Our Avon oval puzzle ring bears a rich blue lapis lazuli gemstone, a stone that may be flecked with calcite (white), sodalite (blue), and pyrite (metallic gold in color). 

The use of the beautiful lapis lazuli has a long and storied history: there is evidence that it was mined in northeastern Afghanistan as long as 9,000 years ago (7,000 BCE).  It is said to have been prized by the Indus Valley civilization between the years of 3,300 and 1,900 BCE. It was then more widely used for centuries  – you can see it in the original or in images of the funeral mask of Tutankhamun (1341–1323 BCE). Lapis lazuli eventually was exported to late Medieval Europe where it was ground into pigment and used by Renaissance painters including Vermeer and Titian usually for the clothing of the Virgin Mary or angels (Wikipedia).

Our four-band, genuine puzzle ring provides fun and fascination as you master its assembly and show your skill off to your friends and loved ones. Use our video instructions, and, with practice, you will put it together in under 30 seconds.

Sterling silver; available in sizes 3-9.5. Shown here in a medium weight with a semi-precious gemstone measuring 6mm x 4mm and weighing in at 0.55CT (6.4mm = 1/4 in.).

Artisan-crafted and hand-woven exclusively for Crystal Realm in the U.S.

When you use our ring sizer prior to our making your ring, we guarantee your fit. You may order the sizer before you order your ring. Or when you order your sizer at the time of your ring order, we’ll hold your order until you confirm your size by email. 

Once you’re used our sizer, if we deliver your ring, and it does not fit, we pay for the round-trip shipping for your free ring resize or replacement within the U.S. and provide a discount for overseas shipping.

There are two ways to request our sizer:
1. Order your ring sizer for a modest fee before you order your ring(s): Order your ring sizer here.
2. Request a sizer as part of your order at the time that you order your ring(s), and we will hold your order, send your sizer, and wait for an email from you with your size(s).
In either case, we will mail a ring sizer to you promptly. This is a physical, plastic set of rings in whole and half sizes that you can play with until you are certain you have a correct size. And if you find one plastic ring is too big and one is too small, we can make a quarter size for you. Please follow our included instructions for best fit.

Guaranteed U.S. delivery: Order by Wednesday evening any week, and receive your puzzle ring two weeks from the following Friday, i.e. Friday two weeks later.
Outside U.S. delivery: Depending upon where you are, please allow two to four additional weeks to receive the ring.
