PROVENANCE

STONE: Originates in Sri Lanka, in small alluvial mine deposits. Considered environmentally and socially responsible for the small scale mining processes, and unlike African moonstone, no child or slave labour is employed in its mining or cutting.
METAL: North American sourced silver. Please contact us for information regarding recycled or FairTrade gold options.

DETAILS


The two ring set is shown in a brushed satin finish.

*Shown with the 4mm Rose Quartz Solitaire, not included in this listing. Rainbow Moonstones (which are technically colourless labradorite) owe their flash to lamellations of two separate substrates on two axis. In other words, moonstones are inclusions upon inclusions on an X Axis, upon inclusions upon inclusions on a Y Axis. This is the magic. This is what creates this glowing, flashing, luminous, mysterious romance, and is the reason they respond differently in various lighting situations. Your moonstones are guaranteed to be included, as this is 100% what moonstones are about.


We lovingly insist that you please see our extensive Instagram photo and video archives for thousands of real life examples of our moonstones before purchasing this listing; https://instagram.com/theflyingfoxartanddesign/ Stock photos used in our listings are representative of one stone in various lighting situations. A moonstone from our lot will be carefully and intuitively chosen for you, with flash and colour intensity in mind. Please let us know if there is a preference at all for indigo blues, or greener blues, and we will do our best to find the one for you.

CARE

Moonstone/Labradorite is a delicate stone in comparison to sapphires or diamonds, and is roughly comparable to emeralds in terms of every day wear. Extra care must be taken to ensure that your stone remains intact over the years. No chopping wood, or roughhousing. If this is a deal breaker, ethical diamonds and sapphire may be for you. Flying Fox's diamonds and Sri Lankan sapphires are ethically sourced and vetted for environmental concerns.

Silver is a softer metal, that naturally bends to fit the shape of your finger. Again, if roughhousing, rough wear, chopping wood, working with hands is a daily concern, ethical gold is strongly recommended for strength and longevity.

*Flying Fox is no longer offering oxidation services, in order to assist our clientele in understanding the process for themselves.* The rate of wear and re-oxidation is highly variable, and as such is completely unique to each individual; therefore we cannot guarantee consistent results across the board. We find that there is no substitute for personal research and experience. For these reasons, we no longer offer in-house oxidation. In short, I am throwing my liver of sulphur into the sea! ; ) It's all you now, Babes. You got this.

For those wishing to try the oxidation process out on their own, we recommend oxidizing and touching up with a liver of sulphur gel applied directly to the metal with a q-tip and immersed in hot water to maintain the dark plating. A quick Google search for "how to oxidize silver jewelry video" should familiarize newcomers with the process, and if there are any doubts about upkeep, we strongly suggest trying the product and process out on a spare silver ring before investing wholeheartedly in a custom tailored piece.
