Everything You Need To Know About Signet Rings 101

We all know here at LS, we love a good signet ring, but we wanted to dive further into a little bit of background in why these golden gems are more than just a statement piece. What really makes signets have that antique, sophisticated, chic vintage feel? Whether you dress them up in diamonds, or wear a solid gold piece, there's no denying when wearing one you feel like the boss goddess you are. 




Signet rings date back to ancient Mesopotamia and ancient Egypt.  They were typically made entirely of gold or featured carved gemstones and were used as seals.  Similar to how a signature is used today, Signet rings were used to leave your mark and create a seal of authenticity.  Each signet was made for the person wearing it, providing a sense of ownership once a letter was sealed.


Wax was heated and poured onto the document or letter and the signet ring was placed firmly from top to bottom to create the imprint.  This left a permanent mark of approval.  

During the late 19th Century, these rings became known more as a status symbol and less of a legal mark.  They would often have gemstones and initials marked into the gold.  This interpretation has stayed within modern times and today, many engrave signet rings with personal initials, initials of loved ones or even birthstones.  By doing so, it gives a very personalized touch, creating heirlooms and memories that will stay within your family for generations to come.  


They have long been adorned by the fingers of Egyptian queens and now by you.  We love to wear our signet rings on our pinky finger, allowing the ring to shine as a statement piece on it’s own.  If the pinky finger is not really your thing, you can also wear a signet on really ANY finger. Stacking simple layered rings on the index and middle finger can gracefully highlight your signet ring, allowing for the signet to be on display.  It’s a very versatile piece that can be worn alone or with others. Definitely one of those pieces that can be filed under your “Never Take Off ” set.  


Rose Cut Diamonds?!
Hi loves!
So as you have probably noticed, we use a lot of rose cut diamonds throughout our collection. Many of you have asked us what the difference is between rose cut and brilliant (or any other standard cut) diamond. You know you like the way it looks, but don't necessary know what it means... so we've done a breakdown for you, on a brief history on where rose cut diamonds came from, and what that exactly means. 
Rose cut diamonds date all the way about to the early 1500’s. The stones are cut in a way where they resemble the spiraling petals of a rose. They are cut flat on the bottom, creating a larger surface area for the stones to sparkle. This is why you really see such brilliance from a rose cut diamond.
They were traditionally used in engagement rings because of the unique symbolism. The rose cut ring was worn on the third finger of the left hand because of the vein that ran through the ring finger (the vena amoris), and was thought to run directly to the heart.
Rose cut diamonds became especially popular during the 17th century, as the Baroque Era came about and demanded a more sparkly design; something that shined brilliantly through the candlelit dinners.

LS GIVEAWAY 1.11.16!!

Hi loves!

In honor of the upcoming New Year ahead of us, and all the love that we have for you and your support, we decided to do our first LS GIVEAWAY!!!

We want to challenge each of you to take a moment out of your busy and demanding schedules to pause and reflect. Post a photo of your FAVORITE LS piece/picture to your Instagram with these three things in the caption:

  1. Something that you did for someone else that did NOT benefit you in anyway (other than your good karma points!)
  2. Something you are grateful for (can be as simple as blue sunny skies, your best friend, that delicious cookie you had today…etc)
  3. One personal accomplishment you had today (this also can also be as small as getting to work or your appointment on time, finally cleaning out your closet, landing a business deal, drinking enough water for the day….etc.)
** Tag #LSGIVEAWAY2016” in caption - this will be the only way for us to find you + make sure your profile isn't private! **
** Bonus points if you like Luna Skye on Pinterest + Facebook too!  

These three things seem small but really are what add to our inner being and light. Like a rosebud shares its’ beauty and fragrance with the world, we too share our beauty when we are feeling most prosperous within ourselves...and what better way to start off a fresh New Year?!
These are the things that we do inside ourselves that radiate outwards. We are so often told that external actions will make us happy, but that is so often not that case (and yes we know buying those new shoes DID feel really good).
I promise you these simple and small daily thoughts and actions make a huge difference in how you feel about yourself and in return about others.  It aids your personal health and happiness to be conscious of your accomplishments both big and small on a daily basis.  
Once you all have submitted your favorite LS piece and personal reflections, we will pick a winner at the end of the week, on Friday 1.15.16,  who will win a one-of-a-kind custom moonstone and diamond necklace.
We hope this brings a smile to your face and to a lucky winner some diamonds and moonstones too :)
Good luck to each of you!!
We LOVE you all!!
Sam + the LS team
The jewelry we create consists of gemstones and crystals from all over the world and with various types of properties connected to them. Our bodies are naturally receptive to the vibrations of crystals as they transmit, reflect, store light and receive energy.  On a cellular level, both quartz crystal and our bodies are made up of mineral silicon-dioxide.  When crystals are placed on your body, they have a powerful vibratory effect that flows from the crystal to you.

Below is a guide to understanding the gemstones & crystals we choose to work with and what they mean to you and yours.   

Zodiac Birthstones are aligned with your zodiac sign, several signs have more than one gemstone linked to them, each sign is unique and different.  Your birthstone is not only beautiful, but also has healing attributes.  Wearing your stone can bring you peace and balance.  It offers protection and positive energy and will draw good fortune and healing your way.

We consciously use gems and crystals in our work, hoping they bring light, love and happiness your way. Here is a list of the stones we currently work with and their healing properties.  

* Diamond: Diamond is a powerful love stone. It bonds relationships and enhances love. It generates longevity and honesty of relationships,  and engenders trust between two partners. It increases harmony, not only in romantic relationships, but in all areas. This stone enhances mental clarity and increases concentration. It is used to decrease pride, and increase imagination. Diamond energy is used to amplify thoughts and bring purity of thought. It also increases memory for details.

* Sapphire: Sapphire is used to bring joy, peace, and beauty through meditation into this plane. It can bring fulfillment of dreams and prosperity. It is beneficial for mental clarity. It lessens confusion and shows the way to hope. It can bring this hope into life where there was hopelessness. This relieves depression and can ease anxieties, as often we tend to make more of the negative of a situation and forget the positive. Seeing a situation clearly brings relief from these negative, muddy thought patterns. Sapphire also can improve communication by bringing this clarity.

*Moonstone: Moonstone is said in crystal healing to help calm responses and stress, and avoid overreaction. It brings hope, enhances  feminine energies, sensitivity, intuition, and psychic abilities. It is also said to bring strong energies of abundance to one's life.  Moonstone is a stone of protection, especially during childbirth, pregnancy, and travel at sea. It is a stone of calm and relief from emotional stress. It is also associated with love of all kinds.

*Emerald: Emerald is a classic stone of love and romance, and is reputed to bring both passion and domestic bliss with unconditional love. It is also said to be a stone that brings balance within relationships, as well as friendship. In the event of heartbreak, emerald is used to heal the heartbreak and put one back on the path to love.

*Tourmaline: Tourmaline is a stone that can increase flexibility, happiness, hope, objectivity, compassion and serenity. It also enhances tolerance and understanding. Tourmaline is often associated with the heart chakra, particularly watermelon tourmaline, where it opens one to accept love.  

*Opal: Opal is a stone of inspiration which enhances imagination and creativity. It can bring inspiration to projects, life and Spirit. Its own spirit is at times like that of a child spontaneously playing, dashing color wherever it pleases. Carrying this imaginative spontaneity into the realm of you life can bring strong creativity. Opal is also known as a water stone; like water flows over bumps and rocks in it's path wearing opal is said to help you flow with the natural rhythm and "rocks" in life's path.

*Aquamarine: Aquamarine is metaphysically known as a stone of courage and fortitude that can bring great power. It is said to assist with quick intellectual response. It brings inner peace, hope and self-love, gives shielding for the aura, and is said to bring angels for their guidance and protection. As such, it is an excellent crystal for meditation. Aquamarine is used metaphysically to dispel anger and fear.

*Citrine: Since citrine brings self-confidence as well as positive energy, it can also help eliminate fears of being judged or of others' ideas. It is also used to dissipate fear of being alone or unworthy of love. Citrine is a happy stone. It can bring happiness to the person who carries or wears it. It exudes good fortune and good luck.

A D.I.Y Holiday
Candle making is a lovely way to create customized, handmade gifts for your friends and loved ones for the holiday season!  We have a bit of a candle obsession over here, so when we discovered this fun and easy project I immediately wanted to share it with all of you.  
Using soy wax is best, because it burns cleanly and slowly.  You can purchase soy wax at your local craft store or online, whichever you prefer.  The real customization comes when you pick and choose your fragrance.  I love lavender, rose and mint just to name a few.

What You’ll Need:

  • Mason Jar (squat half-pint )
  • Soy Wax (2 cups of shaved soy wax for one mason jar candle)
  • Soy Wicks
  • Hot Glue + Glue Gun
  • Double Boiler/Microwave Safe Container
  • Thermometer
  • Fragrance (I like to add the flower or leaf of the fragrance I’m working with into the wax)

Step 1: Melt wax using a double boiler until the temperature reaches 160-180 degrees Fahrenheit.

Step 2. Glue the wick to the bottom of the mason jar, using hot glue, glue dots or tacky wax.  This will hold the wick in place.

Step 3. Remove wax from heat and allow wax to cool to 125 degrees.  Once the wax has cooled, add scent. I used a couple drops of lavender essential oil.  Then, stir lavender pieces into the wax to add texture and a touch of color.

Step 4. Once you’ve mixed your wax and fragrance, pour wax into your mason jar of choice. In order to help prevent your wick from shifting while the wax cools, you will need to position the wick in the center of the jar. Place popsicle sticks on both sides of the wick to keep the wick in place.

Step 5. Allow wax to harden overnight then trim wick to a 1/4 inch.

Voila! You’ve created your very own eco-friendly lavender soy candle.  I like to attach a handwritten note card and match box via twine wrapped around the rim of the jar.  It adds a personal touch!

Happy gifting :)

More IS More

Ever see those girls who seem to wear their layers or stacked rings so effortlessly? And wonder how it all just comes together so perfectly? I wholeheartedly believe jewelry truly illuminates your personal style. Anyone can pick up an outfit or certain top, but it really individualizes your unique style to accessorize and load up on your jewelry.


Here are some quick tips of the trade to make the most out of your jewels! 


#1 Length Matters: If you’re looking to sparkle up a casual outfit you can do so by layering different length necklaces. We’ve made it easy for you by making each of our necklaces with an adjustable chain length (either 16”-18” or 14”-16”).  Let one necklace grace your collarbone, another about an inch further and let the longest necklace fall just below.  Feel free to combine different colors and styles as well. It shows creativity!


#2 Mix & Match Gemstones: You can easily add edge to any look, by mixing gemstones together.  Wear a simple diamond necklace (or topaz or sapphire! Anything with a muted or white color will work) and layer with another gemstone; emerald, ruby, onyx, moonstone, labradorite…etc.  Don’t be afraid to mix things up! In this case, more IS more.

  #3 Dainty Layers: Mixing multiple delicate necklaces around your neck is fun and flirty.  Let them intertwine and sit just below your collarbone.  Place each pendant about an inch from one another so each one gets to shine. Layering our drips is also an easy go-to, and always guaranteed for endless compliments.

 #1 The “Power Stack”: Layering multiple rings on one finger (we like the index finger) is a powerful and easy move.  Layer a gemstone ring, with a few simple diamond bezel rings and a solid band just to name a few!  Make sure to keep the layering just below the knuckle.  After all, functionality is always key. You can also never go wrong (with our personal favorite) layering signet and thick gold band rings... Stack ‘em up!

 #2 Mix Metals:  How do you choose between color golds?  You don’t...you choose all! Mixing metals is an effortlessly cool way to show off all your jewels.  We love to mix gold with rose gold for a shimmery sun-kissed looked. 

#3 Keep it Thin:  Spread the love to four of your fingers and place a thin ring around each digit.  Keep the type of metal consistent.  Whether you choose yellow, white or rose gold you are sure to show your edgy side with this multi-ring look.
