This is a handmade, heavier weight, hammered copper ring with two symmetric domes on top. I use 8 gauge copper wire (30mm thick) so this ring is extremely durable, designed to last a lifetime. It has been treated to give it an antique patina.
Size 7: 17.3mm inner diameter.
Copper has been used medically and in rituals for thousands of years in many ancient cultures as a healing mineral. It is said to have the ability to conduct spiritual energy back and forth between individuals, crystals, auras, the mind and the spirit world. Copper can promote self-healing, optimism, happiness, and independence. And it conducts spiritual energy between individuals and allows for healing of the body by free-flowing emotions. Copper will also give you freedom from mental burdens and help support healing by keeping the pathways for healing open. Copper is connected to the Sacral Chakra (Manipura Chakra) that stands for personal power, confidence, respect for self and others.
These rings are handmade, hand sculpted and electroformed, so each ring is a little bit different. The colors and design may vary slightly from the photos.
IMPORTANT! Please know that copper is a metal that will develop a deep patina and will turn darker quickly with regular wear. I personally think this is the charm of copper, but it is super easy to restore the lighter color and shine back. All you need to do is polish it with a brass brush. CLICK HERE to purchase yours. You can also try soaking your ring in a warm water solution with 2 tbsp white vinegar and 1 tsp salt (important: no more than 1-2 minutes!).
A copper ring will also leave a greenish coloring on the skin (no worries, this goes away with just soap and water). I only work with 100% solid copper and this is simply a natural reaction of copper. You can paint the inside of the ring with clear nail polish if the coloration bugs you. Avoid swimming, sweating or sleeping with your copper ring. Also keep your copper ring away from lotions, oils and perfumes.
