Three minutes ago I didn’t know what an electroformed ring was but now I want one πŸ™‚  I love the raw stone look and the fact that it’s organic.

desertgypsy :  That ring is gorgeous and you need it. The end.

 

 

ETA: the only thing I would be concerned about it the oxidation of the copper on your skin. But if that doesn’t bother you….

desertgypsy :  I’m pretty sure electroformed jewellery is hollow….not 100%, but pretty sure. You will destroy something hollow. Also copper will more than likey turn your finger green. Youde be much better off finding something made of solid sterling silver imo, and you can just allow it to tarnish for a rustic look, just make sure it’s not rhodium plated if you want the tarnish patina to be able to naturally develop.

Here’s a one that I thinks pretty you, https://www.etsy.com/ca/listing/165827686/186-ct-carat-all-natural-brown-rough
