Banded Rhodochrosite Ring
A banded rhodochrosite cabochon set in a textured copper frame. This stone is actually the cross section of a rhodochrosite stalactite! The bands are formed as the stalactite grows thicker and thicker over time.
Electroformed copper setting and band. Size. 6.75
Band has been sealed to prevent the natural green tinge that may develop over time on some people's skin. To extend the life span of your jewelry and prevent tarnishing, do not wear your jewelry in water or very sweaty situations (showering, saunas, hot tubs, working out, etc.)
Amelia's new houseline of jewelry is heavy on the crystals, gems, and minerals with a dose of geometry and natural elements. As a life long collector Amelia always has a pocket or small tin on hand to stash the perfect shell, the best dried fern, or a really nice stone. Each piece of jewelry is one of a kind and crafted by hand. Many incorporate organic objects sealed in copper through a process called electroforming. This process is a combination of conductive metal, electricity, and time. Copper molecules slowly adhere to the chosen areas of an item and can fully encase it or form around it. This process combines science and art in way that perfectly reflects Amelia's view of the world.
