Large, fused sterling silver ring, recycled silver Three wide bands of silver fused together. The process of fusing melts the surface of the metal, causing the three separate rings to become one. It also gives the surface an amazing texture, it's own skin. Sits beautifully on your finger. This is an absolute one off. Ring size US 9 1/4, UK S 1/2, European size 21 (61mm finger circumference). The ring is 8mm wide and 3mm thick. Comes in a matt white presentation box. All of my silver and gold comes from a smelter who is externaly certified as only working with recycled metal. They smelt their metals to the highest environmental standards, to cause the least impact on the environment. They do not deal with newly mined metals, as these metals cause much greater destruction to the environment. There is no visible difference between recycled metals and newly-mined metals. There is also no difference as far as the karat of the metals go- 18k recycled gold is exactly the same in constitution as 18k newly mined gold. The vast majority of my clients prefer their metals recycled, as environmental impact is of concern when choosing the perfect piece of jewelry.
