This handcrafted statement ring features three of the most beautiful stones I have ever worked with: a stunning Lapis Lazuli, and two Moonstones filled with a magical blue flash! The stones have been set in a ring made with a solid sterling silver 4.5mm double ring band, a thick sterling silver hand-sawed backing, fine silver bezel settings around each stone, and solid sterling silver trims and accents. The ring has then been sanded, oxidized and polished to a high shine. Like all my creations, 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!
Ring length: 34mm approx.
Ring width: 23mm approx.
💎 LAPIS LAZULI LORE:
In ancient times Lapis Lazuli was most highly regarded because of its beautiful colour and the valuable ultramarine dye derived from it. Its name comes from the Latin lapis, "stone," and the Persian lazhuward, "blue."
Lapis Lazuli is used to stimulate wisdom and good judgment in the practical world. It aids intellectual analysis in archaeologists and historians, problem solving for lawyers, and creates new ideas for inventors and writers.
Lapis Lazuli is a powerful crystal for activating the higher mind and enhancing intellectual ability. It stimulates the desire for knowledge, truth and understanding, and aids the process of learning. It is excellent for enhancing memory.
💎 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.
