Carnelian & Concrete Ring

Carnelian & Concrete Ring

60.00

Carnelian set in ‘concrete’, on a smooth oxidised silver band.

A glassy, translucent stone, Carnelian is an orange-colored variety of Chalcedony, a mineral of the Quartz family. Its color varies from pale pinkish-orange to a deep rusty brown, though it is most known for its brilliant orange and red-orange crystals. Known as a stone of motivation and endurance, leadership and courage, Carnelians have protected and inspired throughout history.

Oxidized silver is true sterling silver, but it’s surface has been intentionally darkened. This patina, a surface color that occurs when the silver is introduced to sulfides, is a sped up version of the natural tarnishing process. A layer of silver sulfide forms on the exterior of the metal giving it a blackened look. Over time and depending on the amount of wear you give your pieces, the oxidized finish will polish off and the true color of the silver will shine through.

‘Concrete’ made with an epoxy resin.
