How to order:
If you want a custom ring in this design:
*Select width & metal for the core
*Below are the Width & Core Metal Options:
*7-10mm wide, Copper Core
*7-10mm wide, 14K Rose Gold Core
*Select your ring size, add to your cart
*Please indicate the occasion and date
Difference between the metal options:
Copper Core – Copper will turn brown similar to a US penny rather quickly. Therefore, for the life of the ring, there would be a brown copper core. This option is quite durable.
14K Rose Gold Core – Highest quality option. The entire core is solid gold, and will never turn brown. It will stay the colors you see in the photos forever. If you like the colors of the ring in the photos, and do not want the core to turn brown, you may want to go with a solid 14K gold core. This is the most durable option.
From Darkness To Light:
This all dark oxidized ring is part of the From Darkness to Light Collection. The finish of the ring begins all dark and over time transforms to be all light. See the 3rd to last photo for an example of how the all dark oxidized finish wears off making the ring the lighter natural color of the metals.
See the 2nd to last photo for an example of what the copper and 14K rose gold will look like after they have finished aging. When you receive a silver and copper ring, the copper will not be brown right away, it will become brown after wearing it for a short time. Please note, the 2nd to last photo is not of this design, it simply gives you an idea of how copper and gold look after they age.
Custom Message INCLUDED:
Want to include a custom message inside your ring? Just put the custom message you want in the “custom message box” at purchase. If you want no message in your ring, put “NO MESSAGE” in the box. Your ring must be at least 7mm wide to add a custom message. Please keep the message to 16 characters to ensure it fits. See the last photo to see examples.
Ephesians 5:8-11 – For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Live as children of the light (for the fruit of the light consists in all goodness, righteousness and truth) and find out what pleases the Lord. Have nothing to do with the fruitless deeds of darkness, but rather expose them.
This verse is the inspiration for this design, but the scripture and reference is not actually on the ring. I can hand stamp the scripture reference inside the ring if you would like me to, just put that in the “custom message box.”
Tips on sizing:
For accurate sizing, I highly recommend you have your finger sized by at least 2-3 different reputable jewelers in your area. Tell the jewelers the ring is ‘standard fit’, and what ‘width’ your ring will be. If your ring width is 7mm or wider, have them use a wide band ring sizer. I can do 1/8, 1/4 or 1/2 size increments to get an exact fit. I can make your ring any size up to a size 16. If resizing is needed, I can resize your ring for a $30 resizing fee. Keep in mind, it is much better for me to resize your ring later on to be larger in size, rather than smaller in size for several reasons.
Please allow me 3 weeks to handcraft your ring order. Message me if you need your ring order faster, rush service may be possible with an added fee.
Please note, for any ring that has darker oxidation on it, oxidation levels and texture markings may vary from one ring to the next since it is handmade. Furthermore, the temporary dark oxidation finish will eventually wear off completely, making the ring the natural color of the metals. This can sometimes happen quickly, especially if one gets the ring wet often. Getting the ring wet will not damage the ring at all, but will wear off the dark oxidation at a faster rate. When choosing a ring with an all dark oxidation finish, please ensure you will be happy with the natural color of the metals. If you ever want your ring refinished, I can do so for a $30 refinishing fee anytime.
The dark oxidation colors of the rings in this listing appear different shades of color mainly due to the fact they were photographed on different days and natural sunlight was used for lighting. Also, due to the fact that oxidation levels vary from one ring to the next with them being handmade.
Added note about silver: The difference between “fine” silver and “sterling” silver is that fine silver is 99.9% pure silver. Sterling is only 92.5% silver with the remaining 7.5% being composed of other metals, usually copper. They look the same, wear & polish the same, but fine silver is more “pure” silver.
