You have chosen this ring because your higher mind is asking you to contemplate the meaning of enlightenment and peace of mind. Buddha, the enlightened one, mastered the tricks and traits of our complex mind energies through meditation and mindfulness. Buddha teaches you about feeling peaceful, calm and contemplative. He brings you a sense of balance into your life, giving you knowledge, compassion, meditation and wisdom as a symbol of enlightenment. Whereas Gold is the metal of the sun, Silver is the metal of the moon. Like the moon and water, silver is reflective and used to mirror the soul bringing you calm and balance. Another aspect of wearing Silver jewellery, it brings you more in tune with the vibrations and flow of the universe. Oxidized silver is silver that has been exposed to oxygen in a pressurized environment for a long period of time. It is different from traditional silver because it is a darker color and has very little luster.
