Coral Shadowbox Ring

158.00

The design for this ring was inspired by the eclipse of August 2017 (Anyone else remember that being an extra intense and shadow-y portal time?). The "stones” for this design are made from old natural coral beads that I saw in half to form a cabochons. I love the way that the brilliant red coral contrasts with the dark, oxidized sterling silver backplate.

According to ancient Greek mythology, after Perseus killed the “sea monster” Medusa, he took her head and put it on the riverbank. After some time, he observed that the blood seeping from Medusa’s head had transformed the surrounding seaweed into a hard stone, thus creating Red Coral.

Coral was once believed to be a plant, but is now known to actually contain living animals called polyps. Coral is  result of accumulated skeletal masses from these polyps. Records dating back thousands of years confirm that coral was used in decorative art objects and jewelry. It was believed to prevent ill fortune and offer protection from skin disease when worn as a necklace. Dreams about coral are believed to foretell recovery from a long illness. Some groups of ancients believed that Mars was composed of red coral.

Silver is a metal known to conduct lunar energy, the archetypal feminine energy, mystery, introversion and the unconscious. It’s associated with the element of earth and activates all seven main chakras in the human body.

Because this item is handmade to order with natural materials, please expect some slight variation from piece to piece. Each is one of a kind. Please allow up to 12 days for production.

The preferred band style on this design is split shank, but if you have a request for a different type of band, we can likely accommodate.

As always, this item will arrive carefully and beautifully gift-wrapped.
