Water Element Ring
Water Element Ring
The Water Ring features four rectangular crystals lined up in a row. The crystals have subtle differences in height and it reminds me of the movement in water, ripples and waves going across it. The ring has very natural aquatic coloring, with greener stones on the edges and bluer stones in the center & it is the most minimalist of the Element Rings.
What it Represents:
Not manmade, polished, or cut.... these raw stones come straight from the Earth looking this pretty! I love that with this jewelry, I am able to wear a little piece of actual nature, to remind me of this big beautiful world I am lucky enough to live in. My intention for the Elements Collection is to celebrate this beautiful world, to help us feel grounded and more connected to nature.
The ancients believed that the world is made up of four basic elements: Fire, Water, Air, and Earth. And that human beings are made of and governed by these same elements. The elements are meant to balance each other. Astrology teaches that we all have a different balance of the four elements, which makes up our unique personalities.
Fire: Confident, strong and passionate. Stimulated by adventure and exercise.
Water: Peaceful, trusting, and perceptive to surroundings. Full of emotion.
Air: Joy and communication. Stimulated by creativity and imagination.
Earth: Grounding and stable. Good with hard work and logic.
Whether you are grateful to a God who created this nature for you, or want to feel connected to the Universe you are a part of, I hope these pieces can remind you of the beauty that is all around you in this world!
Made with blue and green variations of Tourmaline (October's birthstone). The stones shine brighter with sunlight shining through them, and are a more muted darker color when looked at in the shade.
The process: It begins with a handmade hammered band, which gives the ring a lot of pretty texture. Raw crystals are sorted through to find the best ones, and carefully placed onto the rings with the positioning just right, puzzle piecing the stones together, and the prettiest side facing upward. After creating a beautiful design, the ring and the base of the crystals are carefully hand painted with conductive paint. Using an electric current, metal deposits onto the ring and around the base of the stones for 15+ hours. This slow build up of metal creates a unique and organic looking setting that very securely holds the stones in place. The ring is tumbled, hand-polished, and can be left as is in silver or it can be plated in the thickest possible plating of 18k gold or rose gold. Long story short... a whole lot of time and love is put into this little beauty!
This ring is handcrafted with the very highest quality metal & stones. If ordered in silver you'll be able to wear it forever without ever needing it to be redipped since it's solid silver through and through (so I recommend choosing silver if you are hard on your rings). Or you can have it heavily plated in gold or rose gold (still as high of quality, you just may need us to redip it for you someday down the road). These rings will ship sooner if ordered in silver, longer if ordered in gold or rose gold. See FAQ for exact processing times.
