BelongingTo The Underworld Part II: Moonstone

$160.00

Inspired by my ‘Belonging to The Darkness” ring series which embodies themes from the Persephone myth, this version is an update of the original 'Belonging to the Underworld' ring and features an antique setting married to two bat wing bones.


This ring is akin to an "engagement" ring, created in homage to the goddess Persephone, wife of Hades and Queen of the Underworld. Personally, it represents a way of showing a commitment, a belonging to something or someone, an idea, a specific period of time in your life, an emotion, and more potently, to the notion of belonging to yourself. This ring can also symbolize elements / aspects / memories that we are looking to let go of but still want represented in our lives: a symbol of self acceptance despite there being aspects of oneself that's undesirable or repressed. For me personally, it's a symbol of my ongoing journey of accepting my melancholia & ( at times ) paralyzingly sensitivity. It's a symbol of being strong & vulnerable. A symbol of meeting your shadow and allowing it to stay.

The ring stands 10mm off of the finger and features a 7.5mm faceted round moonstone and is cast in sterling silver, each hand finished to achieve our signature shade of gloomy gray.

 

Moonstone 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 Psychic 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, especially during a full moon.

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