This elegant Snow Queen Black Sapphire Ring is a fusion of delicate beauty and inner strength. The ring is made of sterling silver and six black sapphires (1.7mm-2.1mm). A snowflake begins to form when an extremely cold water droplet freezes onto a pollen or dust particle in the sky. This creates an ice crystal. As the ice crystal falls to the ground, water vapor freezes onto the primary crystal, building new crystals – the six arms of the snowflake.
