2 tone PLAID!plaid is for lumber jacks & punk rockers!A new take on a favorite pattern, the sterling silver ring has been gold plated with 14 kt yellow gold, and then finished to bring the silver out on the high spots, leaving the gold in the textured areas.** For gold plated items, do not use a polishing cloth or any other abrasive cleaners. Just soap and water. You may want to take this ring off if you are gardening or otherwise doing activities that would be abrasive.this unique unisex ring is a collaboration between my husband & I. He is also an artist; a painter & printmaker, so he has applied his engraving techniques the the wax ring band I carved.This ring was carved directly into wax, engraved with hand drawn plaid texture, and then cast directly into sterling silver using the lost wax process.Ridges will shine slightly with wear. interior is a satin finish.band is 4.5 mm wideI ship to the US and Canada.I accept paypal.
