Sterling Silver Lapis Lazuli Ring.

Size N (Size 7)

Lapis lazuli, often referred to as just ‘lapis’, has been used as a gemstone for thousands of years. It has been mined from Afghanistan since the early 7th millennium BC, and it was discovered in ancient burial sites throughout the Caucasus, the Mehrgarh and even as far as the Republic of Mauritania. The funeral mask for the ancient Egyptian pharaoh ‘King Tut’ was even discovered to have been decorated with lapis lazuli.

This historical stone has a name closely associated with its intense color. Its name was derived from the Latin word ‘lapis’ meaning ‘stone’, and from the Arabic and Persian word ‘lazaward’. ‘Lazaward” was the Persian name for lapis stone, as well as the name of its mining location. In other parts of the world, words for ‘blue’ were named after the color of lapis, including the English word ‘azure’; Italian ‘azzurro’; Polish ‘azur’; Spanish ‘azur’ and Romanian ‘azuriu’. Today, lapis lazuli is still considered to be one of the most important opaque blue gemstones available.

Lapis usually forms in crystalline marble through the geological process of contact metamorphism and due to its composition, it is technically defined as a rock rather than a mineral. It is primarily composed of lazurite, while the remaining composition is made up of sodalite, calcite, pyrite and other various minor constituents. The varying composition is what influences its exact coloring.

Product Enquiry

My name is Deb and I am the owner of Debonair Creations, based here in Coventry.

I started off making jewellery in late 2010/ early 2011. My Dad sadly passed away in 2010 and I took it quite bad and it lead to me being diagnosed with anxiety and depression. I bought a Bracelet as a memory to my Dad and when I received it, it was tiny and didn’t fit. I then decided to remake it to my size and this is where my journey into jewellery making started.

In 2013 my Hobby then became a Business. I took the plunge and registered as self employed.

Unfortunately in 2014 I started suffering with Chronic Pain in my lower Back and I had to have various tests. After several tests, mri scans etc, I was diagnosed with Degenerative Disc Disease.

Although I suffer with daily pain, I could never give up jewellery making. It occupies my mind and it’s also something I love to do.

I have just started metal and silversmithing and I absolutely love it.

Thank you for reading and looking through my shop. If there is anything I can help you with, feel free to ask.
