unEarthed ring with gold rutilated quartz
this lovely gold rutilated quartz was purchased in NYC long before i learned how to work with gems. i loved it so much i had to get it. it's about 1/2" across.
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 5 1/4. cannot be resized.
