One of a kind sterling silver and keum bo ring

£100.00

One of a kind, reticulated sterling silver and keum bo ring.  Reticulation is the process of creating a layer of pure silver on the outer of the silver by repeatedly heating and dipping it in acid.  Then, because the layer of pure silver has a lower melting point, it is possible to melt the top layer of pure silver without melting the rest of the metal.  As the surface becomes molten, it swirls around creating the texture you can see in the photos. When you remove the heat of the torch, the surface cools and stays in it’s molten form.  Small pieces of 23.5ct gold have been fused to the surface using the korean technique of keum bo. The band is D shaped and approx 4mm wide, the top of the ring measures 22mm x 20mm at its widest points.  Size O3/4.  Was £190 now £100
