Sterling Silver and Malachite Ring, Size 8.5
This sterling silver ring has a flowy, organic form – a perfect fit for the deep green, malachite oval that is set into the silver. The streaks of light and dark green in the stone are gorgeous and unique to this particular cabochon, as the ring will never be repeated. This is due to the way the ring is made – it’s hand-sculpted in jeweler’s wax, then cast in molten metal; and 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.
Once cast, the stone is hand-set in a bezel to finish the piece.
- Width of band: 3mm at its thinnest; 10mm at its widest (approximately 1/8″ – 3/8″)
- Size of stone: 5mm x 8mm (approximately 3/16″ x 5/16″)
- Ring size: 8.5
