  • This listing is for one ring - size R 1/2  with the platinum jubilee hall mark for 2022 (see final photos of how these look on other pieces, and the explanation of what each punch means)

    This ring weighs about 8.5 grams, has a width of 9.5mm, scalloped edges and a flare of 2.5mm - 6.1mm at the front.

    Named for one of my favourite literary characters  (Leine Basso), this ring has a lovely, clear and vibrant faceted, freeform kyanite set into a separate band, that has a pair of flattened balls either side. I've shaped this to echo the anticlastic bangles I make.

    I've also applied liver of sulphur as a patination. I made myself one similar, and have worn it pretty much constantly for 5 months, including whilst at the beach. The patination will wear in the areas that rub your skin, but if you keep it clear of chemicals, it should last for a very long time. My ring is looking pretty much as oxidised as it was when I made it.

    All the silver I use is certified eco silver - recycled and reclaimed by my bullion dealer, or made using my own scrap. In this ring, all the elements are certified eco silver.

    I shaped the main band by beating it into submission and sent it off for assay after completion. It has a laser hall mark on the inside, including the 2022 jubilee mark (example of this shown at the end of the listing)

    Because this  is a little wider than usual, most people need to go up a half size or two when selecting one to wear, for ultimate comfort.

    If you would like a ring sizer, you can order one in my other listings, at cost and I'll refund you if you then place an order for a ring from me
