purple tourmaline + 14k gold ring | sz 6.75
Handcrafted from recycled solid 14k gold. The gold in this ring was melted down from vintage jewelry, cast and milled into useable wire and sheet, and fabricated with hand tools. This ring has a comfortable but thick, square-shaped ring shank, ensuring it will last and not wear thin over the years. The ring is also built in such a way, the top of the ring sits flush on the wearer's finger.
The natural purple tourmaline is given a warm hue by the gold behind it. The stone itself has natural inclusions which give it a sparkly, rustic look and contrasts beautifully with the smooth, polished gold.
This ring comes with the matching ring box pictured. The triangle-shaped box has a lid, and is made with the softest velvet. It will securely hold one ring as a storage box, or makes for a beautiful gifting vessel.
Ring shank is 1.5mm thick, measures as a US size 6.75, and fits true to size.
Top of ring measures 9x11mm.
