@blushpinkbride:  It’s called patina when crevices of jewelery or coins are intentionally darkened. I have many silver rings like this.

@blushpinkbride:  It can be natural, but jewelers can also create it for aesthetic.

@blushpinkbride:  I would have said black rodium but maybe not? I do know eg for class rings, jewelers apply something to darken the indents in the ring so you can read the words, etc! Pretty!! I like it.

They do this to class rings all the time called oxidation (sp?) Maybe it’s one is the same. But that is one awesome looking set!
