This handcrafted statement ring features three beautiful stones; a luminous green Prehnite, a beautiful pink Rhodochrosite and a gorgeous purple Iolite. The ring setting has been 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 molten sterling silver ball 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 made this ring slightly adjustable by hardening the ring band and only soldering one side of it to the backplate of the ring. This means that the band can gently be squeezed or loosened without loosing its shape, making it perfect for those who like to wear rings on different fingers or those with larger knuckles. Please note that this ring is best suited to fit sizes 8 to 9 1/2 (Australian sizes P 1/2 to S 1/2).

💎 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.
💎 RHODOCHROSITE LORE:
Incas believed that Rhodochrosite was the blood of their former kings and queens that had turned to stone. It is named after the Greek words ‘Rose’ and ‘Colour.’
Today, Rhodochrosite is known as a great confidence booster. It also balances and enhances love on all levels, allowing fuller love to enter one’s life. It balances mental and emotional processes and brings a sense of happiness and relief from ongoing stress. As well as this, Rhodochrosite is great for use in meditation, and helps calm the mind. It is also a healing stone, helping problems with stress and problems to do with the heart.
💎 IOLITE LORE:
Viking explorers who ventured far out into the Atlantic Ocean used thin pieces of Iolite as the world's first polarizing filter. Looking through an Iolite lens, they could determine the exact location of the sun and navigate safely to the New World and back. A property called pleochroism is very pronounced in Iolite, producing different colors when the stone is seen through different positions. Overall, Iolite appears as violet-blue or indigo, but in different positions may shift to a yellow-gray or honey color, and even to a clear light blue.
Iolite helps in recovering balance, and is recommended for those suffering from disorientation, lack of motivation, chronic disorganization, and distraction. It is great for helping to solve financial problems, and for those hoping to take more responsibility over their lives.
Iolite is also Iolite a stone of the muses, activating the visionary, creative side of the mind, and accessing thoughts and ideas beyond the ordinary. It inspires creative self-expression through writing, song, movement and other artistic endeavors. As well as this, Iolite is considered to be a wonderful gift for travellers, to help ensure that they will eventually safely return home.
