Natural Black Quartzite Hammered Silver Ring.
Please note: This ring will be made to order, and ready for despatch within 2-3 weeks.
This is a silversmithed ring set with handcrafted black and white British quartzite. I have collected this natural stone by hand in the lovely Northumbria region of England, in the United Kingdom.
I hand-forge this large ring in sterling silver, and set it with a handcrafted cabochon of natural black quartzite striped with quartz veins. The ring has a bezel surround which I make using silversmithing techniques, following closely the original shape of the stone, which is slightly asymmetrical. The silver ring also has a hammered texture, which gives a slightly aged effect and accentuates the uniqueness and handmade nature of the ring.
The quartzite stone is entirely natural and untreated. Set in sterling silver it creates a unique statement ring.
- Quartzite cabochon size: approximately 1 3/8 inch x 11/16 inch (22 mm x 17 mm).
- Ring size: The ring can be made in Large sizes from T – Z 1/2 (UK/AU), approx. size 9 3/4 -12 3/4 (US/CAN), 61.4mm-69.1mm inner circumference). Please send me a request note with your order with your ring size.
- The ring is open-ended.
Please note: the sterling silver proportion of the ring is just under 7.78 grams (part of the weight is the stone cabochon), so falls within the exemption weight for hallmarking according to the Hallmarking Act 1973. I purchase all of my raw silver materials from established, reputable UK suppliers.
