‘Blue Moon’ Sterling Silver and Copper Ring
The term ‘once in a Blue Moon’ is a popular statement to indicate that something is quite rare. In astronomy, a Blue Moon is a Full Moon, which occurs when there is a second full moon in one calendar month and is uncommon because the full moon cycle is 29.5 days – this happens every two to three years. The ‘Blue Moon’ is not necessarily blue in color, but a range of glowing yellows, reds, coppers.
The most recent blue moon was the inspiration for this ring. Made with copper and sterling silver, the copper dome of the ‘moon’ is encased in sterling silver (no nasty stains on your fingers) and sits on a 6mm wide sterling silver band.
