The iridescence of the aura agate stands out against the oxidized sterling silver of the hammered ring band, mimicking the colorful swirls of gases in the blackness of space. The "aura" part of it's name means that it has a thin coating of titanium, which created the iridescent effect on the stone's surface. The thick ring band has been hammered to create the texture, then oxidized and tumbled to strengthen the metal and give it a final polish. The thicker gauge of sterling silver used gives this ring band additional durability. All of the silver has been oxidized, a process which creates the blackened or antiqued appearance on silver. All metal used in this ring is sterling silver.
This ring is a US size 6. It is not adjustable.

A few notes on caring for oxidized sterling silver: oxidized patina on sterling silver isn't particularly durable to long-term exposure to water (like bathing or swimming) or a lot of scrubbing, as friction is the way to polish silver to shine. Constant exposure to tasks such as hand washing, bathing, swimming, washing dishes, etc., will slowly wear away the oxidized patina leaving a shiny silver finish. Cleaning sterling silver can also remove oxidized patina applied to the piece, so use caution when cleaning if there is desired oxidized patina.
