ASH Ring - Reticulated Sterling Silver Ring, 5mm wide
ASH Reticulated Sterling Silver Ring by Nurtured Works. Approximately 5 mm wide, formed from a single piece of sterling silver rod. The rod is shaped and the surface reticulated by heating the repeatedly until it reaches a liquid state. This forms beautiful peaks, crevasses, hills and valleys. The inside of the ring will be sanded smooth, shaped for comfort fit and hallmarked with a 925 stamp. We will apply forced oxidation to accentuate the reticulation and polish to accent the raised areas. Ring will be coated with a clear, micro-crystalline wax. This is a very comfortable, easy wearing ring that is sure to grab attention!
Please note the ring pictured is not the piece you will receive, these photos are of our "standard" which is kept on hand in order for us to make a new one for you, just like what is shown. We compare every item made to these standards in order to provide you with the most accurate representation we can. Due to the handmade nature of each piece and the reticulation process, variations may be noticed, however we aim to maintain consistency as much as possible. There may be a small solder line noticeable where the ring is fused - we do our best to blend this solder line as much as possible so the line disappears in the texture of the ring. You will receive a quality, handmade piece - made to order each time, and uniquely yours!
All Nurtured Works sterling silver products are coated and polished with micro-crystalline wax which is acid neutral, water and alcohol resistant. Our products should provide long term, worry-free wear if proper care is taken. As all coatings will wear away over time, we recommend keeping your piece dry and free from any chemical or abrasive contact. If not worn regularly, sterling silver can be refreshed and shined with polishing cloth.
