BLISSFUL DERMIS RING
Sterling silver, 14k yellow gold, black gahnospinel, blue topaz, blue sapphire.
Custom made Dermis ring with double textured overlapping silver band, tube set topaz and sapphire faceted stones, bezel set black Gahnospinel cushion cut. 14 karat yellow gold surrounds each stone setting to nicely contrast with the oxidized silver textured layer. The lower band is polished to a bright silver.
BLACK GAHNOSPINEL 14MM - HARDNESS 8
Facets on the surface of this cushion black gahnospinel catch the light, giving the cabochon a distinctive look. This stone is perfectly suited for gothic and vintage-style designs, and pairs well with white metal settings. The hardness makes it suitable for any type of jewelry, even those that see the most wear and tear.
Though both are variations of spinel, gahnospinel is richer in zinc than spinel and yet not quite as rich as gahnite. Gahnospinel is a transitional stone and embodies certain properties of each gahnite and spinel. This hard stone takes on a very high polish, making it a great alternative to more expensive black gemstones.
The cushion cut is a classic style; it combines features of the oval cut with a deep cut and large facets.
Spinel is a stone of revitalization, and it can re-energize all aspects of yourself. This makes it an excellent stone for workaholics.
Spinel is considered to be a soothing stone because of its calming energy.
It will help release your stress and anxieties, and it will replenish your low energy levels.
This stone will bring you inspiration. It’s a stone that will also bring you new hope!
BLUE ZIRCON 5MM ROUND - HARDNESS 7.5
Due to its high refractive index and strong dispersion, zircon has great brilliance and intensive fire. The luster is vitreous to a brilliant sheen.
Its strong luster and intense fire gives it a real sparkle that is comparable to Diamond.
Blue zircon helps repel negativity, invites more happiness and love into the lives and is supportive during spiritual healing.
It’s all about positively influencing the state of mind which can lead us to have better understanding, more positive energy and more positive behavior.
It attracts positive manners that help us to gain more wisdom, self-esteem, self-confidence and wealth. More self-confidence leads to better judgment and decisions that affect our life. It also helps us to block negativity that may come to our lives again. In turn, the possibility to enjoy better future is in our hands.
BLUE SAPPHIRE 2.5MM ROUND - HARDNESS 9
Sapphire (like ruby) is a gem variety of corundum classified as a precious stone. Sapphire is hard and durable, and is found in a wide range of colors, making it an extremely versatile stone suitable for any form of jewelry. Sapphires in any color other than blue are referred to as 'fancy' sapphires. Sapphire gets its color from titanium and iron oxides; the depth of color depends on the amount of oxides in the stone.
In ancient times, some believed that the sky itself was an enormous sapphire into which the Earth was embedded; sapphires are credited in folklore as being sacred, of conveying wisdom, prophecy and divine favor.
Blue Sapphire increases/enhances intuition, mental clarity and spiritual power, all of which can assist in personal and spiritual growth. A stone of spiritual healing and spiritual truth, Blue Sapphire is useful when channeling healing energies from the Angelic Realm or a higher source.
