The color of gold and the soothing green of a quality emerald - there has never been a more perfect partnership! Two material things that exist in perfect harmony, made for each other. The mixture of the oxidized sterling adds interesting contrast and texture.
Size 7 hammer forged 14k gold and oxidized sterling silver ring. The band is a delicate sterling silver oxidized band. The bezel is an oxidized sterling silver bezel with a contrasting solid 14k gold halo on the top. Solid 14k beads have been fused onto the side of the bezel of the ring. The stone is a natural .90 ct natural medium green pear cut Panna stone (emerald) that is pear cut. Panna stones are traditionally worn on the little finger for gem therapy.

I take great pride that every one of pieces of jewelry is 100% legally compliant with the US Federal Trade Commissions definition of hand made jewelry (§ 23.3 Misuse of the terms "hand-made," "hand-polished," etc.)!
All of my silver and solders are alloyed by me from fine silver bullion and pure copper so there are no toxic "mystery metals" in my jewelry. Every item is hand forged from molten metal by traditional hammer and anvil methods. The only 2 things on my workbench that a roman silversmith would not recognize are a torch and an Ipod................
I offer a limited lifetime (the limit is my lifetime :-) and I have a lot of good years left)service guarantee. If you lose or break a stone I will be happy to replace it for the price (the price I pay) for the stone and shipping.
I normally use insured International Economy Shipping which is 2-3 weeks to the US. Express shipping is available in shipping options. Express usually arrives in a week to the US.
Thanks for looking!
