This gorgeous indigo blue lapis stone has tiny specks of pyrite that look like the midnight sky! The polki cut lapis stone is approximately 12 x 17mm, about 10 carats, and is set in a handmade fine silver bezel on sterling silver base with hand-coined edges.
The handcrafted sterling silver band is 3/8" wide, with an organic texture, and is very comfortable to wear. To bring out the details, I have added a patina and then polished the ring to a satin shine.
The ring in the photo measures a size 8.5 on a mandrel but fits at least a half size smaller. If you need a different size I have a wonderful collection of these stones from 7-10 carats each and can make a ring in your size! The 5th picture shows the different stone sizes in relation to each other.
Just select your stone size and then your ring size from the drop down menus. Because of the wide band, I recommend going up at least a half size from your normal ring size.
If you are unsure of your ring size, I can send you a ring sizer at no charge, just convo me with a request and your address and I will send you one.
Lapis lazuli has long been associated with strength and courage, and it is believed to ward off evil. The Sumerians believed that the spirit of their gods lived within the stone. That theme was adopted by the ancient Egyptians, who drew a connection between the speckling of the stone and the glittering stars in the night sky.
It was used in the Middle Ages by European artists, who ground it as pigment for their paint to make the color aquamarine.
Comes artfully packaged, perfect for gift giving. Contact me if you need expedited shipping so I can give you a quote for the additional cost.

If you have ordered a ring and the size is not right and you need to have it resized, I will be happy to do it but there is a $15 stocking fee plus shipping costs. So it is much better to have the right size from the beginning! I sell ring sizers, and the cost of the sizer will be refunded to you if you purchase a ring from me after.
For domestic orders I ship USPS First Class Mail, and shipping costs include delivery confirmation. If you prefer Priority Mail, you can choose to upgrade at checkout for an additional $3.75. The USPS says that First Class takes 2-5 days and Priority Mail 1-3 days, but neither is guaranteed in that time frame.
If you need it sooner, please send me a message and we can discuss rates and options.
In regards to customs fees: International customers are responsible for all fees imposed, including import taxes, customs duties, and fees levied by the buyer's country. Additional charges for customs clearance must be borne by the recipient; I have no control over these charges and cannot predict what they may be. Customs policies vary widely from country to country; you should contact your local customs office for further information. When customs clearance procedures are required, it can cause delays of weeks or months. I do not refund original shipping charges for buyers who refuse items due to not wanting to pay the customs charges applied by their country.
