This handcrafted statement ring features a gorgeous piece of Moonstone with a high blue flash in the light. The stone itself measures approximately 17mm x 17mm. The ring has been made with a solid sterling silver 11 gauge (2.5) ring band, a thick sterling silver hand-sawed backing, a fine silver crown bezel setting, and a sterling silver beaded trim. The ring has then been sanded, oxidized 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 8 1/2 (Australian size Q 1/2), but it can also be taken to any local jeweller to be sized up or down!

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.
