The ring features a deep coloured and highly polished hematite cabochon set into bright 14ct yellow gold.  Hematite was commonly knowns as bloodstone where it's name is taken from the Greek word Haima (blood). Ancient warriors were known to paint crushed hematite onto their bodies prior to battle which was meant to keep them safe.  It is said to give courage and strength to it's wearer. 

Hematite is a relatively soft stone so can be easily scratched or crack under significant pressure.
