The White Rust n. 1 Ring and Band are part of our permanent collection named L+G. They come in two versions, Normal and Wide. The rings are totally handmade in our artisan workshop, from melting the silver to the very last finishing. Their surface has an irregular, not catching, rust-like finishing. Being raw and edgy is a characteristic of these rings but they are accurately finished to allow the best of wearability.
The overlapping parts of the rings - a design feature, are not soldered to make it easy to tighten or enlarge them. Nobody's hands will be the same during the whole life and these rings are made to last. You will anyway have to bring yours to be professionally adjusted to a different size but it will be an easy work that will not modify your ring's features.
The rings are made of sterling 925 silver and have a polished but not extremely shiny finish. As all silver jewelry, they will tend to tarnish, specially in the recesses and if you don't protect them when not using (better keep them in a box or in a cloth bag). You can easily clean your ring by delicately rubbing it with a polishing cloth or with some dump bicarbonate of soda, then rinse and dry. Don't use this method on other jewelry unless you are sure it is appropriate.
A full black version of the rings is available, the Black Rust n. 1.
As every jewel we make, these rings are completely handmade. Each piece has its unique, small differences and is made to last for a long time.
We use recycled silver as much as we can, to reduce the environmental impact of our work and for ethical reasons. Recycled silver has exactly the same characteristics and value of mined silver but it is obtained from old jewelry or silverware. From our personal point of view, it adds value to the jewelry we make.
Band or big rings fit less than other rings. If you order the ring in your usual ring size, we will add appropriate room, proportionally to the band dimensions unless you specifically ask us not to adjust it.
These rings were first thought for men's hands but they are truly nice on any :) , just ask us for a custom size.
Please remember to accurately check which width you prefer, to be sure to order the variation you like more.
