ALEX Ring - Brushed Oxidized Sterling Silver Ring, 8mm wide
ALEX Brushed Oxidized Sterling Silver Ring, 8mm wide by Turner Duncan Jewelry Designs. Sterling silver ring formed from sterling silver rod which is shaped and forged to desired size and fit; then hand sanded, oxidized and polished to achieve an oxidized, brushed finish. Inside shaped for comfort fit and hallmarked with 925 stamp. This heavy ring is available in a variety of sizes, approximately 8mm wide and 1.7 mm thick. This is a high quality ring which should last a lifetime.
The oxidation process changes the surface chemistry of the silver to give it the darkened appearance. Over time, this oxidation layer will wear with the user. Your ring will change over time to have a dull shine. This makes your ring unique to you and your experiences! Age contributes to the beauty of this one.
All Turner Duncan Jewelry Designs sterling silver products coated and polished with a micro-crystalline wax which is acid neutral, water and alcohol resistant. This helps to protect from fingerprints, tarnishing, and protects the any applied oxidation. Because this oxidation is applied, a small seam may be noticeable where the ring is fused and soldered. This is due to the solder material being slightly different chemistry than the base metal, thus it accepts the oxidation a bit differently. We do our best to blend this to where it is as undetectable as possible. This is easily hidden by wearing the seam on the underside of the finger if it bothers you - the seam is so small, you may be the only one who notices it! :) Our products should provide long term, worry-free wear.
