Genuine Power Through Gentleness. Sought after by King Solomon, Chrysocolla is an ancient and powerful stone, rich in pure copper minerals that visibly course through its veins. The name Chrysocolla was first used to describe the stone by Theophrastus, a Greek philosopher and botanist, in 315 B.C. The word is derived from the Greek words "chrysos", meaning gold, and kola, meaning glue, referencing the fact that chrysocolla was employed from the earliest times by goldsmiths as an ingredient for solder. A center aisle of Copper shines between the Chrysocolla bookend inlays.

Although all of the inlay materials we use are either stabilized or reconstituted with a resin for extra durability, bands with exposed edges (no titanium on the sides) require extra TLC and are not recommended for those with active or water-intensive lifestyles.
We are happy to add ultra-thin titanium edges to any ring for added protection. Adding titanium edges is an additional $100. If you would like to order these edges, please select “With Titanium Edge” below before completing the remaining Love in Your Ring Wizard steps.
Many people love the exposed edge style and are able to live with it for life. However, if you should get a band with exposed edges from us and then discover that your lifestyle is rougher on your hands than you realized, you need only to contact us to add a Lifetime Care Option for your ring. At that time, you may also choose to get the ultra-thin titanium edges added.
