This listing is for one Opal ring. We offer all 12 birthstones in your choice of three different metals: copper, rhodium-plate, and gold-plate. A beautiful hand selected raw birthstone crystal has been electroformed onto a dainty band. These are teeny-tiny birthstone stackers perfect for stacking or wearing as a minimal ring. Each stone is unique, just like mother nature made them. 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. Rhodium-plate and gold-plate will not tarnish.
