This listing is for a custom sparkling Sunstone ring, made to order especially for you!
To order, simply select the number of your favourite piece of high-grade Swedish Sunstone from the drop-down menu, then enter your ring size in the text box above it. I will then make you your very own Gem & Tonik custom piece within three business days!
This particular ring design features a solid sterling silver 11 gauge (2.5mm) ring band, a thick sterling silver hand-sawed backing, and a fine silver bezel setting. The ring is then sanded smooth, set with your chosen piece of Sunstone, then polished to a high shine. Each piece is made entirely by hand using cruelty-free materials and environmentally friendly methods.
*Please note that the completed rings in the photos are a guide as to how each piece will look, but as each stone is different, each finished piece will be unique! Stones will be set in the same way that they are laid out on my fingers in the photos. If you'd like me to set them horizontally, just send me a message after purchasing to let me know. :)
***PLEASE also note: Sunstones are natural stones, and often have internal fissures, little cracks and flaws that in my opinion add to their natural beauty. These fissures are normal for Sunstone and its formation in the earth. I've tried my best to photograph these stones as closely and accurately as possible, but please keep in mind that fissues may look different in person or from certain angles.****

💎 SUNSTONE LORE:
Sunstone is a member of the Feldspar family, and is named for its warm shades of gold, orange, reds and browns that sparkle like the sun. Inclusions of Goethite or Hematite refract light between the different crystal layers and produce an iridescent effect as the stone is viewed from various angles. In ancient Greece, Sunstone represented the sun god, bringing life and abundance to all fortunate enough to possess it. It was used often in the ornamentation of goblets and plates, and was believed to counteract poison and produce strength. Sunstone was also used by the Canadian Indians in rituals of the medicine wheel to show spirit guides the connection with the golden white healing light of the sun. During those ceremonies Sunstone was placed in the center of the medicine wheel, and it has been reported that during contact with the spirit guides, the stone emitted a golden glow.
Sunstone is considered to be a gem that brings openness, benevolence, warmth, strength, mental clarity, and the willingness and ability to bestow blessings upon others. Known as a joyful stone, Sunstone also inspires the nurturing of self in order to be of service to others. It restores the enjoyment of life, good nature and provides a sense of abundance.
