Here is a truly handmade Sterling silver ring in my style #162 of my online selection catalog. This handsome three gem design utilizes full bezels to secure and display the gems in a straight line and touching each other. The gems are brightened by the open back of the baskets. The band is a slightly tapered comfort fit and is built heavy.
The feature gem is a Brazilian green Tourmaline with eye clean clarity with a well executed hand faceted oval measuring 7.0 x 6.0 mm and weighing 1.05 carat. Tourmaline is a birthstone for October. Tourmaline has a hardness of 7.5 on Moh’s scale very suitable for making jewelry.
The four accents are sparkling white Zircons faceted 2.5 mm rounds. Zircon is not a common birthstone, however, is associated with April, September and December births. This natural gem is often confused with the synthetic Cubic Zirconia. In reality it is a natural gem from Ceylon with low heat treatment. The hardness is about 7.5 and theis variety of Zircon is tougher than the average.
This hand crafted ring is a size 7 in the USA, inside diameter of 0.682 inches or 17.32mm, the inside circumference is 2.14 inches or 54.4mm, in the United Kingdom, Ireland, Australia and New Zealand it is a size N½, in India, China and Japan it is a size 14, and in Switzerland it is a size 15.25.
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 4.5 grams.
You may custom order a ring in this design # 162 with other gemstones and it will be ready to ship in about 4 weeks. The feature gem shape can be most any shape such as oval, round, princess, cushion, baguette, rectangle, hexagon or emerald cut. The accents are ideally rounds. 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.
