About this ring:
•Custom-made of melded sterling silver, 10k rose gold, and 18k yellow gold
•Approximately 3.5 mm wide (get in touch for pricing on wider versions of this ring)
•Built to your size by me in my home studio
•Can be oxidized upon request
•Can be chosen as a mount for one of my raw diamonds, rough sapphires, or a flush-set gemstone
Please note: the video shows one of these bands as a mount for a bezel-set uncut Montana Sapphire . This listing is for an unadorned band, with no stone set onto it. If you would like to use one of these bands as the base of a custom gemstone ring, just let me know.
This sterling silver and rose/yellow gold mixed metal band ring is made to order. The band is approximately 3.5mm wide.
I create these ring sets by melding sterling silver with yellow gold. This is an extremely layered and textural ring set. I make these for those searching for a band that looks like it has been pulled from the earth.
After melding the metals with my torch and formed the band, I use a series of hammers to create additional texture on the band.
The inside of these rings are polished to a high shine, so they incredibly comfortable to wear.
Please provide me with your ‘true’/unadjusted ring size. This is your finger size as taken with a narrow (1.5-2mm wide) ring sizing tool, not a ‘wide band’ tool (3-4 mm wide). I will adjust the ring sizes according to the band width, based on your true ring sizes. If you need advice on ring sizing, please get in touch- I will be happy to help 🙂.
Questions about shipping, insurance, sizing, etc.? Please ask- I will be happy to help. Contact me at treloar [!at] telus.net for other questions- I am happy to help.
But please contact me if you have any problems with your order.
I am always open to hearing your design ideas. Please contact me through the shop, or at email@example.com to discuss design possibilities.
If you are unsure of your ring size, the best way to be sized accurately is by visiting two commercial jewelers. Please ensure they size you using their thin sizing tools- not the wide band sizing tools, nor by having you try on rings from their display.
If any questions arise around being properly sized, I am always happy to help- contact me through the shop, or at firstname.lastname@example.org
I don’t provide a gift wrapping service. Rings and earrings ship in jewelry boxes that are hot foil stamped with the Specimental logo.
If the person for whom you are purchasing the piece shares your address, please be aware of the following: International export law dictates that the detailed contents of packages, and their value, be clearly marked on the outside of the package. This means that if they see the package before you do, they can easily tell what they are being gifted with.
Need secrecy for this delivery? The very best option is to have your package held for you at your closest Fed Ex store- if you are unsure of its location, I'm happy to help.
Our hands are busy objects, and any ring worn on a finger can become accidentally damaged. All rings need regular maintenance. Make sure you are buying your raw diamond ring from a jeweler with the knowledge and experience needed to ensure your stone stays put. Ask them about their warranty and their repair/upkeep policy. Look at how frequently they work with raw diamonds, and assess whether they have the technical experience to create a ring that will last your lifetime.
I stand behind each piece of jewellery I make. If something goes wrong with your ring, at any time- you slam your finger in a drawer and crush the band, you break a prong, you smash and crack your stone- you can count on me to support you with the repair.
My gold is all recycled- the metal plant I purchase it from has been in business for over 100 years. They smelt their metals to the highest environmental standards, to cause the least impact on the environment. They do not deal with newly mined metals, as these metals cause much greater destruction to the environment.
There is no visible difference between recycled metals and newly-mined metals. There is also no difference as far as the karat of the metals go- 18k recycled gold is exactly the same in constitution as 18k newly mined gold. The vast majority of my clients prefer their metals recycled, as environmental impact is of concern when choosing the perfect piece of jewelry.
I can use your heirloom stones in a new design. The stones must be pulled from their settings and checked for stability by a professional jeweler prior to shipping them to me. I cannot recycle your gold. I am not set up to smelt gold in the studio, so am not able to melt down your old gold pieces for you.
My current production times are listed in my shop announcement. If you need something more quickly, please get in touch via the shop, or at email@example.com
Depending upon my work and family schedule, I am happy to accommodate your rush orders. There is no additional charge for a rush order. However, please do get in touch prior to ordering to discuss your deadline with me.
Yes! All of my pieces are completely hand fabricated in the studio by me, from raw materials. I am able to create any of my designs with any stone, in any composition. In short, you can have your ring absolutely any way you like it. Contact me through the shop, or via firstname.lastname@example.org to get the discussion around your perfect piece of jewelry started.
A raw diamond is an exceptionally difficult stone to set properly. Their unique shape means that a custom setting needs to be fabricated for each and every stone. The way in which the setting is closed around the diamond must be approached in a very particular fashion.
I began setting these stones into my rings in 2009, when only a small handful of jewelers were working with this type of stone. As the appeal of raw diamonds has exploded, countless numbers of jewelers are now incorporating them into their designs. I have set thousands of raw diamonds into my pieces since then.
