It is the darkness that brings out our brightest of light. It is the paradox between two extremes that can be so disorienting on the one hand and simultaneously create hope and comfort to our souls. Light does not exist without darkness. Darkness can only be perceived as such when there is a contrast of light.
We added two new designs to our Of Shadows and Light collection – our From Darkness To Light Rings. One comes with a beautiful, bright Moonstone, the other with an iridescent, luminous Labradorite representing both sides, the darkness and the light, but also our ability to shift from one to the other acknowledging our human messiness, as well as our capacity to shift and move and adjust in-between these two spaces.
The new ring design
Let yourself be gently guided by the tender and beautiful energy of both rings that sit on your hand as a powerful touchstone and reminder that at any time you yield the power to walk yourself from darkness to light.
Engraved with these particular words – From Darkness to Light – this hammered band decorated with stars and the phases of the moon holds a potent Moon stone that is meant to gently light up your world and the one around you.
The design of the hammered band is inspired by our ever changing night sky – as an encouragement that while all is ever evolving and ever changing we have the ability and capacity to go with the same flow, deeply trusting, never gripping, allowing, allowing, allowing.
To wear both rings together maximizes the energies of these rings that are complementary to one another.
The meaning of Moonstone and Labradorite
Moonstone enchants us with its soft and magical feminine energy and pearly white light and incites a deeper understanding of who we are and where we are meant to go.
It captures all the magic of the Moon and gathers it in one shimmering piece invoking psychic protection. Moonstone is also referred to as the stone of new beginnings. Just like the Moon everything ebbs and flows and changes and this precious gem reminds us of how important it is to embrace the cyclical nature of the seasons.
Labradorite teaches us how to bring life-giving energy to all areas of our souls – from the body to the mind and those deep corners that are hardest to reach. It’s a stone that shows us the way to self-soothing, self-love, transformation and enhancing mental clarity.
Labradorite is known for its ‘labradoresence’, a dazzling optical phenomenon of blues, greens and deep blues that shimmer in the light, offering an iridescence of swirls. It reminds us of the magic of the universe – and the magic within us.
Labradorite is a stone that evokes courage and transformation and whispers deep healing. It holds stabilising and grounding properties that keep you connected to the earth beneath your feet while encouraging you to imagine a world high and wide.
