Rise Ring • Tourmaline, October's Birthstone
This ring is made with really high quality green, blue, and black Tourmaline crystals. Tourmaline is the stone for inspiration, happiness, and self-confidence. Which is strangely perfect because those are exactly the things I think you’ll feel when wearing this design. The name RISE is because this design just makes me think of all of our journeys- the steps we take as we grow, the dark and light we all pass through. I hope this ring can remind you that whatever part of life you are climbing through right now, you know that you are capable. You can stand tall like these crystals, filled with the self-confidence that tourmaline represents.
The crystals have brighter colors with sunlight shining through them, deeper subdued colors when in the shade. It is a statement without FEELING like a statement, because the stones are so flat to the finger and comfortable to wear as an everyday piece. The balance of it feels so good being worn, because the stones follow the shape of your finger and don't catch on things because they are set so low. That design helps to lengthen the look of your fingers and make you feel like you have the prettiest hands ever. I could go on and on because it is for sure my favorite ring we’ve done in a long time.
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 solid 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. In order for every ring can be proportional to different fingers- bigger ring sizes tend to have bigger stones, smaller ring sizes tend to have smaller stones. There will be variations in color (not every ring will look exactly like these photos) because stones are natural, straight from the earth. They aren't grown in a lab or dyed to be an exact uniform color.
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.
