unEarthed ring with chrysocolla and citrine
One of a Kind
this green teal chrysocolla was purchased from a traveling gem dealer when i was in Cusco, Peru. i remember sitting in a small alley on plastic stool while he showed me his treasures and chatted about travel. this round stone measures approx 1" diameter. accent stone is a 3mm citrine.
each one of the unEarthed piece is made from recycled silver. scraps and pure silver grains are melted into liquid and then pour into a rectangle mold. next, the silver is rolled flat to various thickness for the different components of a ring. the ring band, embellishments and bezel are soldered and polished just before the gemstones are set in. a dark patina is added to give it an aged look.
ring size 6 1/4. cannot be resized.
