Width Pictured: 13mm 1st 3 photos
Choose between 8mm – 14mm wide
Choose desired core metals for your ring
Thickness: 2.5mm approximately
Materials: Outer metal is 999 Fine silver
Core metals are either:
925 Sterling silver, brass or 14K gold
High quality materials from within USA
Difference between the metal options:
Sterling Silver & Brass Cross – Brass turns a yellowish brown, like an antique brass. Therefore, for the life of the ring, there would be a yellowish brown cross on a sterling silver core. This option is quite durable.
Sterling Silver & 14K Yellow Gold Cross – The gold cross does not oxidize brown at all, it remains the same bright gold color as seen in the photos forever. The gold cross option is even more durable than the brass cross.
14K White & 14K Yellow Gold Core – Highest quality option. The entire core is solid gold, and the cross will never oxidize brown. It will stay the colors you see in the photos forever. If you like the color of the cross in the photos, and do not want the cross to turn brown, you may want to go with a solid 14K gold core. This is the most durable option.
See the 3rd to last photo for an example of what an aged brass and aged 14K yellow gold looks like. It is a different design, but this gives you a visual of what the different cross metals will look like for the life of the ring.

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 2nd 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.
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.
1 Thessalonians 5:4-5 – But you, brothers and sisters, are not in darkness so that this day should surprise you like a thief. You are children of the light and children of the day. We do not belong to the night or to the darkness.
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.
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.
