This handcrafted ring features a stunning piece of pink Rose Quartz, paired with a brilliant blue Sleeping Beauty Turquoise. The setting has been made with a solid sterling silver 11 gauge (2.5mm) ring band, a thick sterling silver hand-sawed backing, fine silver bezels around each stone, and sterling silver ball accents. The ring has then been sanded smooth, 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 6 (Australian size L 1/2), but it can also be taken to any local jeweller to be sized up or down!

💎 ROSE QUARTZ LORE:
It is thought that Rose Quartz may have been used as a love token as early as 600 BC, and is still considered to be an effective talisman for love and relationships in modern times.
As well as aiding love and relationships, Rose Quartz also lowers stress, increases self-esteem, improves friendships and brings the wearer inner peace.
💎SLEEPING BEAUTY 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.
Sleeping Beauty Turquoise from Arizona has become one of the most important Turquoise mines in the world. The Mine was originally first found by the Native Americans during the Anasazi times, where the Turquoise was mined with hand tools and little bits were collected at a time. Sleeping Beauty Turquoise is famous for it's baby blue or "Robin's Egg" blue colour, and it's name comes from the mountain where it is mined, which resembles a sleeping woman laying on her back with arms crossed.
