New Commission Work: Vintage Hand Carved Ring

This oxidized fine silver ring took me a marathon 12 hours, between carving, casting and finishing.  Inspired by a vintage design, I recreated this piece with 5 tube settings including birth stones of the couple commissioning it (topaz and sapphire).  The oxides on the hand carved band are supposed to reference wear and age.  I think the stones look quite nice against the grey.  I enjoyed the challenge of this ring very much, and was quite pleased with the results.  I hope it fits!  I just sent it off today…more shots below…
