Gemstone Love: Mood Stones

Christine Alaniz Designs moon stone cabochon gemstones

What is a mood stone, anyway? Most mood stones are acrylic cabochons, typically round or oval in shape, that have a thermotropic liquid crystal coating on the base of the stone. This coating changes color in reaction to the temperature of your body as you're wearing your mood ring.

Care and Cleaning

  • Since mood stones are usually made of acrylic or glass, you'll want to treat them gently. Avoid extreme temperature swings and immersing your mood stone in water.
  • Mood rings can be difficult to size, so double check your finger size before ordering.
