This ring is hand forged from a single piece of stainless steel using traditional blacksmithing techniques of fire, hammer and anvil. Bronze is then brazed on to the surface and further hammered. The inside of the ring has been sanded and polished to ensure a comfortable fit. The outside has been wire brushed. These rings are made to order. I try my best to match those in the photos, but due to the nature of the process, variations in the surface texture will exist.
REGARDING COPPER SKIN REACTION, BRONZE DARKENING PATINA, PLEASE READ: Bronze is a copper alloy, and despite it not being the liner material, it still comes in contact with skin(adjacent fingers, palm) and can cause green discoloration. Bronze will darken over time. The photos show a lustrous bright bronze, over time this will darken. I add a transparent coating of a product called Everbrite Protectaclear to help with both of these issues, but it's not foolproof and eventually wears off. How quickly depends on a lot of things, skin chemistry etc. The coating can be purchased from Amazon to reapply, a 4oz bottle will last forever. Please indicate ring size. Band width can also be customized.
