Arka Ring


alt text alt text

The Arka flower blooms in the Rajasthani Desert after the monsoon rains. It opens its intricate dark petals, to reveal a green centre, which on the Arka Ring is set with a glowing emerald. To enhance the traditional Vedic properties of the ring, the emerald is set so as to touch the skin below. This is the favourite of Lord Shiva's flowers, and is often used by the people of Jaipur - where this ring is crafted - to venerate him.

The word 'arka' comes from Sanskrit and connects to the concepts of the sun, crystals, wisdom, lightning, fire, and worship. Arka also relates to life force, symbolising a step in the connection between the various large and small cosmoses in which we live. The 22-karat gold of the Arka ring has been hand-etched, and then poured with hot enamel, by hand, in the pink city of Jaipur.

Color: Solid Gold

This bespoke item will be handcrafted in our Istanbul studios, over 4-6 weeks.

Handcrafted and etched in solid yellow gold. Please allow a 6-8 week turnaround for these bespoke, made-to-order items. Each piece is unique, which we believe is what gives it its beauty. Dimensions: Face is 1.4cm x 1.4cm. 4mm band at thinnest part.

Your unique piece of jewellery by Cleopatra's Bling has been handmade using traditional jewellery techniques and exceptional materials.

As we hand craft each piece, slight variations are to be expected and are what make our designs one-of-a-kind.

Please be gentle with your treasures and do not apply lotions and perfume while wearing your gold plated pieces. Please avoid water when wearing gold plated jewellery.

Gold has a tendency to scratch, so extra care should be taken when wearing and cleaning to maintain quality and appearance.

Sterling silver that is worn regularly requires less care, so we encourage you to wear your silver treasures daily.

I hope my creations bring you luck.
