Syzygy. Moonstone

Syzygy is defined as a pair of connected things, especially as a pair of opposites { Anima/Animus} , as well as having an astronomical meaning, referring to the alignment of three celestial bodies such as when the Moon and the Sun are in conjunction, for example, a solar eclipse. This ring features a fine cut round gemstone suggesting the overlaying of the Sun and Moon, on an elevated setting. This acts as a metaphor of how the Sun and Moon embrace each other during an eclipse, just as two people embrace one another in marriage or within other committed and devotional promises to each other. It also can symbolize the endurance of a lasting friendship or it can mark the devotional nature between yourself and a practice you are committing yourself to. The overlapping of two things, on a raised elevation, composed of the marriage of an antique ring setting with cast bat bones, creates a beautiful, wearable poem to mark your devotion to whatever you choose; a physical, visual reminder.


Inspired by sacred devotion, these rings mark what devotion can be to us: we are devoted to the living, the dead, as well as our dreams & ideas as well as even non-sentient objects & places.

 We are devoted to dreams that dissipate and people who disappoint us, who break our hearts. Sometimes we are asked to put our devotion aside. We carry on our devotion to people even when they have left us, either exiting the relationship or the world. We are devoted even when we gain nothing in return. We burn with the fire of devotion, and occasionally, it burns us back, consuming us. It can leave scars. 

But also~ it builds us up. We can find reciprocal devotion, even when it is not asked for. We gain purpose in our devotion, fulfillment. We grow our devotion over time, day by day. There is history, memory, knowledge, skill. A love that can be just ours, or one that is shared. A sense of belonging, peace.

These rings can be used as markers of devotion to wear close to the body- objects that can be imbued with spirit, that can become companions in devotion. These can be given meaning in many ways ~ romantic love - share them with lovers as markers of engagement or promise. Friendship. Distance between loves. Shared between family members, ~ bonds between people who care for one another.

They can also mark love for oneself. One of my earliest rings was conceived to act as a devotional ring for self-acceptance, committing to yourself despite the flaws that you’ve perhaps wrestled with your whole life. ~ To mark devotion to a dream or an achievement ~ or perhaps even the ending of a dream that you’ve had to slip into the river. Mourning rings in onyx to honor those who’ve left us. This is the history of rings ~ & I’ve tethered all of this to that, the heartache & the joy, while leaving room for you to add yours.

Bats and their cast wing and leg bones have long been a component I’ve used in my visual library as a way of creating a personal visual language. As nocturnal creatures, I feel a kinship with their natural predilection for the night time hours, but I’m also interested in how they use sonar to ‘see’, how as a metaphor bats as liminal creatures also remind us to look closer with our other senses, a way of ‘seeing the unseen.’ It’s my hope and intention that pairing them with other chthonic imagery and myth further adds to the visual meaning I’m aiming for, creating a collage of personal ideas while also tethering these physical jeweled objects to the spirit of the bat ( and other natural objects in the case of other jewels in my collection ) and to the spirit of the myths I’m invoking.

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.

Moonstone is known for its powerful psychic abilities. Used to protect empaths & sensitives from absorbing other people's emotions, it is also is known to be used during meditation for connecting to ones inner selves. As a romantic stone, it is known to strengthen the bonds between lovers when given as gifts, especially during the full moon.

As they are entirely natural, earth made stones, color and clarity will vary from stone to stone. Moonstone often has a milky appearance and natural inclusions that appear as lines or inner 'cracks.’ The flash will contain shades of blue, violet or teal, and occasionally hints of gold.

These jewels are hand cut and therefore may have very slight differences in size and may have small signs of the carver's hands along the edges. These are not fabricated by a machine, they are made by hand and therefore aren't uniformly perfect. The photographs accurately portray the quality of the stones and the cuts. 



This jewel is handmade to order, just for you, with care and focus. Please allow approximately 6 weeks for creation before shipping.
