Description

This handcrafted gold and black ring is made from sterling silver that has been reticulated to create a unique texture. I then added 18k and 14K gold to add interest and create a one of a kind design. Oxidation provides a rich contrast between the metals! Perfect for commitment, wedding or fashion.

Can be made in different widths and in wedding sets (convo us for an estimate and custom listing).

The oxidation (dark color) will wear off changing the appearance of the piece. As the black wears off, you will see the sterling silver underneath. This will add interest and dimension to the ring. Soaps, detergents, perspiration and skin oils will affect the rate at which the oxidation comes off. Re-oxidizing is easy to inexpensive to do at home. Please see My Policies section for more information on oxidation.

Convo me for sizes over 12, as a small upcharge will apply.

Design Specifications
.925 Sterling silver
18K yellow gold
14K yellow gold
14K rose gold
9mm wide
1.6- 1.7mm thick

Production time is 5 weeks.

Payments

Secure options
  • Accepts Etsy Gift Cards and Etsy Credits
Etsy keeps your payment information secure. Etsy shops never receive your credit card information.
We accept all forms of payment - Paypal and Etsy's direct payment (credit card) are the most popular. Please convo us if you wish to pay by check. Your order will not ship until the check clears.

Returns & exchanges

Each ring (except those in stock) is made to your specifications and is considered custom. RusticFORMen does not have dozens of rings in all sizes and styles so we cannot exchange your ring for another or issue a refund without incurring a substantial loss of time and money. Custom orders (i.e. wedding bands) cannot be returned for refund or exchanged for other merchandise. Please contact me if there is a problem and I will do my best to work with you to resolve the issue.

We do not accept returns for rings ordered in the wrong size and we do not offer re-sizing.

Many jewelers will re-size sterling silver rings and you can have your local independent jeweler re-size a ring that doesn't fit. Be sure to tell him or her if the ring has been oxidized, as they will have to re-size and re-finish the entire ring.

If you do not like the appearance of your ring, please contact us immediately. We work hard to make sure you are satisfied and will always do what we can to modify a piece, if necessary. If a solution cannot be agreed upon, we will refund the cost of the item (but not the shipping costs) if it is returned un-used in original packaging within 10 days of receiving it. RusticFORMen does not issue refunds for items that are not returned in a timely manner. Mail returned items to:
Robin Largo
318 N 2nd St.
Libertyville, IL 60048

Once you order a custom ring, you have 48 hours in which to cancel your order for a full refund. After that time, we will keep 15% of the total price, plus the cost of any gemstones that we had to order specifically for your ring.

Additional policies

OXIDATION is not permanent. While I use a commercial lacquer over my oxidized rings, the lacquer and oxidation will wear off. In some people it wears off quickly - in others, it comes off slowly, changing the appearance of the ring over the course of months.

Skin oils, perspiration and soaps will take off the oxidation more quickly.

Oxidation does not make your skin turn colors when it comes off.

You can oxidize at home with liver of sulphur. Drop a bean sized portion in about 1 cup of hot (but not boiling) water. Then dip your ring (make sure it is clean and dry). You can hold it and watch it turn from golden brown to reddish blue to teal to gray. The texture in the rings allow for different areas to oxidize at different rates resulting in a pleasing color palette.

Antiquing or blackening liquids can be painted on your piece if you want the piece to be dark gray/black. Most of these solutions will darken both silver and gold. Please refer to the instructions or the manufacturer with questions.

BLACK RHODIUM PLATING - Rhodium plating is similar to oxidization in the finished appearance by making the sterling silver a dark charcoal color, however rhodium plating is far more durable and longer lasting. As it is a plating, it will wear over time - the wear time is unique to each individual.

** Please note, although I use thick rhodium layer... as any plating it will
fade over time. You can always send me the ring for renewing the black
plating, for only the shipping costs (about $10)

FAQs

IN STOCK items ship in 1 to 2 business days. We convo customers after each order and your delivery time will be confirmed in this communication.

Please allow 4 to 5 weeks for CUSTOM pieces - although actual production is less for most orders.

Production time of 1 to 2 weeks is considered RUSH and if we can accommodate this quick turnaround for you, a fee of $50 to $75 will apply. Please convo us before ordering to confirm that we can meet your deadline.
Visit your local jeweler and have your finger sized. Then, then try on several rings in the width you are considering to confirm the fit. Wider rings (7mm - 11mm) fit more snugly than narrow bands.

We have plastic ring sizers than can be purchased from our shop. The sizers are only 2-3mm wide so you may have to add 1/2 size if you are purchasing a wider ring.

Under no circumstances do we recommend using online paper measurements as they do not provide accurate measurements.
We do not have a retail store where we can meet customers. Our business is run from a small studio and for insurance purposes we cannot allow customers in the workspace. Selling online allows us to keep prices low and customer service high. When necessary, we discuss projects over the phone but time constraints prohibit us from meeting with customers in person.
We do offer free engraving on some styles. However, our engraving equipment is limited to one font, in capital letters and the uneven surface of our designs make it difficult for spacing of letter to be “perfect”. If you prefer a cleaner, more professional look, the ring can be easily engraved by a commercial jeweler or at a mall kiosk where they use more sophisticated (often laser) equipment and more fonts and characters are available.
CUSTOM rings cannot be returned or refunded.

IN STOCK rings may be returned for full refund (less shipping charges) if the ring is sent back to us within 10 days, unworn, in the original packaging. We ask that you contact us within 3 days of deliver to notify us that you will returning an IN STOCK item.
Generally, no. We can re-size SOME rings, and this is done on a case-by-case basis. Because re-sizing is a labor intensive process, we do charge a fee, which is determined by the type of ring and the materials and time required.
Contact us immediately if you are not happy with the appearance of your ring. We will modify the piece to suit your needs.
If you are worried about the oxidation wearing off, we do not recommend purchasing an oxidized piece, especially a ring that will be worn on a daily basis. The oxidation WILL WEAR OFF and we cannot predict the rate at which it will do so. Soaps and detergents will take off oxidation. Taking oxidized jewelry off during hand washing, swimming, showers and sleep will help preserve the oxidized color. Every person has different body chemistry and will react to silver (and whatever alloys are in sterling silver) differently.

Our oxidized designs have a coating of industrial lacquer to protect the oxidized color. Still, oxidized rings can begin to wear in as quickly as a few days for some people.
Black rhodium is a metal and we plate some of our designs with it to achieve a solid, dark gray, almost black, color. It is more durable than oxidation but it will still wear off over time, especially in rings worn daily.
We do not work with customer’s gemstones or other materials for a number of reasons including liability for materials in transit as well as replacement for stones damaged during setting.
