This stone's two-part name comes from two different cultures: lapis is a Latin word meaning "stone," while lazuli comes from the Persian word lazhuward meaning "blue." In ancient times Lapis Lazuli was most highly regarded because of its beautiful color and the valuable ultramarine dye derived from it. It is rock formed by multiple minerals, mostly Lazurite, Sodalite, Calcite and Pyrite, and is a rich medium to royal blue with gold flecks (pyrites). In both Egypt and Persia, the stone was associated with the night sky, and was a highly prized jewel of Kings and Queens.

It is associated with wisdom and knowledge, and is said to aid writers, performers and leaders if they wear it while pursuing their dreams.

This vintage ring is crafted in 18 karat yellow gold, with a shank that has a Retro flair. A double barrel lapis lazuli stone is accented with glittering diamonds, set on one side. Sure to cause a stir when you wear it, and a beautiful touch to any ensemble, it's a ring suited to any sex!
