well as this, Aurora Opals are thought to improve both mystical and psychic powers.
