Third Eye ring with inlaid porcelain combined with Goldstone. 18K Gold Heavy-Plated Sterling Silver. Handmade in Brooklyn, NY.
About the stone:
Goldstone is a man made gemstone consisting of cobalt flecks suspended in glass. This combination amounts to an effect called "aventurescence" similar to metallic glitter.
The original manufacturing process for goldstone was invented in Venice in seventeenth-century by the Miotti family. Urban legend says goldstone was an accidental discovery by alchemist monks trying to make gold (which is why the stone is sometimes referred to as “monkstone”), but there is no pre-Miotti documentation to confirm this.
How long your pieces last depends on how often you wear it, as well as the PH of your skin, exposure to chemicals, and frequent rubbing against other surfaces. Here are some ways to extend the life of your jewellery:
Wash your hands before putting on or taking off.
Put on jewellery after you’ve applied lotion, perfume or makeup.
Take off your rings or bracelets before chopping tomatoes or doing dishes.
Avoid rubbing bracelets and necklaces against each other. Try to prevent rings from banging into counter tops and rubbing against other metal parts (such as keys) buried in pockets and purses.
Don’t swim in your jewellery or wear it when you’ll be sweating profusely.
Clean your jewellery gently with a soft cloth and store it in a pouch separate from other jewellery so as to keep it free from oxidizing elements.
