Cactus Spine Ring in Silver with Moonstone
Production Time: 2-5 days
The beauty of the moonlit desert is dramatic, and this ring is a perfect embodiment of it. I've taken a mold of a wide, ribbed spine of a compass barrel cactus and cast it in silver for a bright and modern look. It is wrapped neatly around itself to create an asymmetrical ring that features a luminous 5mm rainbow moonstone, Arizona peridot, rhodolite garnet, or blue zircon, which is tucked snugly into a bezel setting at the base of the spine.
The inside of the ring retains the spine's texture, which makes for a tactile, breathable ring. The ring is stamped with my maker's mark and "925". The spines are 5-6mm across, making the ring 10mm tall where it overlaps. The ring is not soldered in place, so it can be further resized once received. I would be delighted to customize the stone for you - just send me a note for a quote.

Recycled metal, in this case, is gold and silver that has been reclaimed from jewelry that is at the end of its useful life OR from metal that is left over from the silversmithing process (everything from tiny silver dust to excess wire). Recycled metals reduce the impact of mining while preserving the quality of your jewelry. Recycled metal does not mean that it is inferior in any way - it's not plated, a lower karat quality, or hollow. Exactly the same, just cleaner and more ethical.
