So is this ring really solid sterling silver?? We bought one for our son's 18th birthday, and with postage to the UK we ended up paying 200 dollars. Our son has worn it about 5 times and taken care of it. But he showed me some scuff marks today and behind the scuff marks some black markings. He has no idea how this happened as he's just worn it on a couple of special occasions. It seems strange as solid silver should be quite hard. And then there's the weight of the ring. It doesn't seem right. It's very light for being a chunky ring in solid silver. So I found out there is a huge different between a hallmark and a 925 stamp. "You may see many items with a 925 stamped on them, but this is not a hallmark and is a stamp that any jeweller can purchase and stamp onto jewellery. A hallmark can only be applied by a professional assay office who charge for this service. The assay office checks the item in person, and then stamps it to confirm it is 925 silver, using a logo stamp that has been created for that particular jeweller". So I'm left feeling very uncertain about the quality of what we've just paid for and given our son on the occasion of his 18th birthday. Could you clarify the quality of the silver in this ring?
Hi! None of the metals we work with are plated nor contain nickel, cadmium, or lead. Our brass, copper, sterling silver, and gold are the highest and purest quality available.
Specifically, we use .925 sterling silver which is 92.5% pure silver fortified with copper. (100% pure silver is naturally very soft, so is limited in its use in jewelry.) How the patina evolves is heavily dependent on the wearer's pH, their environment, their habits, etc. Some people are 'polishers' and their body chemistry acts as a polishing agent, while some people tend to darken items further. To make it even more tricky, different phases of life, diet, etc. also affect this reaction.
Our high-polished pieces tend to stay bright when worn regularly, but darken up when left sitting exposed to air. You can brighten polished items back up with any polishing agent or cloth. We suggest the Sunshine Cloth, available on Amazon.
Keep in mind, because our metals are uncoated and forged by hand, minor imperfections may be visible upon close inspection.
It is stunning and fits like a charm!! If I look for a ring I look here first!!
It came correct and quickly..
What a beauty. I got this ring to replace another and it blew my expectations away. It came 10x faster than anticipated even with customization. 13/10 stars.
Grows on my everyday. Also ordered the wrong model and customer service changed it no issue. Responsiveness was great. Would buy for my wedding band one day.
Hey there! I really like the ring. It seems to be of high quality material. However, before ordering it, I got my finger sized so I’d make sure I ordered the right size. Once the ring got here, it fit much bigger on my finger than the size did. The jewelry store I went to sized my finger at a 12.5 but when the ring got here it was much loser. The ring has a special date on it (for a baby I lost) so I can’t necessarily return it. I’m a little bummed about it because I can’t wear it, but it’s still a great product. 10/10 recommend
