"Lýsa" in Old Norse means to shine, illuminate, to light someone's way, or to grow brighter. This piece is a warrior ring to remind you of your inner strength. Viney structures pull you deep within the forest of your imagination where you overcome every fear with a shield of light. Lýsa is a guardian and tactile reminder of the well of strength already within you, your intuition.
Hand carved in 18K gold and set with a lab-grown pink sapphire, it has a halo of sparkling lab-grown diamonds. The setting sits directly on the finger and is very low profile. This ring is truly one of a kind, although we may be able to create a piece for you like it with a different gemstone via our custom page.
Don't tell me the moon is shining; show me the glint of light on broken glass.—Anton Chekhov

Please note: While every effort is made to photograph the items to be an accurate representation, photography and computer monitors have limitations and differences. These images were taken with a Canon DSLR and macro lens (this shows much more detail than the eye can see). Colors and brightness may vary on different devices. I believe these pieces look so much prettier in person when held in the hand and admired by the eye (I've also been told this many times by Knot & Splice customers). I hope you're delighted when you receive your special piece in the mail.
