The ring you can take for a spin

The latest addition to the Rok Chix collection of chunky gemstone rings is our Silver and Gemstone Spinning Ring, which is available in a selection of gorgeous gems.

thmbspinringover.jpgIt’s based on an uncomplicated idea. A round gemstone sits between two open sides of a sterling silver band, held in place by a riveted silver rod. The gemstone turns around, hence the name. What I like best about this ring, however, is its simplicity. As anyone who’s familiar with Rok Chix jewellery knows, we don’t really do fussy designs. The gemstone is always the main focus of the piece, because, well, we love gemstones and we think they don’t need much adornment (they’re already spectacularly beautiful).

And before you ask, the Spinning Rings are really comfortable to wear – you don’t even realise you’re wearing one half of the time.

Now let’s get down to the gemstones available. There’s a lovely pink rose quartz, as well as a sparkly clear quartz and a chocolate-coloured smoky quartz, plus a charcoal grey labradorite with lovely flashes – all of these gemstones are faceted too, by the way. Plus, because I am mad about tourmalinated quartz, I’ve added one of these gems to the range too, and to finish off, a Rok Chix first – pyrite. Also known as fool’s gold, pyrite is a fascinating gemstone in that it looks like metal rather than a gem. I think, out of all of them, the pyrite is my particular favourite. Or perhaps the labradorite, or the tourmalinated quartz.. Oh I just can’t make up my mind.

Available for the bargain sum of £45, these are rings you’ll want to wear every day.

And before you ask, many apologies for the lack of blogging lately – I’ve been busy designing lots of new pieces for you, so look out for news of other new baubles and trinkets coming up very soon.
