Darling Blue Ring
Size 6.5 (fits true to size)
Reclaimed 18k gold
American mined Kingman Turquoise
A very blue stone with a very mountainy band. So darling for an everyday ring.
A little inspiration I found for this ring in the book The Lost Spells
"Soft this evening I lay listening to my child breathing slow and shallow in the darkness of her sleep,
When without warning I fell deep into the gap that opened up between her breaths.
All the world was halted in the cold, steep - sided space; the stars un-shining, sun un-dawning, trees un-growing, birds transfixed mid-air, mid-song.
Light failed, heart lurched, colour fled, grief beckoned; Life dear life, suspended in that second for an age -
Only saved when you flew low into the shadow, Swallow, streamers flowing, closing up that chasm with your swooping, sewing flight!
With a stroke the stars renewed their burning in the black, the sun its turning, trees their leafing, birds their singing, she breathed in again and life poured back." - Robert Macfarlane
