Glacier • Aquamarine, March's Birthstone
Aquamarine is a stone for stillness, calm, and quiet strength. Aquamarine translated from latin literally means "water of the sea" and with the strong powerful stones in this ring, Glacier was a fitting name. I hope that as you wear this ring, you'll be reminded of your own strength.
For the ring we used extremely high end raw Aquamarine crystals with gorgeous clarity to them. They weren't cut or polished, they naturally formed in the earth with these gorgeous bar shapes!
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, with the prettiest side facing upward. After creating a beautiful design with stones that compliment each other, 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.
