One-of-a-kind ring with a raw/polished piece of rhodochrosite.
I've made and make several pieces with this type of stone. Sometimes rhodochrosite presents a mosaic effect. Others show a banded effect with different tones of pink, white and brown.
The whole piece is the combination of the silver part (which represents the rest of the inexisting stone) and the stone.
I've made an angle cut and polished the front part of the stone, while the rest of the side is left raw.
Inside the hollow space, created within the silver bezel, is oxidized and textured with a sharp steel tool.
Piece size: 33 x 33 mm
Rhodochrosite: 20 x 20 mm
Ring size: 7 1/2. It's open and can be adjusted to your finger.
