Chrysoprase Ring Sterling Size 8
This is a luminous, gorgeous, pale green chrysoprase. It makes for a wonderful ring to wear everyday, forever. This ring is a lovely mix of luxe green stone and darkened, hammered and a little edgy sterling silver. Wear it when you crave some gorgeous green or stack it with other silver bands for your own unique take on it.
Chrysoprase belongs to the chalcedony group of quartz crystals. It is one of the birthstones for May and has traditionally symbolized happiness, enterprise and prudence.
SETTING: I set it in fine silver and sterling on a half-round sterling band. I added a rustic, hammered texture on the band.
SIZE: This stone is about 20mm x 7mm (3/4" x 1/4") and the band is about 4mm (5/32") wide. See the photos on my hand for scale. This ring is size 8.
FINISH: I gave the silver a light patina to give it a boho feel and to bring out the texture on the band.
