Adjustable Fordite Ring in Sterling Silver
A fun sterling silver and Fordite cocktail ring! It was fabricated by me in my northern California studio. It's adjustable from a US size 9 down to a US size 7. It's not meant to be opened and closed repeatedly, but to be gently squeezed until the desired fit is achieved. It can be made smaller by request.
Please be sure to look at all photos to see the entire ring. Dimensions: The setting measures approximately 1 3/8" tall or 35mm. The band is approximately 5/16" or 8mm wide.
Please see all photos for different views as the colors look different in different lighting, and please note that colors may display differently on your monitor. The sterling silver has a brushed finish. I have lots of unset Fordite on hand, message me if you'd like me to make something for you!
Fordite, also called Detroit Agate, is a modern recycled fossil. It's layers and layers of automotive paint overspray from US auto factories that has been cut and polished the same way gemstones are. Cars used to be spray painted by hand and the overspray and drips collected on the racks that held the cars. As it built up it would periodically get chipped off in big chunks, and someone figured out that it looked really cool when cut and polished! Modern day auto painting is a different process with little overspray, so the rough material is no longer created.
It comes in a gift box made of recycled materials, tied with a raffia ribbon, ready for gift giving.
