This handcrafted statement ring features a gorgeous piece of pink Rhodochrosite that is paired with a beautiful Moonstone that has a stunning rainbow flash in the light. The ring setting has been made with a solid sterling silver 11 gauge (1.9mm) ring band, a thick sterling silver hand-sawed backing and fine ssilver bezels around each stone. 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 5 (Australian size J 1/2), but it can also be taken to any local jeweller to be sized up or down!
Ring Face Length: 24mm approx.
Ring Face Width: 17mm approx.
💎 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.
💎 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.
