Handmade from solid sterling silver, this flat shaped band is hammered, to give a linear texture, with a highlight of pure 24ct gold. The ancient technique of Keum Boo (meaning ‘applied gold’) is used to permanently bond the fine layer of gold to the fine silver surface of the ring, using only heat & pressure, by hand.
The whole ring is then oxidised to an almost charcoal/ gunmetal grey, to increase the contrast between the 2 precious metals & texture. The dark oxidised surface colouring will eventually wear back to silver, where it gets rubbed, which gives the ring a gorgeous antique look. If you really love the darkness though, it can be re-oxidised back to the darkest tone whenever you like!
