Here is a very unique hand hammered Sterling silver ring with a rare star Sapphire. This floral design ring has been a traditional Thai style and as a foreigner, I am pleased to have been made familiar with its intricacies. It is titled, "Flower of the Angels", so called as it was modeled after a jungle flower that grows on vines in the canopy of the tropical forest here in Thailand. The original contained a cabochon and was created for the Queen of Thailand some 400 years ago.

The feature gem of this highly ornate sterling silver ring is the Black Star Sapphire oval cabochon size 9 x 7mm with a 3.93 carat weight. This is a sapphire mined from Thailand near Cambodia in a village called Ban Katcha. Famous for the golden color of the star not seen in other Corundum, these yellow stars get the color from Hematite plateletts being the cause of the star rather than Rutile inclusions, though these often have both as this one does. The Rutile can make another star, blue in color, right on top of the yellow giving it a 12 ray star. This gem is not a complete 12 ray but additional rays in a blue color can be seen between the golden rays, even the camera caught them. With a hardness of 9 on Moh's scale this gem is suitable for all types of jewelry. Exceptionally durable in this hand hammered and durable setting with 15 prongs!

This unique ring is a size 9 in America, 18.89 in Germany, 59.1 in Thailand and France, R.75 in England, 18 in Japan, 19.75 in Switzerland.

I started this project by melting down fine silver and pure copper to create an ingot of 92.5% alloy of silver. The remaining 7.5% is only copper, no base metal was used for the alloy, less chance for any allergic reaction. The hammering began soon afterwords. This piece is completely hand made, hand crafted, and hand fabricated. It is not a casting, has no plating, no glue and no factory made parts. This style of workmanship is all but lost in today's high tech world due to the high skill level required and the lengthy amount of time it consumes. This old school method that I studied in Thailand is known to be the finest technique in jewelry production and adds greatly to the value and the durability of the jewelry. We stamped the inside 925 as it is Sterling Silver and also hallmarked it LEE, my makers stamp and my personal guarantee of quality.

I am happy to make you a custom piece of jewelry. Feel free to select any stones from my stores or send me yours to have me create your own LEE. Select your own style by telling me an item number of a piece you see, email me a picture or I can even work from a picture of a sketch you send me.

I can create a listing right here on etsy for the down payment on your personal item then another listing when it is ready for shipping so you can still enjoy the comfort of being on etsy while having a custom piece of jewelry truly handmade.

No stock photos!! The pictures are of the exact piece of jewelry being sold here and I have attempted to give you a complete view with multiple shots. They are taken with high magnification and show details you may not be able to see even with your 10x loupe, they will look better in hand.
