This dainty little moonstone ring incorporates so many small details! Where the sterling silver band curls around there sits a tiny round moonstone. The subtle colours of this mystical stone are offset by the bolder bronze tones of the copper details beside it. Organic, natural and flowing, this ring feels like part of nature.
With a beautiful subtle blue shimmer and a slightly opalescent appearance, it is easy to see why moonstone has been a popular feature of jewellery for centuries.
Moonstones get their name from their likeness to the effect of light bouncing off the moon. The stone has been used in jewellery for centuries, dating back to ancient civilisation. The Romans admired moonstone as they thought it was born from the solidified rays of the moon. Both the Romans and Greeks associated moonstone with their lunar deities. In more recent history, the gem became popular during the Art Nouveau period when French goldsmith Rene Lalique and many others created large quantities of jewellery from the stone.
