Branching Mokume Leaf Rhodium Roots Ring with Amethyst Gemstone and Gold Accent

Regular price $167.00

This is our Branching Mokume Gane Leaf Rhodium Roots Ring with Amethyst Gemstone and Gold Accent.

We adore the wabi sabi of our roots rings. They celebrate nature, simplicity, growth, and imperfection. They embody understated elegance - beauty waiting to be discovered.

This ring features an amethyst gemstone. It's one of the birthstones for February. It is four prong set.

It is made from sterling silver. It is then plated with palladium, a platinum, to prevent tarnishing. It's finished in rhodium, a platinum.

The leaf is made from our three tone Mokume gane. Mokume Gane is Japanese for wood grain metal. It's made by fusing many sheets of your metal choices with heat to form a billet, the combined alloys. The billet is then reshaped with force to rearrange the patterning of the alloys. After applying force the billet is polished down revealing the new pattern that has been created from this technique. The result beautifully emulates wood grain.     


This mokume gane is made with three different metal alloys: silver, copper, Shibuichi. It is patina-ed to emphasize the black-grey tone of the shibuichi and warm browns of the copper.

The gold accent is solid 14K yellow gold.

There are many iterations of this ring design. With different gemstones, finishes and gold accents. It's been made with a moissanite, a cubic zirconia and aquamarine.

All the different parts of this design are customizable. There are also iterations of this design with less parts, if you think you'd like more simple.

We also have different mokume-gane. We have a two tone, as well as a gold two and three tone. Be sure to give all the options a look so to you get exactly what you want!

Each ring is handmade: hand cut, fabricated, sized, soldered, and finished in my one-woman home studio shop.

Please give accurate ring size. Don't know your ring size? There's a printable ring sizer pdf link in my Shop Policies that will give you a nice estimate.  

These rings are slightly adjustable. Don't be afraid to make it form to your fingers. Wear-ability is a priority with LTS. We use sterling silver because it's tensile enough to form perfectly to you without endangering the ring. It's also hypoallergenic! Jewelry should fit well and make you feel good.

This ring come gift wrapped in our signature keepsake box!
