This Chief Ring in lapis was made by Skydog Jewelry, exclusively for SOP. I first saw this ring in Jordan's LA studio last fall, took it home with me on the spot, and made plans to have a few commissioned just for the shop.
Lapis is classified as a rock rather than mineral and is known for its blue coloration. Lapis does contain minerals and is highly valued for the presence of Pyrite, which also adds interest to its color. It has been mined for over 6,000 years and been thought to strengthen awareness, creativity, improve sleep, and even act as an aphrodisiac.
