My Fascination ring is a bold, sterling silver with black Onyx stone ring. Designed and made in India by Mahavir; not only this ring but all of his jewelry is designed by him.

Origin of Black Onyx
Onyx is considered to be a protective stone worn when facing adversaries in battles or conflicts of all kinds. There is myth about onyx that says the goddess Venus was resting on the banks of the Indus River. As she slept, Cupid used the point of one of his enchanted arrows to give her a manicure. The parings of her nails then fell into the waters of the sacred river. Since the nails were of heavenly origin, they sank to the river bottom and were metamorphosed into onyx.
There are a lot of interesting stories and myths about onyx, from Indians and Persians believing that wearing onyx protected them from the evil eye; to placing onyx on the stomach of a pregnant woman in labor would reduce the labor pain and bring on earlier delivery. Onyx has been used for protection, defense against negativity. Onyx is said to help with your rejuvenation, intuition, balance, grounding, self-confidence and more. Seriously, Google Black Onyx.
Regardless of the origin, the meaning or the reason; this beautiful Fascination black onyx ring is STUNNING!! I’ve been obsessed with this black stone ring since I first laid eyes on it. From the tapered band to the huge bold stone this is a true statement ring!!
The Fascination onyx stone is faceted into cosmic quadrants, onyx lures with mystical fascination. The oval gem crowns a sterling silver ring. The ring is made of .925 sterling silver. The ring is 1.2″ long and almost reaches my knuckle. Fascination is a full 1″ wide. What makes this ring so completely comfortable to wear is the tapered back; meaning the back of the band is thinner. I also want to add, when I purchase bold rings I normally go up a size because of the large band in the back; with this ring you don’t have to. I can actually wear this on my middle finger if I want. Fascination isn’t overly heavy weighing in at 0.42 ounces. It’s so comfortable to wear!!
