LIMITED EDITION Mermaid Ring // Rose Gold
Mermaid Ring // Rose Gold
Every other design in my shop is made with raw crystals that have completely natural coloring, straight from the earth that way! This ring is still made with an authentic raw Quartz crystal, but that crystal has gone through a process where gold atoms were bonded to the surface, giving it a different color and iridescent metallic sheen. Because it began as a raw natural crystal, every one of these rings will turn out perfectly unique. And come on... how can you not think of a mermaid when you look at this beauty?!! I couldn't name it anything else because this ring just belongs on mermaid fingers! 😂

All Little Sycamore jewelry is lead & nickel free. These rings are formed in pure copper and plated in the thickest possible plating of rose gold. The plating is 3 microns thick, which is much thicker than typical plated jewelry.
The process: I start out with a handmade hammered band, which gives the ring a lot of pretty texture. I spend a lot of time arranging the stones onto the band, hand-picking the prettiest stones I want to use and finding the positioning that I think looks best with those stones. After finding the perfect design, I sand the mounting to get the shape that I want and carefully paint the ring with conductive paint. Using an electric current, metal deposits onto the ring and around the base of the stones for 12+ hours. This slow build up of metal creates a unique and organic looking setting that very securely holds the stones in place. The ring is tumbled, hand-polished, and plated in a very thick layer of gorgeous rose gold. Long story short... a whole lot of time and love is put into this little beauty
