Size 7.5 hammer forged sterling silver ring. The stone is a high quality natural 1.25 ct medium dark green Columbian emerald (panna stone). The band is hand wrought sterling silver with 18K gold sheet fused to the band on either side of the stone. The bezel is topped with a solid 18K gold strip for contrast to the oxidized silver and to really ¨pop¨ the color of the emerald. The silver has been finished with an antique gray patina.
The stone itself is a nice vivid medium dark green with excellent color saturation and ¨water clear¨clarity. Much nicer in person! If you need it in another size, just let me know!

All of my silver and solders are alloyed by me from fine silver bullion and pure copper so there are no toxic "mystery metals" in my jewelry. Every item is hand forged from molten metal by traditional hammer and anvil methods. The only 2 things on my workbench that a roman silversmith would not recognize are a torch and an Ipod................
I offer a limited lifetime (the limit is my lifetime :-) and I have a lot of good years left)service guarantee. If you lose or break a stone I will be happy to replace it for the price (the price I pay) for the stone and shipping.
I normally use insured International Economy Shipping which is 2-3 weeks to the US. Express shipping is available in shipping options. Express usually arrives in a week to the US.
