Antiqued Sterling Silver Abstract Offset Teardrop Vine Ring with Wave Band, Size 6
The focal point of this unusual ring has been hand-sculpted in jeweler’s wax – in a densely layered design inspired by tangled roots, or vines. The wax is then cast in molten sterling silver; and a patina is added for an antiqued look, which brings out the layers of the design. The band of the ring is forged and added after casting is complete, with ball ends and an asymmetrical setting.
The casting process (lost wax casting) means the sculpted wax is destroyed, so each cast piece is one-of-a-kind and cannot be repeated.
- Width of band: approximately 2mm; or between 1/16-1/8″
- Width of centerpiece: 3/8″ wide x 5/8″ tall
- Ring size: 6
