Peruvian pink opal is unique and subtle crystal, with her many layers of pink, appearing in different tones depending on the light and pairs so well with copper.
The ring shown here with the standard band is a size 6.5, and the asymetrical crystal ring is a size 8.5. Both of the crystasl measure approximately 1.2cm x .6cm.
Peruvian pink opal is a heart healing gem, considered to be a gift from Pachamama, the earliest Inca Goddess of Fruitfulness and Mother Earth, and is wonderfully soothing for children and animals, and adults overwhelmed by life. It is particularly useful for healing old emotional wounds, from this life or another, bringing an inner peace to carry one through difficult times. Andean stones promote right action for the highest good and stimulate connection with others and communication from the heart.
Nurturing and comforting she’s a delight to wear.
I have set this ring through the process of electroforming. I begin by preparing the crystal and creating the ring band. Once I am happy with the setting, I paint a conductive paint onto the parts of the crystal I need the copper to plate onto. The next step is protecting the rest of the crystal with a temporary sealant. Once I have completed these steps, I’m finally ready to put the crystal into my electroforming solution, and use electricity to move copper from one place to another. This process can take anywhere from 24-48 hours, and requires constant monitoring to ensure the process is smooth, and does not happen too quickly, as this affects the quality of the plating. Once the piece is ready, I clean it, remove any sealant from the crystal and finally, sand and polish the copper to finish off your ring.
It’s quite a process from beginning with a raw crystal, to the finished result and one that I absolutely love. I hope that you treasure your new piece of jewellery for a long time to come. To find your ring size, click on this link: https://findmyringsize.com
