Rosebud Wrap Ring • July and January Birthstones
The Ruby center as the rose, and the Demantoid Garnets surrounding it like the little green leaves of a budding rose held in close.
Ruby is the stone for joy, passion, spontaneity, laughter and courage. The Demantoid Garnet's green color is a symbol for Mother Earth, regeneration and growth. Demantoid Garnet is meant to increase zest for life, and induce feelings of kindness and charity. The combination of these two gemstones (July and January birthstones) not only makes for the most beautiful color palette, but also represents so many beautiful things.
The Ruby is somewhat of a purplish maroon color, and it is such a fun stone for this ring because it's unusually flat, which makes the ring feel so minimalist and comfortable to wear! There are 3 accenting green garnets surrounding the Ruby. Some of the rings are wrapped further apart and some have the two layers wrapped so close that they are attached. Each ring will have a unique look because it is made with stones that are REAL and straight from this earth, and I love that every ring is different. Just like every person who wears it has a different story of healing growth and love.
*PLEASE NOTE: These rings should not be resized. Do not push/pull the ring more open or closed. Bending the ring open or closed can make it crack in the back later on, and that cannot be repaired. This style is absolutely strong enough for everyday use, just take it off in situations where it could get caught on something (the only situations I take mine off for is hair washing and when putting my hair in a pony tail, when hair could get caught and accidentally pull on the band). Customers are responsible for keeping their ring safe, I will not cover replacements for cracked backs.
The process: It begins with a handmade hammered band, which gives the ring a lot of pretty texture. The 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!
