Ametrine • Amethyst and Citrine Ring
Ametrine • Amethyst fused with Citrine, the birthstones for February and November
This ring is made with a rare and beautiful Ametrine crystal. This is a gemstone that formed naturally in the earth, when the two birthstones of Amethyst and Citrine formed together into one. It can only happen when there are variations in temperature and oxidation conditions during the crystal's growth process. The result is a unique mixture of etherial purples of amethyst and sunlit golden tones of citrine. The transition between colors varies with each stone making each piece absolutely beautiful. It feels like such a special stone, and I can't wait for you to be able to wear it!
The dual composition of Ametrine makes many believe that it is helpful for balancing and harmonizing energies, promoting mental clarity and creativity.
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 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.
