This Ring Stack is inspired by Iðunn, the Norse Goddess of Youth and Springtime. It is comprised of three rings, crafted by hand with high-grade semi-precious stones, fine silver and sterling silver. These gems have been meticulously chosen and researched based on their history, connection to each other, and the metaphysical properties each stone has been said to hold both in the present day and in cultures throughout history.
The Iðunn Ring Stack features a 5mm Rose Quartz on a 1.4mm ring band, a 5mm Lapis Lazuli on a 2.5mm twisted band, and a 3mm Peridot on a 1.4mm band. To order, simply select your ring size from the drop down menu, and I will then create a ring stack especially for you. Like all my work, these rings are made entirely by hand, using recycled silver, environmentally friendly methods and cruelty-free materials. Each ring can either be stacked together or worn separately, making them the perfect little family to adorn your fingers and bring friendship into your life.
💗 Rose Quartz from Madagascar: for promoting care and compassion, kind-hearted discussions, and for bestowing the confidence to make new friends.
💙 Lapis Lazuli from Afghanistan: for developing new friendships, strengthening existing friendships, and aiding in honest, positive communication with friends.
💚 Peridot from Arizona, USA: for attracting new friends, reducing envy and resentment, and bringing happiness and joy into a friendship.
★ Please Note: As these stacks are made to order, they take approximately 3 business days to create. The completed rings in the photos are a guide as to how each piece will look, but as each stone is natural, each finished stacking set will be unique and made especially for you. If you'd like to see examples of the variations in colour or patterns of each gemstone, you can peruse the other stacking rings I have on my website, or watch my Instagram stories, where I share videos of completed pieces daily before posting them out to their forever homes.
✨ The Goddess Iðunn:
Iðunn is the Norse Goddess of Youth and Springtime. Her name means 'she who renews,' and she is said to reside in Asgard. In several texts, Iðunn is described as the wife of the skald of the court of Asgard, the bard and poet Bragi, who had a hand in narrating some of Norse mythology’s best-known tales. She is the keeper of an eski (a wooden box made of ash wood and often used for carrying personal possessions) within which she keeps apples. The apples are bitten into by the gods when they begin to grow old and they then become young again. It was said that the Gods depended greatly greatly upon Iðunn's good faith and care, and that she was a friend to all, having a light, spirited and somewhat naive personality. Iðunn’s mythic tradition resides almost exclusively in the tale of her abduction by the shapeshifting giant Thjazi. The Giant persuaded Loki to lure Iðunn into a dark forest, and then seized the young goddess. He flew away with her to his home in Jotunheimr (the realm of the Frost Giants), until Loki eventually returned to free her.
