Althea Emerald Ring Gold
The Althea Emerald Ring is an 18k gold vermeil evolution of the quintessential snake ring. A polished golden stacking ring in the form of an ouroboros, the Althea Ring can also be worn alone for greater subtlety.
Althea is a name that implies healing power, a theme continued by the serpent design. Snakes are archetypal symbols of healing and transformation as represented by the act of shedding their skin. The emerald eyes of the serpent focus this rejuvenating energy on the heart, so we may shed outdated belief systems that no longer serve us.
The Althea Emerald Ring is a transformative catalyst for emotional healing, empowering us to reveal our truest selves.
Emerald’s verdant tones are considered to be the concentrated essence of nature and as such symbolise freshness, growth, renewal and vitality. Emeralds open the heart chakra, and their rejuvenating energy facilitates emotional healing. This precious gemstone was favoured by Cleopatra and was considered sacred to the goddess Venus.
Temple of the Sun rings are some of our favourite pieces, and being on our hands exposes them to the most wear and tear. To ensure the gold lustre remains golden and bright it is important to remove your rings each time we hand sanitise, apply makeup, cosmetics, shower, swim and even cook. Gold vermeil, like all non-solid gold, is designed to fade over time so our beloved rings need the most attention and care out of all.
SIZE: 6, 7 and 8 USA
