This listing is for one Herkimer Diamond ring.
We offer all 12 birthstones in your choice of three different metals: copper, fine silver plate, and gold-plate. A beautiful hand selected raw birthstone has been electroformed onto a dainty band. The exception is moonstone where we use a cabochon instead of a raw stone, but each is still one of a kind. Each ring will be as unique as you, just like mother nature made 'em!
These are tiny birthstone stackers perfect for stacking or wearing as a single ring. No two will be the same so allow for differences between pieces.
The following birthstones are available:
Garnet - January
Amethyst - February
Aquamarine - March
Herkimer Diamond - April
Emerald - May
Moonstone - June
Ruby - July
Peridot - August
Sapphire - September
Opal - October
Topaz - November
Turquoise - December
Electroforming is the process of building up copper deposits on any object. The process can be very slow and it almost has a mind of its own. Sometimes there are striations in the copper, sometimes pits, sometimes there are little copper spheres. The results are always beautiful and unexpected making each piece entirely unique. Each piece had been cleaned up by hand and finished in the tumbler. The copper is absolutely raw... no added chemicals or sealants.
To maintain the finish as long as possible, avoid prolonged exposure to water as well as harsh chemicals. The copper will oxidize and darken over time giving it a warm deep finish. This is natural and every oxidation is unique to the person who wears it and the environment in which they live. The copper grows with you. You can bring back the original sheen by gently rubbing it with a soft polish cloth. Greening may happen. It doesn't happen to everyone. I leave the metals raw to avoid causing any reactions to additional chemicals. Gold-plate will not tarnish. The fine silver plate can tarnish, but with care the finish should last a long time.
