Here are some infos about this massive ring as we hope that the person who will have it will also love its story and its meaning.⠀⠀
Our idea for this uniqe pieces was to make something in between a sea shore and the surface of the moon, with a geological feeling, bringing to evidence the strength and beauty of the natural materials. Its raw appearance is obtained by delicately hammering the silver to make it look like a rusted piece of iron, with a layer of tiny, torn pieces of silver on one side. The process for making these small pieces doesn't allow to exactly foresee the shapes they will have, so we choose the ones that fit better with the design (take a look at some of our Reels on Instagram to understand what we mean). The stone on the small conical structure is a green cabochon tourmaline.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
As a small jewelry brand we make all our pieces personally in our workshop, using both traditional and innovative goldsmithing tecniques. We value the metal and the stone we work with, as they are precious resources with their strength and beauty already before any human intervention. But we also value what we can give by interacting with them.
Our pieces always bring traces of this view. They are rarely polished and their surfaces are irregular (but not catching!). We think that a jewel should tell a story, have a clean design and show its link to the natural forces that shape our experience as living beings. We would say that all these elements are very well represented in this ring.⠀⠀⠀
The rings is made of recycled sterling 925 silver and the tourmaline is part of an old batch we bought years ago. 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.
