This handcrafted statement ring a gorgeous piece of pale blue Dry Creek Turquoise, paired with a stunning moonstone that has a gorgeous blue flash in the light. The ring has been made with a solid sterling silver split-shank ring band, a thick sterling silver hand-sawed backing, fine silver bezel settings and a sterling silver trims and accents. The ring has then been sanded, oxidized, 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 made this ring in a size 6 1/2 (Australian size M 1/2), but it can also be taken to any local jeweller to be sized up or down!

💎 DRY CREEK 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.
Dry Creek Turquoise comes from a small Turquoise mine outside of Austin, Nevada in Lander County. It is not treated or colour enhanced and is revered for its light whitish - blue Turquoise color. Dry Creek Turquoise has gained much popularity over the years with its creamy white or pale blue colouring, and golden to cocoa brown matrix. High grade Dry Creek Turquoise has beautiful light brown, golden yellow or orange webbed matrix. Dry Creek Turquoise is also referred to as "Sacred Buffalo" Turquoise.
💎 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.

❤ COMBINED SHIPPING:
I offer combined shipping on all my items, so you can purchase as many of my creations that you like, and not pay any extra!
❤ PRODUCT PHOTOS:
All photos are taken outside in natural sunlight in my garden. Please allow for slight variations in colour, as some monitors, browsers and phone screens display colour differently.
❤ MADE BY HAND:
My items are made entirely by my hands, and not from moulds, casts or machinery. Each piece takes a great deal of time to make, and I put a little bit of my heart into everything I create. This means that my work may not always look like pieces that are mass produced. To show this, I try to take clear photos outside in natural light, and from different angles so you can see each piece in its entirety.
If you are looking for something that looks like it came from a catalogue or big box retail store, then I would recommend purchasing from a company that uses pre-fabs or machine-made pieces. However, if you would like something that has been made from the heart, with care, traditional techniques, and with a love for the Earth in mind, then I'd love for you to purchase from me!
