This finish has a dark grey hue and is fully oxidised with liver of sulphur that will rub away over time to an antique finish with wear (you can maintain oxidisation with a few tools, check here) Here are some examples of this finish;
This finish has been oxidised, but most of the oxidisation has been rubbed away so that the silver (or bronze) shows through and the crevices have an antique time worn look to them. The metal isn't shiny but has a matte feel. It will slowly shine up over time with wear. Here are some examples of antique matte finish;
Like antique matte, the piece has been oxidised, and rubbed away to have an antique like finish, but this option has a shiny finish rather than matte, and the silver (of bronze) shines through just a bit more. Here are some examples of antique polished jewellery;
Bright Silver Polished:
This finish has no oxidisation, and has been polished to a bright white silver shine (or bronze/gold depending on your custom metal choice).
Although this option isn't usually available in my listings, if you ask for it I am happy to do it on nearly any of my items.
This ring is a stunning gnarly forest inspired ring and features a tear drop rose cut gemstone of your choosing. The sterling silver setting has a wonderful eerie bark like quality, and has been hand carved in wax before being cast in solid sterling silver.
It is shown with an antique matte finish, but is also available in oxidised or antique polished (leave a note in the comments box when ordering)
Please note that all gems mainly labradorites and moonstones are different and if you have a preference for a shade of colour please let me know in the comments and I will do my best to accommodate you!
IMPORTANT: I would recommend going down at least quarter or half of your normal ring size for this ring as it does have a wee bit of weight to it.
If you need a quarter size (aka 5.75, 6.25) please leave a message in the comments while checking out and i will change it :)
Please note this is made to order especially for you so will take between 1-3 weeks for me to make and send.
I LOVE this ring! It's truly a beautiful work on art, and fits perfectly!
This is a seriously lovely ring, darkly elegant and made with attention to detail. Every piece I have from LSD (6 now) are well made quality with unique designs. I will return and I think you will also be happy with any piece you buy if you are examining reviews before making a decision,
Charlotte sent me a bunch of photos to pick my labradorite from, and was incredibly prompt with her convos. I received it well within the stated time frame and it is just gorgeous. The stone is lovely, and her silversmithing is beautiful! Thank you so very much _ժ
Very lovely and unusual solid piece of jewellery.
I was in a big brand jewellery store on the weekend, the pieces were very nice and well made but were generic and just left me cold. The very opposite of my handcrafted ring from LSD! I just love my new ring!
The dark blue colour of the labradorite is stunning in this setting!! The listing is right - you must go down half a size for fit. Gorgeous silver-work with a magical, fantastic feel.
