Inspired by my ‘Belonging to The Darkness” ring series which embodies themes from the Persephone myth, this ring is a smaller, taller version. 

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, as such is the complex nature of the Persephone myth.

Much like its larger counterpart, this ring is comprised of an antique setting manipulated with my beloved sparrow claws grasping each side. A stunning, 8mm faceted dome shaped Labradorite has been set in the ring, acting as the precious jewel the claws are cradling / guarding. 

Growing up I had a lot of Labradorite jewelry, given to me for their helping properties, in particular for their ability to relieve anxiety & melancholy. It is also said to be used to dispel negativity & fear, acting as a kind of psychic armor to more troubling & turbulent emotions. As a 'sister' to moonstone, Labradorite is often associated with the more "darker" aspects of the Goddess, in her Crone form, full of the experience & wisdom of life and death, associated with the darker moon: waning through new moon phases.
It is also a stone of transformation, and is said to help those with intuitive gifts to awaken and realize their full potential as well as helping enhance creative talents. It also ranks as one of the most protective stones, shielding its wearer from negativity. Much like its 'sister' moonstone, Labradorite has been used and worn in many cultures and tribes for both its incredible natural beauty, and for its potent magical properties. 

 

Please understand that the color & flash of each stone will vary, however each one will possess these beautiful qualities that this stone is known for. Labradorite has many natural lines and inclusions, and color can vary from shades of green to shades of blue. 

This ring is entirely cast in sterling silver & hand darkened to achieve my signature shade of gloomy gray. It is lightly polished to highlight the amazing details. 

The ring is 0.9 of an inch (23.1 mm) at its widest and 1.04 inches tall (26.6 mm). It stands 0.3 of an inch (9.9mm) off the finger, making this much smaller than my other rings and comfortable for everyday wear.

*This design is also available in rose cut Moonstone & forthcoming in Onyx.
