This handcrafted statement ring features a gorgeous piece of light blue Larimar, paired with a stunning marquise shaped Moonstone. The setting has been made with an solid sterling silver split-shank ring band, a thick sterling silver hand-sawed backing, fine silver bezels around each stone and sterling silver accents. The ring has then been sanded 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 created this ring in sizes 8 3/4 - 9 (Australian sizes R - R 1/2), but it can also be taken to any local jeweller to be sized up or down!
Total Ring Length: 38mm approx.

💎 LARIMAR LORE:
Larimar is found only in the Dominican Republic in the Caribbean. It occurs where crystals grow together within basaltic lava cavities. The presence of copper in the stone helps to create beautiful translucent shades of soft blues, whites and turquoise. The more intense the blue, the rarer and higher the value of the stone.
Larimar is a crystal that promotes serenity and relaxation. It can help relieve stress, lower anxiety, heal and promote a pleasant atmosphere around you. As a crystal of the Throat Chakra, Larimar can help with communication. It is also regarded as a great stone for singers or public speakers. As well as this, Larimar is thought to be a great stone to help in finding a soulmate.
Please note: Larimar is photosensitive and therefore it is recommended for the stone to not be exposed to extreme heat or light.
💎 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.
