This is a truly handmade gents low profile ring with the center gemstone in style # 93 of our online dsign selection catalog. This sturdy ring showcases the solitaire gem in a short basket with a full bezel, very secure. The basket is mounted on top of a wide flat band with top and bottom ribs and it tapers from the head to the back in a straight slope and is built heavy.
The feature gemstone is a natural Zircon mined from the ground in Cambodia. The only treatment has been gentle heat which gives it this medium green blue color. It has a hand cut in an oval shape and this cut gives the gemstone a nice sparkle of light blue fire. This fine gem measures 5.5 x 4.5 mm and weighs 1.05 carats.
Zircons from this area have a hardness of about 7.5 and are suitable for use in many jewelry applications. Zircon is not a common birthstone, however, is associated with April, September and December births.

We started this project by melting down fine silver and pure copper to create an ingot of 93% silver alloy. Consequently our alloys are a little on the rich side of .925 Sterling. Copper alone is the remaining 7%. We do not add base metal in our alloy so there is less chance for any allergic reaction.
The weight of this well built, handcrafted ring is about 6.6 grams.
You may custom order a ring in this design # 93 with another gemstone and it will be ready to ship in about 4 weeks. The feature gem shape may be a round, oval, princess, square, baguette, rectangle or an emerald cut. You may select the gem from our complete inventory on the main website then message us for a quote. Once we know your desires we will create the custom order listing for you to purchase on this site.
We are happy to make your custom piece of jewelry with Sterling 925 silver or 18K yellow gold. You may also request that we use 999 silver or 965 yellow gold. Furthermore, you may decide on a combination of our metals such as a gold bezel in a silver piece.
All of our jewelry is made with the old fashioned hand hammered technique. We start by alloying an ingot then proceed with hammering, rolling, filing, sawing, soldering, drilling, sanding and polishing. We do not sell castings and never use glue in our heirloom quality jewelry.
Resizing or re-building to another size with the same gemstones is free!
Resizing one of our rings can often be done quite easily by hammering and re-polishing when only increasing by a size or so and there will be no noticeable delay in the shipping time. When we need to have the size decreased at all or increased by more than about one size then I have to ask you to be patient as it will need to re-enter the queue and will be ready for shipping in about 30 days. Right after you make the purchase be sure to message me about the new size before we have a chance to ship.
