This handcrafted statement ring features two absolutely stunning stones; a gorgeous King's Manassa Turquoise and a beautiful piece of Labradorite with a deep blue flash. The ring itself has been made with a solid sterling silver 4.5mm double ring band, a thick sterling silver hand-sawed backing, fine silver bezel settings, and sterling silver accents. The setting has then been sanded smooth, oxidized and polished to a high shine. Like all my creations, this ring 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 9 (Australian size R 1/2), but it can also be taken to any local jeweller to be sized up or down!

💎 KING'S MANASSA TURQUOISE LORE:
Turquoise is perhaps the oldest stone in man's history, the talisman of kings, shamans, and warriors. Among the Ancient Egyptians, Persians and Chinese, Aztecs and Incas of South America, and Native North Americans, Turquoise was sacred in its adornment and for power, luck, and protection.
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.
Kings Manassa turquoise is mined at Manassa in south central Colorado. It was originally called the Lickskillet Mine, and was one of the first Turquoise deposits found in Colorado and the Southwest as well. The Manassa mine is believed to first have been mined by the Anasazi / Ancient Pueblo Indians. It is known for its blue-green to green colour with a golden or brown, non-webbed matrix.
💎 LABRADORITE LORE:
The Inuit peoples claim Labradorite fell from the frozen fire of the Aurora Borealis. In many cultures it is considered to be a Stone of Magic. Often a crystal used by shamans, diviners and healers throughout history, it is recommended for those who travel and embrace the universe seeking knowledge and guidance.
Labradorite is also an excellent stone to be used in aiding self-discovery, as it is can awaken one's own awareness of inner spirit, intuition and psychic abilities.
Labradorite is also the most powerful protector of the mineral kingdom, creating a shielding force throughout the aura and strengthening natural energies from within. It protects against the negativity and misfortunes of this world, and provides safe exploration into alternate levels of consciousness and in facilitating visionary experiences from the past or the future.
