Natural lapis adds a lovely color pop to this classic stone signet ring. Hand-carved in wax and cast in solid metal for a substantial look and feel. The stone is hand-cut, inlaid and polished to a smooth finish in our studio.
Lapis lazuli has been prized for centuries. It was used as paint in the Middle Ages and as eye shadow in ancient Egypt. It has graced works of art from the Middle Ages to the Far East and has even instigated wars in pre-Columbian cultures.
Metaphysically, lapis has long been regarded as a stone of protection. It is thought to inspire courage and strength.
Please note:this ring is made of raw brass, which can leave a harmless mark on your skin, especially during humid conditions. This is not indicative of the metal quality, but rather a natural effect of the copper content in the brass reacting to the moisture and salt in your skin. This greening effect is easily removed by washing your skin with soap.
We still choose to work with brass for this design because it offers a gold tone option that is more affordable than gold and longer lasting than a gold-plated finish. Given proper care, brass jewelry will last a lifetime. Please visit our FAQ and Jewelry Carepages for more info on about brass care.

BRASS is an alloy of copper and zinc with a finish similar to 14k gold. It’s a beautiful, affordable material that develops a warm patina over time.
To help ensure the look and longevity of your brass jewelry, wipe your piece with a soft cloth after wear. Clean with a jewelry polishing cloth as needed.
Avoid contact with water, chemicals, and personal care products (lotion, make up, hair product, etc.). If your brass piece gets wet, dry it immediately to avoid water stains. Store in a clean, dry place (preferably a plastic baggie) when not in use.
LAPIS is a durable, but somewhat porous stone that is sensitive to pressure, heat, and chemicals. Avoid prolonged exposure to direct sunlight, which can cause color fading. To clean, simply wash with warm water and mild soap but make sure to dry it thoroughly. Store in a bag or cloth to prevent the lapis from being scratched by harder materials.
