This lovely and dainty detail of a ring features a bright and joy-bringing Citrine crystal that has been electroformed using pure copper. Citrine has always been a favorite crystal of mine because of its properties of joy and abundance and I love incorporating it into my jewelry especially rings. This particular piece is dainty and perfect as an every-day-wear ring.
Ring Size: 8
Citrine is warming, energizing, and highly creative. It absorbs, transmutes, dissipates, and grounds negative energy and is therefore extremely protective for the environment in which it is in. This is one of the crystals that never needs cleansing. Citrine is one of the stones of abundance, teaching how to manifest and attract wealth and prosperity, success, and all good things. Citrine is a happy, generous stone and encourages sharing what you have and yet helps you to hold onto your wealth. It has the ability to cleanse the chakras, and is also great is smoothing group or family discord. It is an excellent stone for overcoming fears, depression, and phobias. Citrine promotes inner calm so that wisdom can emerge.
A wonderful cleanser of the chakras, copper helps to pull in energies from higher realms and cleanse the body promoting circulation. In legend it has been know to help with all types of healing, treatment of arthritis, relieving pain of broken bones, and low energy. Copper has been known for it’s healing properties and has been made and worn into jewelry by many civilizations over centuries spanning thousands of years. Those deficient in copper would benefit from wearing small amounts of it such as rings, bracelets or pendants as copper can be absorbed through the skin making it a great way to receive a necessary mineral for our bodies.
~Copper Crystals Jewelry~
Each of the pieces containing Copper are made during electroforming; an incredible process in which pure copper is sealed to crystals keeping all original quality of the stones intact. A single piece of jewelry can take anywhere from 2 days to a week or more to complete depending on the preparation (building the piece), size and intricacy, and at least 4-20 hours for actual electroforming time where the piece is sealed to copper. Once electroformed the copper is hand oxidized to a warm antique finish and then hand polished to allow some of the original shine to peek through. The last and final step of the process is to coat the copper with several layers of clear sealant to prevent oxidation and dullness. These are truly unique pieces that were made using lots of time, love, and care so that they are ready to share all the love and goodness that is overflowing within them onto whomever wears it!
~Copper Ring-Care and Information~
Over time copper absorbs oxygen along with oils from the skin causing a darkening of the copper. I personally prefer this look and love to let my copper run it’s natural course (the oils from your hands will also polish the copper up very nicely over time) but if you prefer to maintain the original shine, polishing copper jewelry is simple and easy with an acidic cleaner like lemons. Lemon and ketchup are both excellent for cleaning copper jewelry.
To protect the crystals cut a lemon in half or use a slice of lemon as opposed to soaking your jewelry in lemon juice. Pour a bit of salt on the exposed lemon and rub on the copper. Your jewelry should regain it’s shine and look good as new! You can also prevent tarnishing by wiping your jewelry off with a clean cloth after every wear.
Due to the natural chemistry of our bodies and the absorption of oils after being worn, copper can cause some discoloration or slight greenness of the skin. This is a completely natural reaction and is absolutely harm-free. I coat all of my jewelry in a sealant to prevent this as long as possible, but it is not a permanent solution. Green coloring on the skin comes off after a few hours on it’s own or can be washed off with soap and water. By taking off jewelry for showers, swimming, or washing hands will decrease the chances of wearing away the sealant, and will also prevent oxidation. You can also apply a bit of warm candle wax on the inside of the ring band where it comes in contact with the skin to prevent discoloration.
Do not submerge or let your jewelry come in contact with water as this can damage or change the overall look and quality of it.
