This handcrafted statement ring features three stunning stones; a gorgeous piece of faceted pink Rhodochrosite, a delicious pink Strawberry Quartz and a flashy peach-coloured Ethiopian Fire Opal, ethically sourced from the Wollo Province in north-eastern Ethiopia. The ring setting has been made with a solid sterling silver split-shank ring band, a thick sterling silver hand-sawed backing, fine silver bezels around each stone, and molten sterling silver ball accents. The ring has then been sanded, oxidised in parts for contrast, and polished to a high shine. Like all my work, it is a completely unique piece made entirely by hand, using recycled silver, cruelty-free materials, and environmentally-friendly methods!
I have created this ring in a size 12 (Australian size X 1/2), but it can also be taken to any local jeweller to be sized up or down!
