It's really hard for me to say favourite when it comes to rings as I'm pretty good at changing up the ones I wear. When I first saw this labradorite cocktail ring I knew I was never going to look at labradorite the same way ever again. It's just wow. I remember saying "what is that gemstone?!" and if you ever find one you like I'd recommend holding on to it tight as labradorite is so varied you'll never see the same one again. 

This is a rose cut labradorite and I would say that faceted labradorite looks much cleaner than cabochon cuts which are smooth with no facets. I really love the tallon claws hold this ring and as they are such a feature the yellow gold vermeil looks striking against that midnight blue. There is nothing more satisfying than drinking a great glass of wine and having this ring on at the same time. It's literally why we call them cocktail rings. 

Labradorite is great for someone looking for dark coloured gemstones to wear as they are so neutral and very easy to wear with most outfits. The stone is still vibrant and not flat like black onyx, which I still really like but has a very different look to labradorite.

Sadly this ring is not easy to come by anymore as it's from the ancient vaults of Missoma Jewellery. If you want to see some other posts on labradorite then click here!
