The Peter Stone Company purchases raw silver and produces their own true .925 sterling silver alloy in their own factory. All rings are cast to size and craftsmen cut and inlay each stone for a perfect fit. Every piece of jewellery created is hand polished not tumble polished, which leads to a high quality finish that is noticeably different.
Peter Koslowski had been working on merchant ships since 1983 while living in Sri Lanka and was fortunate to be exposed to an abundance of precious stones and he began to purchase and trade them, as well as silver. During this period he also studied gemology and jewellery making in a number of countries. This then lead to the founding of the Peter Stone Company in 1992 in Bangkok, Thailand, where he still resides.
Broomsticks have been traditionally associated with witches and images depict them flying high through the sky on their brooms, often with their black cats curled up beside them.
As quaint as the image is, witches (and certainly not 21st century ones) don't ride broomsticks. In fact, the concept is thought to stem from a fertility ritual carried out by pagan women. They used to jump over a plant whilst straddling a broomstick to try and encourage the crops to grow tall and strong.
It's also likely that the idea of broomstick flying came about after mentions of astral travel and out of body experiences, where an aspect of the body 'flies,' as some witches do partake in exploring such experiences.
