Malachite & Argentium Silver Inlay Bentwood Ring

Malachite & Argentium Silver Inlay Bentwood Ring



Malachite has been in use for over 3000 years as a sought after gemstone, mined for its copper and for spiritual reasons. The stone is said to be the mirror of the soul and can be emotionally healing.

The stone's name derives from Greek Μολοχίτης λίθος molochitis lithos, "mallow-green stone". The mineral was given this name due to its resemblance to the leaves of the mallow plant.

This listing is for a wearable natural bentwood ring made from beautifully grained Queensland Silver Ash with an outside layer of Mahogany which has been inlaid with the finest quality Australian milled Argentium Sterling Silver in a double curving line pattern.
The silver then holds a solid piece of Curly Maple which holds a sphere of pure Malachite.

All rings are made to order by hand using the traditional bentwood ring method. Only hand tools are used to finely handcraft this item over many careful hours. Bentwood rings are extremely durable and strong. This is achieved by the natural straight grain of the chosen wood running the complete circumference of the ring, which generates zero weak points at all.
Sanded by hand to an extremely high polish and then finished with 8 coats of the highest quality acrylate finish, the ring is then polished by hand using local beeswax from Byron bay.
Due to the quality finish the strength is thus increased again with a completely waterproof finish. the ring is now strong enough for any adventure and safe to wear in the surf or washing up.

All rings are made to size so please tell me the exact ring size that you require. For best results please get a professional jeweller to size your desired ring finger in the evening to late afternoon two weeks apart in order to ensure the greatest accuracy in sizing.

The ring will come in a special timber box made just for this particular ring, perfect as a gift or as general storage when the ring is not in use.

Making the ring perfect for you will take between 3-4 weeks to your exact ring size.
