This Swan Song Ring has been set with Labradorite instead of the usual Moonstone, and was created in our Philadelphia Studio It is ready to ship to you within 5 business days of purchase. 
Please note: this Swan Song ring is a size 4.5 and can not be resized before leaving the studio. 
The first incarnation of this ring came shortly after the 2010 release of the movie 'Black Swan.' While this new version carries the name that partly inspired the ring, like many other things in life, its meaning as a visual metaphor, and as a talisman has evolved as it is now coupled with the stunning beauty and power of the moonstone.

An emotive ring featuring two unique components, a vintage feather ring has been married to a stunning fine cut round labradorite. 

The "swan's song" is an ancient belief that the muted swan, although glorious in its beauty, is unable to sing. It is only until it is on the precipice of death, when it sings the most beautiful song, & only once:

"The silver Swan, who living had no Note,
when Death approached, unlocked her silent throat.
Leaning her breast against the reedy shore,
thus sang her first and last, and sang no more:
"Farewell, all joys! O Death, come close mine eyes!
"More Geese than Swans now live, more Fools than Wise."

-Orlando Gibbons.

This ring stands 13mm off of the finger and is cast entirely in sterling silver at a small, independent casting company here in Philadelphia.

The feathers cradle a stunning 11mm fine cut round labradorite, with its pointed culet facing downwards, a kind of symbolic inversion of this ring's original incarnations.
