This handcrafted statement ring features a three gorgeous stones; a luminous piece of green Prehnite, a beautiful blue Sierra Nevada Turquoise, and a stunningl Moonstone that has a stunning blue flash in the light. The ring setting has been made with a solid sterling silver split-shank ring band, a thick sterling silver hand-sawed backing, fine silver bezels around each stone and sterling silver trims and accents. The ring has then been sanded, oxidised in parts for contrast, 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 a size 10 1/4 (Australian size U), but it can also be taken to any local jeweller to be sized up or down!

💎 PREHNITE LORE:
Prehnite gets its name from the 18th Century Dutch Colonel that discovered it, Hendrik Von Prehn. It was, in fact, one of the first gemstones to be named after a historical figure.
Above all other things, Prehnite is said to be a gemstone that brings unconditional love. As well as this, Prehnite can protect its wearer, both physically and emotionally. It can aid in Spiritual Growth, and help with visions, psychic abilities and forecasting.
Worn during exams and business presentations, Prehnite can aid with the absorption of knowledge. It can also help clear the mind and be used during Meditation.
💎 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.
💎 SIERRA NEVADA 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.
The Sierra Nevada turquoise mine is located high up in the mountains between the Candelaria and Apache Blue mines in Nevada, USA. It is known for producing visually exquisite stones with a huge variety in colours ranging from a clear light blue to a deep, vibrant green. The matrix patterns in Sierra Nevada Turquoise are equally stunning in their variety, and can range from brown, gold and black, making them perfect for exquisite pieces of jewellery.
