Ascend Ring • Pink and Green Tourmaline and Quartz, October and April/Angels
These beauties were handmade during all the coronavirus pandemic craziness & I can’t help but think that they were in the works at the perfect time. So many features of this design reflect what a lot of us need in this crazy life. Our rings are usually designed with stones placed straight across, but this one is unexpected and different. With the stones diagonally placed, it looks like a climb upward- ascending. Even when life is a bit “diagonal” right now, unexpected and not following the usual straight trajectory I am used to, this ring is a reminder that I can rise above the chaos. The metaphysical properties of Tourmaline are to "restore emotional balance and promote understanding, while relieving worry and promoting a feeling of calm". Smoky Quartz is meant to "neutralize negative vibrations and lift fear and anxiety."
Some of the stones are smaller, some are longer- each ring will have a unique shape and size because these stones are natural from the earth. Every ring will be unique.
The process: It begins with a handmade hammered band, which gives the ring a lot of pretty texture. Raw crystals are sorted through to find the best ones, and carefully placed onto the rings with the positioning just right, puzzle piecing the stones together, and the prettiest side facing upward. After creating a beautiful design, the ring and the base of the crystals are carefully hand painted with conductive paint. Using an electric current, metal deposits onto the ring and around the base of the stones for 15+ 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 can be left as is in silver or it can be plated in the thickest possible plating of 18k gold or rose gold. Long story short... a whole lot of time and love is put into this little beauty!
This ring is handcrafted with the very highest quality metal & stones. If ordered in silver you'll be able to wear it forever without ever needing it to be redipped since it's solid silver through and through (so I recommend choosing silver if you are hard on your rings). Or you can have it heavily plated in gold or rose gold (still as high of quality, you just may need us to redip it for you someday down the road). These rings will ship sooner if ordered in silver, longer if ordered in gold or rose gold. See FAQ for exact processing times.
