This ring twists, turns, and surprises with acute angles and contrasting colors.

A very fine, gem silica Chrysocolla is the centerpiece of this ring, and is accented by a glowing triangular fire opal. A 0.05ct baguette diamond nestles into a crevice on the obverse side.

Chrysocolla is a natural wonder of a gemstone- the intense color comes from oxidizing copper, the stones are often found in abandoned copper mines in the Southwestern US, as well as in Russia. The gem-quality stone is a silicte, which means it is quartz based. The natural Cerulean blue will actually deepen over time, as you wear it and your body oils penetrate the crystal matrix of the stone. Its value also goes up over time, as the translucent material is increasingly rare, and this even color tone is even more so.

Comfortable band. Completely one of a kind design.

This item is part of the Raw Collection

The Raw Collection

Raw gemstones- rough bits of mineral and color and fire pulled from the Earth and set directly into the metals they once shared ground with. Raw power, raw design... raw, unbridled nature- captured in art.

These are stones that have had no cutting, drilling, shaping or polishing whatsoever. They have internal inclusions naked to the world, crystal structures perfectly visible in some, while cleavage lines and shatter marks show up in others. This line is our second most popular, and quite often surprising people by how much they begin to love it.

This design line is in stark contrast to the CAD/CAM jewelry so often found in design schools and shopping malls. Nearly every piece is one of a kind, and custom work is a double blind adventure, as we cannot predict how the lines and curves of metal will follow the natural shards and angles of a stone.

Raw stones cannot be guaranteed, as they are often jagged and will wear over time. This, however, is one of the benefits of the line- a gemstones that will age while you do, slowly revealing the fire inside.

As often as we can, we buy the stones direct from the source- small mine owners in Kenya and Nigeria, Brazil and Oregon. We visit trade shows only once a year usually, so supplies are limited at best. Once a parcel of river sapphires sells out, that is often it until next winter, when we can meet up with the dealers again. This also makes it difficult to specially procure a size, color, or gem that may not be in our collection.
