A flashy Rainbow Labradorite stacking ring - made with an organically shaped oval rose cut Labradorite Cabochon. This dainty rainbow Labradorite ring has been dipped in sterling silver.
Each Labradorite has been selected for "flash", which means the beautiful blue "flashes" of color you see when looking at the gemstone from different angles. These Labradorites tend to look best at dusk, (or moonlight!), as pure midday sunlight can be a little overpowering. Each gemstone is guaranteed to have some blue flash, although the level of flash varies from gem to gem. These quality rings are made with a sterling silver filed shank, which has been plated with sterling silver for deeper coloration.
New design made with a sterling silver ring shank! This stacking ring is made from a genuine Labradorite.
Unlike similar rings on Etsy, these quality rings have a shank made with pure sterling silver, not copper. The ring is also plated with a very thick layer of sterling silver, much thicker than typical sterling silver plating. I often refer to this process as "sterling silver dipping". Copper is a less precious metal than sterling silver, known to turn your finger green and to tarnish very quickly under normal conditions. The pure sterling silver ring shank on this Labradorite ring will not cause discoloration on your skin.
This means your ring will not turn your skin green, and will be able to sustain heavy wear, scratches and nicks. The shank will also not tarnish any more than pure sterling silver would, but you may need to use a light microfiber polishing cloth every few years to keep the color bright and shiny. Please note, although rare, some people may be allergic to sterling silver, so if you have a reaction please let me know and I will happily accept a refund. Also please note that this type of ring is impossible to make without copper around the gemstone, so there is a copper build up around the gemstone and onto the shank. This is necessary for the security of the gemstone, and the small patch behind the gemstone will eventually darken if worn everyday.
