Elegant hand crafted stackable sterling silver ring set with a natural blue Sapphire, the birthstone for September. The sapphire measures 2.8mm to 3mm, weighs about .12 to .15 carats, and is completely natural. The ring band has a hammered, faceted design. The shank measures about 2mm wide and .7mm thick in the flat spots, and is stamped STER for Sterling on the inside. A significant portion of the sterling silver I use to make these is newly refined and alloyed recycled silver. The sapphires I use have a nice deep blue color and good transparency. There will be some minor internal inclusions.

I will make your ring when you order it in any finger size from size 1 up to a size 12, in full, half, or quarter sizes. Simply indicate the size you would like the ring made in checkout. I will have it ready to send within 3 or 5 days. The ring pictured is a size 7 ring. Please note that rings in larger finger sizes (10, 11, 12, etc.) will appear thinner and the stone appear smaller than they look in the pictures. The stone and band will be the same width pictured, but a larger finger size ring makes them appear smaller.

PROPER FINGER SIZING: There is no way to accurately guess or estimate the finger size you need for a ring to fit properly. The only way to obtain an accurate measurement is to use the METAL finger gauges used by jewelers. Go to a store that sells rings, and get the finger measured. They will be happy to do this for you. Finger size is totally unrelated to body size or shoe size. Using string or ribbon to measure the finger is not accurate. Printing a paper off the internet and wrapping it around your finger may work if you plan to wear a piece of paper on your finger; but if you plan to wear a silver or gold ring, it won't work. Again, the only reliably accurate way is to use metal finger gauges graduated in 1/2 sizes, until you find the one that fits best. Also keep in mind that fingers are smaller when it is very cold, and larger when it is hot and humid. Receiving a new ring that is too large or small is quite disappointing. You will be far happier if you take the time to obtain an accurate size before ordering.

I can make this ring with virtually any other gemstone. The last picture shows 8 of these rings with different stones stacked together; all of which are or have been listed in my shop. Search my shop in the "Stacking Rings" category to see if I have just what you want, or contact me to tell me what you would like, and I can give you a price. I can also make these rings in 14k gold at a higher price. I have one smaller size 14k gold one with amethyst listed in my shop here:

Gemologically Speaking; This is the educational part:

Did you know that ruby and sapphire are actually the same stone? Most people think of blue when they think of sapphire, but it actually comes in all colors. Sapphire is the mineral corundum, or aluminum oxide. It occurs naturally in blue, yellow, green, orange, purple, clear, pink, red, and in every shade, combination, and intensity of these colors you can imagine.. Medium to dark red to red-purple corundum is called ruby. Pink-orange to orange-red corundum is called Padparadscha Sapphire. But it's all the same rock; corundum.

Corundum is crystalline aluminum oxide (Al2O3). The various stone colors come from very small quantities of some other metal in the crystal lattice. In the case of ruby, chromium is the metal that makes it red. Titanium by itself makes sapphire clear, and Iron by itself makes sapphire yellow. Iron and Titanium together make sapphire blue. All the other colors come from mixtures of 2 or 3 of these metals in the crystal lattice. Corundum is actually fairly common in low silica igneous and metamorphic rock, but as gray or brown grains, not in translucent gem quality crystals. It takes very special conditions to form transparent gem corundum or star corundum crystals. Corundum is usually formed in metamorphic rocks such as marble, schist, and gneiss. It is very hard, having a hardness of 9.0 on the Mohs scale. Common corundum is used as an abrasive, such as in sandpaper. Being hard and heavy, with a specific gravity of 3.95 to 4.1, as large amounts of corundum bearing rocks are eroded and weathered away over time, corundum crystals become concentrated in placer deposits in drainages below the corundum containing rock strata; just like gold nuggets in gold placer deposits. Since gem crystals are few and far between in the rock, it is usually not possible to mine the rock in the mountains to find the crystals, and make a profit. But the corundum crystals become concentrated together by gravity in the placer deposits formed below. Thus almost all ruby and sapphire mines in the world are placer mines where miners "pan" through the dirt and sand in stream basins to find the rubies and sapphires. And for millennia it has been common practice for miners to heat the corundum they mine to improve the color of their stones. Truly unheated natural sapphire or ruby is very rare. These stones are heat treated.

Metaphysically Speaking:

It's powers are psychism, love, meditation, peace, and healing. Historically sapphire has been associated with alignment with and realization of an individual's destiny. It has been said to promote mental clarity, clear perception, and wisdom because it has the ability to draw out knowledge and wisdom buried deep within the sub-conscious mind. It can assist the wearer in finding and accomplishing their purpose here in life. It is a powerful stone to be used in meditation to increase the flow of wisdom. It has had a position of importance in all historical religions throughout the world, due to this connection with divine wisdom. It is also a stone to facilitate and help all human relationships; love relationships, business, friends, extended family, and everyone else you connect with in your life. As the guardian of love, it attunes the feelings of lovers for each other, and promotes fidelity. It works the same for you in business dealings or any other dealings with people. It just makes the relationship flow and work. Physically it is said to strengthen the eyes, halt fever, and stop nose bleeds. It can aid communication, ameliorate depression, and increase mental clarity, intuition, clairvoyance, and calm.
