This is a round moonstone gemstone and it you can see the blue hues internally in the stone that gives this piece a certain mystique. It is round shape and set in simple yet elegant sterling silver bezel that is bordered by decorative circles. The ring measures at a size 9.5. Each piece I create is made from start to finish with a creative and artistic soul in mind.
Please understand that handcrafted jewelry is just that, handcrafted. It is not perfect, slight variations are what gives handcrafted jewelry its unique character.
