Twinned Scottish stones of Lewisian and Iona Marble polished and set in 925 sterling silver. Ring stones measure roughly (L)6x(W)4x(D)5mm. The clever wrap design of the band means that whilst the ring looks best set to a size R (UK) or 9 (US), it is slightly adjustable by hand either way. Total ring height is roughly 14mm.
Please note that we have more than one of these rings in stock, and the ring you receive, although extremely similar, may not be the exact ring in the photographs.
At Two Skies, we think that "To own a piece of Scottish stone is to own a piece of Scotland itself. By purchasing this beautiful piece you are connected not just to Scotland but to its age old traditions and folklore."
Lewisian & Iona Marble Twist Sterling Silver Ring
Lewisian comes from the Isles of Lewis, Harris and North Highlands. It is collected from the ancient bedrock of Scotland and is one of the oldest rocks in the world, up to 3 billion years old (3,000,000,000 years!). It is a unique composition of many minerals including Feldspar, Epidote and Quartz, all of which are part of the "Lewisian Gneiss" complex. Lewisian has been treasured for thousands of years by the clans of Scotland. It was used by the Megalithic cultures to construct monuments such as the Callanish stone circle on the Isle of Lewis
