Custom Ring Sizing:
Let’s make sure I create the right size ring for you. I work with US ring sizes and I am very careful to size your custom rings to the size you order. Please double-check the size you need before placing your order. You can do this by measuring the inside diameter (from one side to the other) of another ring you like the fit of. Please make sure the measurement is precise down to fractions of millimetres. If you are ordering a wide band please measure a wide band for fit, not a narrow band. Please send me this measurement along with the ring size you desire upon checkout. Alternatively, ask me for a ring sizing tool. Resizing can be as much work as creating a new ring, therefore resizing fees start at $50 for bands and $100 for rings with stones, plus return shipping.
Personalization - Blessing your Ring - A Spiral River Exclusive:
In addition to being a jewelry artist, I am also an ordained minister. Therefore I am happy to bring blessings to your ring. If you would like this, please let me know what intentions you would like me to bring to your ring as I form it. I will repeat it like a mantra in my mind and in doing so the creation of the ring will be joined with your consciousness and wishes.
Jade, the precious gemstone known as the 'stone of heaven' has been cherished for millennia and is believed to possess mystical powers, immortality, and invincibility. Jade helps one cherish one's desires and to build one's dreams in this physical reality, inspiring one to accomplishment. Jade is an ancient symbol of love and virtue. It is also called the Mayan ‘dream stone.’ It is used to promote harmony within and without, assisting in achieving meditative states. It is also thought to promote a long life. Jade, of all kinds, is thought to be a very protective stone for the kidneys, liver, spleen, heart and other organs. Shamans have used jade as protection from illness and for psychic protection. It has been used for eons to assist in ridding oneself of negative thoughts and energy. It has energetic clearing properties and is useful to keep with other stones for this reason. Some cultures even considered jade more precious than gold. Jade may be given as a gem on the 12th, 30th and 35th wedding anniversaries. It is also the mystical birthstone for the month of March.
Gold’s beauty symbolizes wealth and prosperity. It is also said to facilitate communication between humans and a spiritual world. Gold has been associated with the numinous including the sun, divinity and eternal life throughout history.
