Belonging to the darkness. Moonstone & sterling silver.


This special ring is a play on both the Persephone ring and the Lydia ring, converging dark romance with perfect casts of sparrow claws. Here, this ring represents a kind of "engagement" ring, and I was certainly thinking of Lady Persephone of myth, belonging to Hades, Lord of the Underworld/afterlife.  For me personally, it represents a way of showing a commitment, a belonging to something or someone, an idea or a time or even an emotion, perhaps even if these are things that we are looking to let go of but still want represented somehow in our lives.

This ring is comprised of an antique setting manipulated with my beloved sparrow claws grasping each side. A stunning faceted dome shaped moonstone has been set in the ring. Moonstone is one of my absolute favorite natural stones, at its name suggests, it is closely tied to the moon, with some cultures believing the stone is solidified moon rays, while others think of them as embodiments of the moon's tears. Acting as a kind of armor, it is thought to protect its wearer from not only dark nights, but dark times; it helps sooth grief, loss, and other emotional turbulence. It is also a great tool for meditation and clairvoyance, & has been used in jewelry since ancient times for both its unique beauty and magic.

As a romantic stone: moonstone is thought to keep the passion alive between lovers when one gives it to another, making it perfect for my original intent of this ring. In some cultures, it is known to be a common wedding gift given to a newly married couple.

This ring reads a little smaller on the hand than many of my other designs, making it suitable for everyday wear while still making a statement.

This version is cast in sterling silver, hand darkened to achieve my signature shade of gloomy gray, and then highlighted so the darkness recedes in the details. The beautiful rose cut facets add another textural element to the ring, modern lines against the high detail of the setting and sparrow claws.

This ring is an eyelash over an inch wide and an inch tall, standing half an inch off the finger.

****Please note that moonstone is a natural stone so clarity and color will vary from stone to stone. Moonstone often has a milky appearance as well as inclusions within the stone. The flash will contain shades of blue, and teal, and occasionally a dark gold.
