The Jeweled Outsider. Labradorite Ring.


Dear reader,

When I was a little kid,  my father gifted me a children’s book, By the Light of the Silvery Moon. It wasn’t as popular as Where the Wild Things Are was and still is, but it has a similar theme; a young child gets in trouble with her parents and escapes under the hedge outside her house into another world. Eventually she finds her way back home, to where she belongs. 

Lately I’ve been thinking about these stories and how there might not be a way back ‘home’ for some of us, those who always have felt like outsiders, slightly out of step with the frantic pace of the world and its horrors, more content to live on the edge of things, in our other worlds. Of course there is a melancholy to this; the possibility of being misunderstood, questioned, or even threatened in these increasingly intense times. Our homes are the ones we build ourselves, we choose our family or exist in more solitary situations. 

This ring, featuring a two headed snake ( a personal symbol for me of the other, the outsider ) nestles its two heads together above its tail’s end. Tiny and tactile tears, reminiscent of our grief moths and grief snake bangles, are featured on either side of the ring for rubbing / touching in times of anxiety or meditation. 

Much like one of my oldest rings, The Belonging to the Darkness ring, this is a ring of laying claim to yourself, while also being designed to exist as a ceremonial band. Comfortable on the finger, it can easily be worn daily and features a jeweled Onyx faceted tear.

A life cast snake has been manipulated to create this two headed serpent ring. 

This ring represents an eternal commitment to a person, an idea, a spiritual belief, or, most importantly, to one’s self. Over the course of history, jewelry has been used as tokens of remembrance, as symbols of love, as talismans and amulets. This ring is imbued with all of these functions and it is up to the wearer to activate which particular function they feel the intuition to commemorate.


- Solid Sterling Silver 

- Sits approximately 6.5mm off of the finger 

- 8 x 13mm fine cut pear labradorite

- Oxidized to achieve our signature shade of stormy gray and then hand finished to reveal the shining silver highlights underneath 


Labradorite is known for its healing properties, in particular for its ability to relieve anxiety & melancholy. It is also said to be used to dispel negativity & fear, acting as a kind of psychic armor to protect against 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.

As they are entirely natural, earth made stones, color and clarity will vary from stone to stone.  Labradorite has natural lines and inclusions and varies in shades of green (teal, swamp green, olive green) to shades of (light grey to dark) blue. If you have any concerns over the stone that will be chosen for you, please contact us after making your purchase so we may best assist you.

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.
