Earth and Comet
Open shank ring, sterling silver, fine silver, lapis lazuli, pyrite
Glittering lapis lazuli Earth sits beside a sparkling polished and natural faced pyrite Comet in this contemporary open shank ring. A thick gauge sterling silver band connects the two stones underneath, so they rest on either side of the finger. This design is so comfortable and modern, I love the feel and look of this ring.
Lapis lazuli, worn by royalty for thousands of years, most famously it was sacred to the ancient Egyptians who wore it to cover all their chakras especially the chest. They also ground it to use as makeup and paint. Lapis lazuli is said to aid in seeing the truth, give confidence, and facilitate communication. It is excellent for dealing with strong emotions such as grief, fear and anxiety. It is a gorgeous stone with speckles of pyrite that glimmer in deep indigo blue. It reminds me of the star filled night sky or looking down on the Earth from space.
Pyrite is said to be a highly protective stone, guarding the wearer from all kinds of negative energy. Deeply grounding and reflective it is known to help retain, process and recall information, as well as boost confidence and assertiveness. To me it feels so Earthy and grounding while encouraging dreaming up, and moving towards possibilities.
These lovely gems are set in fine silver and seated on solid sterling silver. I cast the ring band of solid sterling silver. The design of this ring allows it to fit a size 9 to 10 nicely
