A promise of protection, The Mehen Ring holds space as we journey within.

Meaning & Gemstone Properties

Black Onyx is considered a protective talisman bestowing rejuvenating energy, aligning us with our true potential.

For centuries, the serpent symbol has woven its way through diverse cultures as a symbol of healing, transformation and primal energy. It is a complex and multifaceted symbol that evokes notions of renewal and inner potential.

An archetypal symbol steeped in rich history and cultural significance, the circle embodies unity and completeness. Perpetually in motion, this motif evokes the essence of eternity itself.

 

Product Care

To maintain the lustre of your 18K gold vermeil jewellery, rinse in cold water and gently pat dry with a soft 100% lint-free cotton or microfibre cloth. Avoid drying with tissue or paper towels as this will scratch the gold.

Remove gemstone jewellery before engaging in activities that may cause damage and avoid wearing with clothes that have loose threads or abrasive textures, to prevent snagging. Gemstone jewellery can be gently scrubbed with a soft-bristled or baby-sized toothbrush coated in warm, soapy water to dislodge any dirt.

Temple of the Sun rings are some of our favourite pieces, and being on our hands exposes them to the most wear and tear. To ensure the gold lustre remains golden and bright it is important to remove your rings each time we hand sanitise, apply makeup, cosmetics, shower, swim and even cook. Gold vermeil, like all non-solid gold, is designed to fade over time so our beloved rings need the most attention and care out of all.
