CUSTOM ORDER JEWELRY
This ring was made of sterling silver (925) made by hand in my workshop.
The pattern for this ring comes from the ginkgo biloba leaf that I find absolutely beautiful. You will find a medley of ginkgo twirls on this ring.
I named it silver apricot, which is one of the nicknames of this plant, as the maidenhair tree. The Ginkgo biloba is a tree with leaves as fascinating as its history. This is the oldest known family tree that would have appeared over 270 million years ago, forty million years before dinosaurs appeared.
It is artisan etched. The etching process takes times but the result allows appreciating the intricate and delicate patterns. The bas relief effect is really nice. The deeper part is matte and the upper part has been sanded and polished. Shiny finish.
Etching is an artisanal process which produces a unique design each time I use it. Two pieces with a same design will never be exactly the same by the hazards of the process. Each detail makes a unique piece.
Polished, shiny finish.
Sample size: 8 1/4.
Width of the band: 6 mm (0.236 inches).
