Description

This beautiful blue cabochon is bezel set in sterling silver and on a floral band of about 2.5mm. It has an understated elegance that will take it anywhere and it has been made to endure years of constant daily wear. My photos make it look almost gold color, but the metal is all solid 925 sterling silver from ethical, earth friendly recovery. It is brilliant silver with a little darker shade in the relief. I do think th eblue shows up nicely in the photos. I usually am less content with the colors in my photos - but the blue is right in these. :) About 5.5x7 mm stone.

This ring is ready to mail in size 6.
Please contact me for inquiries about other sizes.

THE MINERAL KYANITE is one of the most attractive blue minerals in nature. It sometimes exhibits intense shades of blue, or even multiple shades with color zoning in a single crystal. The color of Kyanite, combined with its well-formed and sometimes large crystals, make this mineral appreciated by both novice and expert collectors alike. The luster of Kyanite from certain localities is sometimes enhanced by oiling specimens or applying them with synthetic lubricants. Legitimate dealers should disclose this practice if they are selling treated Kyanites.

Kyanite is strongly anisotropic, meaning it has a different hardness depending on the angle. In fact, it is the most well-known anisotropic mineral. The vertical hardness of Kyanite ranges from 4.5 to 5.5, and horizontal hardness from 6 to 7. Kyanite is named from the Greek term cyanos, which means deep blue, alluding to the typical color of this mineral.

Also called Cyanite (this Old spelling for Kyanite that was commonly used through much of the 19th and early 20th centuries.)
and Disthene

Kyanite does not retain negative energy and never needs energetic cleansing. It does align and balance all chakras, often very suddenly. Kyanite can remove energy blockages. Blue kyanite is associated with the throat chakra and is a boost to meditation. It is sometimes called Sappore, Blue Talc, or the "Tripping" stone.
Read in crystals and jewelry

SunnyRay says Kyanite stimulates intuition and higher psychic development. It helps the spiritual energy to manifest verbally and in our thoughts. It is known as a fairly grounding stone, especially suitable to ground your spiritual energies. Kyanite can promote healing dreams and connect you with your spiritual guides.


All metal is .925 sterling silver from reclaimed/recycled sources. It is eco friendly and guilt free. It is reclaimed in a small one man shop here in Texas. He is very eco conscious. His parents were from Germany. He was born in South Texas and his father was a silver and gold smith. The point is - he is good at what he does and he is devoted to keeping the earth as he found it.
The stones we use are all ethically mined/made and cut, Fair Trade and guilt free as well. :)

I can make a similar ring in yellow or white gold too.

Thank you for looking.

  • Accepts Etsy Gift Cards and Etsy Credits

Returns & exchanges

I gladly accept returns and exchanges
Contact me within: 3 days of delivery
Ship items back within: 7 days of delivery
I don't accept cancellations
But please contact me if you have any problems with your order.
The following items can't be returned or exchanged
Because of the nature of these items, unless they arrive damaged or defective, I can't accept returns for:
  • Custom or personalized orders
  • Intimate items (for health/hygiene reasons)
  • Items on sale
Returns and exchange details
I do love custom work. It is frequently more interesting and more fun that standard pieces. I enjoy working to help you realize something dreamed up and stored in your head! It is rewarding. I just don't want it back later. :)
(✰✰✰EXCEPTION - If I have sent the wrong item, or made it wrong, I will definitely accept return of that and will correct it or refund fully on that!✰✰✰)

Please do not return custom made items. Once we have designed a piece and made it to your specifications, and in your size, we will not want it back. Since we are not a big retail store, we can't just put it on a shelf and hope someone else will like it and buy it. (and those stores do not usually even make custom jewelry.)

We will always stand behind our work. If you want to return something (that is not custom made or made in your specific size) from our shop FOR ANY REASON... please do. Returns should be made immediately (as opposed to after you have worn it for a week or so). Just contact us to let us know and be sure we will refund or exchange before you send it. you will be responsible for shipping and possibly the fees we paid to sell it and there will be an additional 15% to 30% restock fee.

Please do not keep it for a while and then return it. It should be in new condition and returned within a week of it's receipt.

CANCELLATIONS: We have quite a lot of paper work and bookkeeping involved in a cancellation that looks so simple! Actually Etsy does not let me cancel a transaction unless the entire amount has been refunded. It costs us the listing fees to put the items back out there and it costs us the labor and some of the fees we pay to sell the items in the first place are not refunded to us upon cancellations. As a result of all of this, we have begun to charge 15% plus the relisting fees on immediate cancellations too.

REPAIRS:
If an item needs repair, we will probably do it at no charge for the first dozen years or so.

RESIZING RINGS:
I am usually happy to resize your ring UP to a LARGER size. Maybe 1/2 size or even a full size once in a while on certain rings. Please contact about your specific ring. Some can't really be successfully sized up, but almost all can be. That is almost always free of charge.
Often, it is difficult to impossible for me to size one Down to a smaller size.
I know lots of people order them as gifts with the intention of sending them back to be resized later. That is okay with me, actually! Just please do bear this Larger vs Smaller thing in mind when you order the size.
THANK YOU! =}D

There is seldom a charge for sizing one up 1/4 to 1/2 size the first time.
There will probably be a charge of at least $15 to cut one down. (this can vary significantly) Please do contact us because some cannot be cut down.

MAILING ANY PACKAGE TO US:
* Please be sure to put the item into a safe, sturdy box before packing,
* put the box into a bubble envelope or wrap well in bubble wrap
* include a note telling me who you are (both name and username) and why you have sent the item to us (even if you have emailed about it. It will help when another person receives the mail.) ***✰ the NOTE is NOT optional.✰***
* Please mail it as a package with full postage paid and I recommend TRACKING on the package. Tracking is just delivery confirmation on First Class US mail.
* Please DO NOT send COD or with postage due. (we would have to drive 40 miles to pick up a package with postage due. i just let them go back to sender now.)
If this is a return, Please mail it back within 3 to 5 working days of receipt of the piece.

✰✰✰ We are not responsible for items lost or damaged in the mail. ✰✰✰
Tracking and insurance are good ideas.

Shipping policies

SHIPPING UPGRADE:
Cool new feature of Etsy! You can click the SHIPPING tab in the listing and go down to select the method of shipping you would like, and add the item to your cart with that shipping. ✯✯NO! ✯✯ That is no longer true! As of 11 September, you will not be able to select an upgrade until you reach the checkout page. I am not sure exactly how it will look. If you have problems with this, please email to let me know and I will try to make an upgrade for you in a special listing of it's own.
More on this when I know more!

INSURE YOUR PACKAGE HERE:
We do encourage insurance!
If you would like to buy insurance on your package, here is a link. Purchase as many as you like. Each one is $100 of insurance on your package up to the amount of purchase.
https://www.etsy.com/listing/126252600/

ADDRESS:
Please, ★★★ PLEASE ★★★ check to be sure your mailing address is right in PayPal and in Etsy. If I forget to reconcile them, email you, and change them, you will not get your package and we will both be beside ourselves! - balked - cramped - crimped - defeated - discouraged - crabby -disheartened - embittered - fouled up - hung up - resentful - stonewalled - foiled -stymied - through the mill - discontented - ungratified - unsated - irked - unslaked - driven up the wall - inconsolable - miserable - cranky - ape - bananas - frustrated - disappointed - thwarted...
So let's not do that.
It is very important that we have a valid address on you. Please check the Etsy address for accuracy and if you pay via PayPal, Please, PLEASE make sure they match. *** I will ship to one of those addresses in default. Most likely will be Etsy address!
★★ If you do fail to correct the address before you purchase, I will ask that you purchase a CHANGE OF ADDRESS listing. It is in my shop section Upgrades and Misc. Here is a link:
https://www.etsy.com/listing/569803085/address-change-only?
It will cost about $1 because I can't make one that is acceptable to Etsy payments for less.


HOW YOU WANT IT SHIPPED:
We will probably send your purchase any way you like. If USPS First Class Mail Parcel/Package is not what you want, we are happy to ship Priority or Express, just let me know before purchase if you think of it. If not, I can make a separate listing to upgrade the shipping after purchase.


INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING: I am delighted to ship internationally!
Some things to note are:
1.) It may take an extra day or so for me to get to town to post the package.

2.) We do not know the tax or postal laws for your country. You may need to pay taxes on your purchase once it gets to you. You may have postal depot fees - especially in the UK now. Please check to see what those fees and taxes are before you order.

3.) We will not be responsible for any taxes or fees imposed upon your package by your country or your country's Customs office, Postal Depot, or Tax Department or any other that I don't even know enough about to get into this list.



LOST PACKAGE:
We are not responsible for uninsured packages lost in the mail unless we have not addressed it as you have shown it in Etsy.
I do usually put delivery confirmation on US packages (except letters) so we can tell where they are, but seldom insurance, unless you have purchased insurance.



SO YOU WILL KNOW:
We are in the country and our post office is a 20 mile trip from us. (40 round trip) We don't like to go everyday. International packages must be taken to the post office.
Our post office closes it's doors around midday on Friday and reopens on Monday. This means your package will not leave my town from Friday to Monday.

I truly do all I can to make this transparent to my customers and I hope it does not inconvenience any one of you!


WHEN WE WILL SHIP IT:
We try to ship within a couple of weeks from the time an item is purchased.
If it is an item that has to be made, (most of ours are), I will email to let you know how long we expect that to take. Most things are made, packed and mailed in 5 to 10 business days. Exceptions occur, especially when materials have to be ordered to make your item.

Occasionally, we have orders that keep us busy for a few days before we can start on your order. We do them as they come in and it could delay your order a bit. I would apologize for that, but the truth is that we wish we had more of the large orders that would keep us that busy. :)

RUSH ORDERS:
If you have a jewelry emergency - a deadline - and need us to work nights or weekends to get your order done more quickly, we can usually do that. Please contact me directly to add the Rush charges and the expedited shipping to your order BEFORE you make the purchase. OR - you can go to the UPGRADES section of the shop and purchase the "Rush My Order" there.
the Contact lets us agree on the charges and the timeline before we commit. :) {You must be willing to upgrade shipping for this too. (we don't make a profit on shipping, but if it is not important enough to expedite shipping, it must not be important enough for me to rush to finish it either.) }

:) Thank you for reading all of this!!! My hope is that you didn't have to read every section! :)

Additional policies

100% of every sale goes to support animal rescue and shelter.

Contact me any time!!! I love that!
I will try to answer convos once per day. (This is new.) We have found that more time was being spent in the office than with the torch. Our time is limited because so much of our day is devoted to the care of the animals. We do hope you will understand and that you will not be inconvenienced by this.

If there are options like color or size associated with your order or inquiry, just email me via Etsy convo and put those details in the Etsy Buyer's Notes when you check out.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
PHOTOS
I do not plan to go take pictures. Please know that for a little request (where you are thinking maybe 5 minutes) ...It would take me a couple of hours at least.

It is not a snap. If you REALLY have need of the pictures, I can do it, but I would like to know you really do need them before giving up this much time and energy to it. I could spend that time making jewelry or tending the animals (both of which are fun.)
Thank you!

Every original handmade Apache Moon piece comes with a studio card identifying the artist and materials. If there is a reasonable way of signing it, each piece is signed. Almost every purchase is gift wrapped. (If you need any special sort of gift wrapping, I will probably enjoy doing it for you without charge. Just let me know.)

We are all smoke free - even the cats, possum, horses and dogs! There is one little raccoon who is a little suspicious and we frequently think she may have been smoking something. :)

We do reserve the right to refuse service to certain buyers.
