The hammered texture and the oxidized finish create the perfect rustic sterling silver band! This ring band is made from 12g sterling silver. It 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.
Please let me know your desired ring size in the notes at check-out (US sizes 3- 13.5). Your ring will be custom made in the size specified at checkout. You will not be receiving this exact ring, but rather a ring made in your size of the same design. As with any handmade product, these rings will not be completely identical. This listing is for one ring band. Pictures showing multiple are there to show the differences in texture that occur due to the handmade nature of the rings.
This item is made-to-order. It will be shipped upon completion of the piece. Please check my shop announcements and time frames listed under shipping options for estimated arrival times. Shipping options will be available to choose upon check-out.
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.
