Lunar beauty: Magical moonstone engagement rings

Gemstone engagement rings have been trending in the wedding world for years. From emerald to ruby, there are so many unique stones to choose from.

Moonstone may be a lesser known gem, but that doesn’t make it any less special. This unique stone has a stunning iridescent finish perfect for a boho bride.

Moonstone is made up of two minerals: orthoclase and albite. Both of these minerals fall under the feldspar family, which makes up more than half of the Earth’s rocky crust. During formation, the minerals first intermingle then separate into alternating layers.

When light falls between the various layers of this stone, it creates a unique phenomenon called adularescence where the light appears to billow across the gem and make it appear as if it is glowing.

Moonstone has been revered by many cultures over the years. The ancient Romans believed it was formed by the moonbeams and thus associated the stone with lunar deities. Hindu mythology also suggests the stone is made of solidified moonbeams. In Indian culture, the stone is a sacred stone and is said to bring special dreams.

Adularescent moonstone was once named’ adularia’, named after Adular, a city in Switzerland where the first yield of high-quality moonstone was discovered.

The stone varies in colours from completely colourless to yellow to blue to pink, meaning any bride can find a shade she likes. Its value comes in its size. The thinner, the more valuable as more light is scattered off the stone, creating its characteristic mesmerising iridescence. Transparent blue moonstones are the rarest form.

As with diamonds, moonstone is also judged on the four C’s: cut, clarity, colour and carat.

Moonstone is said to bring good luck. Some even believe if you hold a moonstone in your mouth during a full moon, you’ll see the future.

The stone ranks a 6.0 to 6.5 on the Mohs scale of hardness, making it durable enough for everyday wear. It complements a range of cuts and metals, making it a jack of all trades in the gem world. However the ring is designed, your moonstone will shine bright.

We love working with Gold. This metal is very powerful and durable, but still remains flexible in production. ⠀ Since the dawn of civilisation, Gold has been regarded as a symbol of God, power and majesty. It is a rare noble metal resistant to corrosion and most other chemical reactions, which is why it is so valuable for fine jewellery. Wearing Gold brings many advantages to its wearer on an energetic level. Actually, Gold can improve your overall well-being, as it's positive energy provides body and mind relaxation. It balances mental health and treats depression.🌞 ⠀ ⠀Unfortunately, because of economic instability, investors buyout Gold, which leads to an incredible price surge. It's unknown,until which level Gold price can increase, but the experts say that it will reach maximum in all human's history. ⠀ ⠀You can still buy Gold jewelry pieces at the same prices, but for the future we are thinking seriously about introducing a recycle program. Care about our planet's resources and consumption reduction – are those things which are important now. But unfortunately to work with recycled metal place a range of restrictions – technically it's problematically to make detailed and complex forms, but we plan to develop several models available for production from recycled metal in conjunction with the design details made separately out of our metal. ⠀ ⠀➡️We would like to know your ideas about a recycle program for Gold jewelry. Would it be interesting for you to give a new life to your jewelry and recycle it?
