Olive You • Tourmaline Ring
Olive You • Tourmaline, birthstone for October
With two crystals side by side, this ring just feels like it is saying "I love you." One stone is laying down and the other stone so close to it and standing tall. To me it represents someone I love standing by me while I go through any hard thing that has me down & being there for every good thing too. I am not alone. I hope that as you wear this ring, it reminds you that you are loved.
Each of these rings are made with two really high quality green Tourmaline crystals. In the sunlight, many of the green Tourmaline crystals shine a warm green clarity to them that is just so gorgeous. The crystals are a darker green when looked at in the shade.
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.
