The name hematite is derived from the Greek word for blood αἷμα (haima), due to the red coloration found in some varieties of hematite. The color of hematite is often used as a pigment. The English name of the stone is derived from Middle French hématite pierre, which was taken from Latin lapis haematites c. the 15th century, which originated from Ancient Greek αἱματίτης λίθος (haimatitēs lithos, "blood-red stone").
The spectral signature of hematite was seen on the planet Mars by the infrared spectrometer on the NASA Mars Global Surveyor which sparked enough interest that a second of the two Mars Exploration Rovers was sent to a site in the Terra Meridiani region to investigate and learn more about this spectacular deposit. Further, Hematite carries a spectacular magnetic field in its properties. In ancient times, Hematite was used as jewelry in mourning and believed through Root Chakra to enhance mental and physical well-being. It's also believed as a result of its magnetic properties to Increase focus, concentration, and motivation. Hematite is a powerful gemstone that has been used for centuries to relieve pain and inflammation and boost the immune system function to help keep the body healthy and free from infection. It's often used to help with arthritis, anxiety, and pain relief.

֍ Hematite is Fragile. It's a crystal material and like crystal, it can break. While it has a high-density MOHS rating of around 5.5 which makes scratch resistant, it is a crystal so great care is required as it can break if dropped or hit against another hard object. Your ring is guaranteed to arrive in excellent condition and if it doesn't, just return it for a refund or free exchange however if you break your ring, it is not covered by its guarantee/warranty. If you want a similar ring like this that is made from a much harder material like Titanium (not Hematite which is typically purchased for its Root Chakra healing properties) please message me and I'll direct you to a better option.
֍ Incredible-looking fashion band for both men and women.
֍ Comes in a Matching Crystal Cut Ring Case with Black Velvet.

I LOVE MAKING CUSTOMIZED RINGS! Yes, we "specialize" in making nearly any kind of ring according to our customer's specifications. Simply message me here and I'll provide a quote based on the requirements of your custom-designed ring(s).
While there are some very tough rings that can put up with a lot of abuse like Titanium or Tungsten, all jewelry regardless of price requires some common sense TLC and in most cases it should be a habit to remove your ring prior to taking a shower, washing your hands, using hand sanitizer or lotion, swimming or while working that requires heavy hand to machinery contact or anything that would simply be abrasive. If you have any concerns, simply ask about your specific ring and ask about our hyposealer which is an additional protective coating that can be applied to help protect and prevent oxydation.
Because I actually hand make these rings myself, I can often offer them in all sizes including extremely small to very large ie. US Sizes 1-25 and as fine-tuned as much as a quarter of a size on most rings. If you don't see the size you require, please message me. I often can still do it for you!
Yes, all rings $40 or more automatically are shipped in a beautiful ring box FREE OF CHARGE!
If you need a ring box for something less expensive, just let me know and I'll still do it for free 😍
If you are looking to buy rings, services or our precious metal plating in bulk, contact me before making your purchase, and let's discuss what you have. In many cases, I do offer discounted pricing to customers with bulk item requests.
Yes, anyone with an honorable discharge DD214 or active duty card as well as any first responders (firefighters, officers, medical field) that can provide proof (ie. an ID with the same name as the person purchasing the item) will receive 15% OFF the regular price. If an item is already on sale, I don't consolidate discounts and coupons so we would just look for the discount that gives you the largest savings and I thank you for your service!
The prices in the ad are based on plating a basic ring however I do plate many different items (not just jewelry). The very first thing is to contact me direct and provide a photo(s) preferably next to a dollar bill for size comparison. I don't charge my customers until "AFTER" the job is completed so PAY NOTHING UPFRONT! Simply contact me for my address, instructions and a quote.
Yes, all the time! In fact, other than all kinds of costume jewelry, antiques, and more I'm contracted by many companies for all kinds of crazy things like drone parts, car parts, emblems, medallions, electronic parts, and so much more! Our Gold plating services extend far beyond just rings, bracelets, necklaces, watches, and pendants. Further, I plate in Vermeil or Gold Filled as well making our plating up to 8x times thicker than standard gold plating. Message me here and let's just chat a bit about what you have and get you a custom quote today. I typically answer in just a matter of a couple of hours in most cases.
