ABOUT THE ITEM: This beautiful hand-forged statement ring features a clear quartz on a copper band (approx 1.5" x .75" inches) . The ring is a US size 10. This ring was handmade using pure copper for the setting and then electroformed to create a bezel for the crystal. The ring is then coated with a patina and special sealing wax. Electroforming is an organic process that creates a coat of copper on items using an electric current. The process can last from anywhere between 24 to 36 hours. Because of it's organic nature, each piece created in this process is unique and has beautiful imperfections and textures. Along with the protection from the wax, you should not shower or submerge the jewelry in water. Because your jewelry is made of copper, it will age over time but can become shiny again with a nice polish. :) All of the pieces offered at The Mountain Druidess are made with intention and feature fully charged crystals. To recharge your jewelry use the sun's and moon's rays because they are very energizing, as well as energetically clearing. You can use this method to both clear and charge your crystals at the same time. Find a safe place and leave your crystal for 24 hours or more (up to a week) in sunlight and/or moonlight. FINISH Clear Coat- An enamel clear coat is placed on the ring. It will make it so that the copper does not touch your skin directly avoiding green coloration of your skin (which happens with certain body chemistry and is harmless and can washed off with soap and water). Please note that the benefits of wearing copper are negated with the clear coat.
