Black is the perfect color
Black jewelry makes the greatest subtle statement. It is neutral enough to be worn with almost any outfit, and yet the synthetic onyx is still a shining beauty that manages to catch the eyes of everyone around you. The black is a great option for someone who doesn't want something too plain, and is also a great masculine addition to any hand. It is a bold ring, but the sleek nature and shade of the large stone on top mean that it will never be in your face - it is the perfect representation of a quiet power.
Synthetic stones are better than the real deal
Synthetic gems, such as the synthetic onyx of this ring, are becoming more and more popular. The black cubic onyx, also known as synthetic onyx, has a number of great properties that its’ natural counterpart doesn’t.
Firstly, synthetic gems are better for the environment. There is a finite supply of high-quality, real gems in this world. While some may be rarer than others, it can be difficult to find an onyx stone as perfect as the ones in these rings. It also means that there is no mining required to find such a beautiful stone. Mining can be dangerous, sometimes unethical, and ultimately bad for the environment. Making synthetic gems in a controlled environment saves a lot of these negative processes from occurring.
Secondly, because it is manufactured, scientists can make sure that it is perfect. There are no uneven colors or cracks in synthetic onyx, because only the very best final products get used. You know that when you purchase this ring, the stone will have no imperfections.
Black onyx is the gemstone that is associated with the planet Saturn, and with Leo, the zodiac sign. This ring would be a perfect gift for someone born between July 23 and August 23, the time of Leo. Onyx is known to be a very grounding stone, and will help the receiver to feel closer to Earth. It is also seen as a symbol of strength, both physically and mentally. This strong mens ring is the perfect connection to the wearers’ star sign - not tacky, yet still lets the wearer know who they are.
Historically, Onyx was a gift of death
In ancient Egyptian culture, onyx was believed to be a marker of death, probably due to its deep black color. Egyptians used to curse the stone, for fear that it would cause harm to them or a family member. Luckily, this semi-precious stone is no longer seen as the bearer of death, and even luckier, this ring is only made out of synthetic material. Even if the recipient of this beautiful ring did believe in such superstition, they can rest assured that synthetic onyx will not cause them any harm. Regardless, this mens ring is a thoughtful gift for someone who has a keen interest in ancient civilizations, and who loves to wear jewelry with meaning.
Onyx is believed to be a crystal with amazing healing powers, both physically and mentally. If you or someone you know is suffering, the onyx can be a great support to get better. It is for this reason that onyx is also seen as a great gift for someone who has been ill for a long time. It is believed that onyx will provide them with that support to help them get through the final stages of sickness and on the road to recovery. It is believed to release energy back into the wearer, and to help lift their spirit.
Onyx is also believed to ward off any evil spirits that might be lurking. It is believed that the stone can absorb any negative energy that is lurking around, and transform it into something more positive. If you or someone close to you has been suffering from bad luck recently, you might want to help them out by giving them some stunning natural protection. Even if you don’t necessarily believe in the healing power of crystals, it is always better to be safe than sorry.
Known as a male stone
Probably due to its’ black color, onyx is one of the few valuable stones and crystals that are worn mainly by men, and not women. It radiates strength and power, the perfect message sitting on any man's hand. That’s not to say this would not look equally powerful on the hand of a woman - it would look amazing, and allow her to also radiate power and internal strength.
The symbolism of the wreaths
Although the large synthetic onyx is definitely the shining star of this piece of jewelry, the ornate wreaths etched onto the sides of the ring should not be forgotten. They are beautifully detailed from sterling silver, giving the ring another powerful dimension. They also have a wide variety of significance across time and culture.
In ancient Greek-Roman times, to wear a wreath was to symbolize your job, and your status within society. Only people of power were able to wear ornate wreaths such as the ones depicted on the sides of this ring. The laurel wreath, as shown on this ring, was worn to signify victory and achievements. This is a great gift for someone who may have recently achieved something monumental in their life, as a way to say that you recognize that their hard work has finally paid off. Or it might be a great gift to show someone that victory will be theirs if they just stay strong and keep reaching for their dreams.
The wreath and the synthetic onyx together make a great combination - the strength of the black onyx gives the reader the power and the protection necessary to achieve all of their goals.
