Herkimer Diamond Ring
Herkimer Diamond Ring // April Birthstone
Each ring is handmade using raw, natural crystals. The beauty of this is that every piece will turn out perfectly unique. This design features a lovely little Herkimer Diamond. This is an authentic herkimer diamond that was found in Herkimer county, New York. Herkimer Diamonds are double terminated quartz crystals of exceptional clarity. The copper on the underside of the crystal shows through, which gives an amber colored look to the clear Herkimer Diamond.

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 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, given a patina to darken the metal, and sealed with a jeweler’s wax. Long story short... a whole lot of time and love is put into this little beauty!
