Silver and Carnelian Cocktail Ring - Ancient Armor Inspired - The Seeker

I almost don't know where to begin with this ring! I keep finding myself inspired by ancient armor and this time around I was looking as shields, I think I like the power that is associated with armor it is intriguing. I have adorned the 'shield' of this ring with opposing arrows and what I would call wings, there is a cut out on either side of the Carnelian. Oh the Carnelian, first of all it is recycled, it was taken out of an antique bracelet, it is a very unusual cut which is what I really love about it. The carnelian in the ring pictured weighs 2.09 carats. The more I work with Carnelian the more I fall in love with it, it is actually one of the oldest known gemstones and was popular in ancient Rome. Carnelian is said to increase creativity, bring good luck and positive energy while clearing negative energy away.

This ring in the pictures has sold your ring will be made to order, I suggest ordering this ring a half size under your ring size as the open top makes this ring fit differently, the shield is just over 1.3 inches long.

*Fun Fact* - Carnelian was worn on the hand in ancient Egypt to still anger, as well as jealousy, envy and hatred.
