ABOUT THE ITEM: -These beautiful handmade rings feature beautiful light pink heart shaped cubic zirconias. They're even more stunning in person. These rings were handmade using up-cycled pure copper for the setting and then electroformed to create a bezel for the crystals. Electroforming is an organic process that creates a coat of copper on items using an electric current. The process can last from anywhere between 24 to 48 hours. Because of it's organic nature, each piece created in this process is unique and has beautiful imperfections and textures. Along with the protection from the wax, you should not shower or submerge the jewelry in water. Because your jewelry is made of copper, it will age over time but can become shiny again with a nice polish. :) All of the pieces offered at The Mountain Druidess are made with intention and feature fully charged crystals. To recharge your jewelry use the sun's and moon's rays because they are very energizing, as well as energetically clearing. You can use this method to both clear and charge your crystals at the same time. Find a safe place and leave your crystal for 24 hours or more (up to a week) in sunlight and/or moonlight. BENEFITS OF WEARING COPPER: -Copper has anti-inflammatory effects in the body, and may therefore have painkilling properties. One study showed that copper from a bracelet can be absorbed into the body, and it does seem that this can offer some relief from arthritic pain.

While some users apply cubic zirconia to remove illusion and drain selfishness, others allege that the stone doesn't have any energy at all! Cubic zirconia is a diamond simulant and has been assigned to April and the zodiac signs Aries and Taurus. It has been used with the third eye, crown and solar plexus chakras.
