I have recently started making these rings and opted to use 24 gauge craft wire that is highly durable and stiff, rather than the softer silver coated copper wires available. The reason for this is that it is less likely to tarnish and copper based wires lose the silver coating very quickly.
Having said this, I do not know if the wire is allergy safe - so if you have a nickel allergy I don´t recommend purchasing one of these rings as I don´t know the exact composition of the wire so it is better to be cautious :)
The rings are made using beads so there is no chance of the stone falling out.
There are currently several different stones that I am working with and these are:
Rose Quartz (10mm bead)
Turquoise (8mm bead)
Red Jasper (8mm bead)
Lava (8mm bead)
Green or Brown Tiger Eye (8mm bead)
Green or Brown Tiger Eye (10mm bead)
Snowflake Obsidian (8mm bead)
Lapis Lazuli (8mm bead)
Opalite (8mm bead)
Malachite (8mm bead)
Cats Eye (8mm bead)
Apologies for the fact that there is currently no amethyst. I am working on this but the only beads I had when launching the collection were unsuitable sizes to work with for rings. I will make some amethyst rings as soon as I have the correct beads, however, so watch this space!
If you need some help to pick your stone, I have written a full guide in these section about the healing properties of the stones I work with, plus additional information of star signs that are relevant. I think my personal favourite is the red jasper - it reminds me of the Geldingadalir volcano erupting 30 miles from my home!
The least intrusive beads are the 8mm size - but if you want something that makes more of a statement I would recommend the 10mm. Anything larger that that would be too big because of the fact that the bead protrudes inside the ring. For this reason, sizing the rings can be a little tricky!
I can make these in any size, so just let me know when ordering. I sell a lot of rings and many women (myself included) are a size 7 (US sizes) on their ring finger and size 8 on their middle finger so I hope this helps as a guide. My teenage daughter is smaller than me so I made her a size 6 rose quartz and she was happy with that!
Please let me know the size in the message section when you check out your order.
