DARK CLASSIC | Black Rhodium Sterling Silver ring with matt finish
- Available: Made to order (2-3 weeks)
- Unique No: 1585
This is a Black Rhodium plated solid Sterling Silver ring with a matt finish.
It has a Court profile shape that is comfortable to wear.
The precious metal Rhodium is twice as valuable as Gold and it gives this ring an elegant and outstanding look.
It prevents tarnishing of the Silver and is commonly used in plating of white gold in wedding bands for example.
Due to a speciality technique it can be darkened to display this stunning contrasting look of a dark grey metal, called Black Rhodium.
However, Black Rhodium is not quite as hard as white Rhodium and if this ring is to be worn daily it may need to be re-plated occasionally.
Pearls are natural objects and also demand gentle handling, i.e. it’s generally advised taking jewellery with pearls off for washing up or cleaning the house.
My thick-layered Rhodium plating is always preceded by a layer of Palladium, another precious metal of the Platinum family, which increases
the plating durability and won’t cause any allergies as for instance the common practice of pre-plating with nickel under Rhodium would.
The ring is 6mm wide and 2.4mm thick.
This unique ring is a UK size S1/2 (US size 9 1/2), which is a 61 mm inside circumference and a 19.3 mm inside diameter.
This is immediately available.
If you need any other size, I can make a commissioned one for you for a small extra fee.
Please allow for at least 2 weeks additional creation time for this new item and note that it will look slightly different to the pictures, because of its uniqueness.
Please add your size with your order.
All my pieces are unique and when it comes to rings, you want to know the finger size, if it is for the ring finger, pointer, thumb, middle or the pinky, left or right or even for a toe.
