This lovely ring features a 14 mm round red-orange carnelian cabochon. The stone is flanked by a beaded accent ring and set in a handmade fine silver bezel. The band measures 4 mm in width. It is a traditional split shank, made from 14 gauge sterling silver wire, which is soldered and then smoothed for comfortable, easy wear.
Carnelian is known for its distinctively fiery red color. From the chalcedony family, it is harder than most steel, which makes it a wonderful stone to wear daily, since does not scratch easily. In ancient India, it was once considered the property of the ruling class...and it has been ascribed all sorts of properties throughout the years, from the ability to calm the temper to the ability to help timid people be more assertive!
The ring shown a size 9, but I will happily make it in any size you would like, including quarter and half sizes.
