Autumn Foliage Stacking Ring Set - Size 6 (6.5)
A set of 5 stacking rings made from recycled sterling silver, one of which has a freeform circular dendritic agate set upon it. The bands have a hammer texture and an oxidized satin finish. This little dendritic agate demanded that it be included in my Autumn collection of one of a kind jewelry - it's quite unusual to see these stones with auburn-coloured dendrites like this one, and that's what makes it so fitting for the season :)
Sizing: Each individual ring measures to a size 6.5, however when all 5 are stacked they fit more snugly, like a wide band ring, and will best fit a finger size 6. Can be sized up by about a 1/2 size, to a size 6.5. Just leave me a note at checkout or send me an email via the contact form.
I adore dendritic agate. The dendritic inclusions look like the tiniest pressed flowers preserved forever in stone, and that alone makes them worth adoring in my mind. Of course, I had to indulge my inner rock hound and geomorphology nerd by learning more about these stones. Turns out the dendrites are actually formed through the weathering of rocks that neighbour agate deposits. As the iron and manganese are leached from the parent rock, they gather within the agate, crystallizing into the fractal patterns that so resemble plants.
All handcrafted using traditional silversmithing techniques, with my own two hands and a lot of heart and soul. Each North Star Silver order comes lovingly packaged and ready for gift-giving. I use GOTS-certified organic cotton jewelry bags and/or 100% post consumer recycled kraft jewelry boxes with natural cotton filling. All orders come with a jewelry care card.
