Earth and Sun
Open shank ring, sterling silver, fine silver, lapis lazuli, rutilated quartz
Glittering lapis lazuli sits beside a gold streaked rutillated quartz 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.
Rulitalted quartz is quartz with golden needles of rutile within, which look like rays of golden light streak through the gem. It is a well loved gem and was sacred to the Vikings who called it Freya’s hair. This gem sends beams of positive energy to the wearer, and fills you with joy. It is said to illuminate the soul, promote spiritual growth, release the past, cleanse the aura, and dismiss fears, phobias and anxiety. You can lose track of time gazing at how the light moves along the golden rutile, it is gorgeous. A lighthearted gem and good vibrations gem, I always have one in my space.
These lovely gems are set in fine silver and seated on a solid sterling silver base, the ring band is cast of solid sterling silver. The design of this ring allows it to fit a 9.5 to 10 nicely
