Aquamarine and Ruby Ring - Size 9
Handcrafted copper jewelry made by me at home in my studio from the finest raw materials that mother nature has to offer. Sustainably harvested and crafted into fashionable heirloom quality jewelry.
This faceted Aquamarine ring has a beautiful balance of polished and raw materials. The stone is so beautiful to look at and the copper gives it a more raw down to earth feel. Features an open back style to allow the light to illuminate the facets in the stone. Fused together with a second chevron style band with a small Ruby stone.
Made through a process of electroforming with copper for 16 hours. The copper is hand aged with a rich vintage patina to pull out some of the details. The copper has been sealed to help preserve the finish.
To further preserve the finish, I recommend that you don't submerge it in water for long periods of time. This would include things like showering, swimming and washing dishes. It is ok to wash your hands, just make sure to dry the ring well.
The sealer is also supposed to help with protecting your finger from turning green but in my experience I have found that my finger will turn green when my hands are sweaty or if i wear it while sleeping. The green will not hurt you and can easily be washed off with soap and water.
Everyone reacts differently with copper and some people don't turn green at all. Many people don't mind the green because of the healing properties you receive from the copper.
Properties of Aquamarine:
Aquamarine properties contain the healing, vibrant powers of our ancient seas. Evolved over millions of years, this stone rocks when it comes to soothing unpleasant emotions such as grief or loneliness. Aquamarine is an essential component to a healing crystal collection because it helps to reconnect us to the life-giving waters of the earth. Summoning the legendary spirit of seafarers, sailors, and magical mermaids, this gemstone reflects the deep layers of our vast oceans and its various shades of cool blues and greens. Aquamarine is also known to enhance feelings of peacefulness by encouraging inner strength and bravery, whatever the situation.
Properties of Ruby:
Wear or carry Ruby to overcome exhaustion and lethargy. It stimulates circulation and amplifies energy and vitality to the whole system. However, those who are highly sensitive or irritable may find this stone over-stimulating or uncomfortable to wear. Ruby has been known to calm hyperactivity in some individuals.
Ruby’s intense energy sharpens the mind, bringing a heightened awareness and excellent concentration. It promotes a courageous attitude, and may increase one’s success in controversies and disputes.
Ruby helps reduce fear of the paranormal and evil. It banishes nightmares, and guards against psychic and psychological attack. It is a shielding crystal, protecting the home from fire and intruders, and is good to wear discreetly to stay safe at night.
