This handcrafted statement ring features an incredible piece of faceted Moonstone that's backed with a sliced of Red Jasper. This means that the two gems work together to produce a stunning pink hue throughout the stone, that also flashes blue and purple depending on the way that the light hits it. The stone itself measures approximately 14mm x 10mm, and the ring setting has been made with a solid sterling silver triple ring band, a thick sterling silver hand-sawed backing, a fine silver crown bezel around the stone, and sterling silver trims and accents. It's then been sanded smooth, oxidised in parts for contrast and polished to a high shine. Like all my work, 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 10 (Australian size T 1/2), but it can also be taken to any local jeweller to be sized up or down!
Total Ring Face Length: 22mm approx.

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.
💎RED JASPER LORE:
