This delicate gemstone bangle features a gorgeous Moonstone crescent Moon that has is a gorgeous blue flash in the light. The stone itself measures approximately 18mm x 14mm, and the bangle has been made with a dainty solid sterling silver 16 gauge (1.4mm) bangle, a thick sterling silver hand-sawed backing, a fine silver serrated bezel around the stone, and a sterling silver twisted trim. The setting has then been sanded, oxidised in parts for contrast, and then polished to a high shine. Like all my work, It is a completely unique piece made entirely by hand using recycled silver, environmentally-friendly methods and cruelty-free materials!
The diameter of this bangle is approximately 63mm, fitting a medium sized wrist.
Please note that I have created this piece to be quite delicate, so I'd recommend removing it whenever engaging in exercise or other strenuous activity. If your bangle does get bent out of shape over time, simply slip it over a wine glass or drinking glass to ease it back to its original shape!
💎 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.
