In response to skyrocketing gold prices, I've been working on a collection of wedding rings that combine smaller amounts of gold with palladium sterling silver to keep plenty of affordable wedding ring options in my shop.

In this ring, a gorgeous 5.5mm faceted moissanite (0.53 carat) sits in a handmade 14k gold bezel on a 5mm wide band. The band is composed of a foundation of palladium sterling silver with a thick layer of 14k yellow gold (this is not plating, but a fabricated layer of substantial solid 14k gold) built up on top in the front only. All of the metal used in this ring's construction is from recycled sources and has been given a matte, hammered finish.

This one is a size 7 (US) and will be shipped immediately, or you can order this design in a different size here: http://www.etsy.com/listing/76894801/moissanite-recycled-14k-yellow-gold-and (the sale price only applies to the one I have in stock in a size 7 though).

If you're not familiar with moissanite, allow me to blather on a bit regarding what I've learned about this amazing material. Moissanite was originally born from a meteorite over 50,000 years ago, and was first discovered by Dr. Henri Moissan in 1893 in material collected from a meteor crater in Arizona. These incredibly brilliant sparkling crystals might have been considered "diamonds from space," but Dr. Moissan's research actually identified them as a new mineral find - silcon carbide, whose chemical composition is SiC (diamonds are made from carbon). This stunning jewel is extremely rare, and almost impossible to find in nature. So rare, in fact, that the dream of using it in jewelry was an impossibility until man discovered a way to create and craft these incredible silicon carbide crystals here on Earth.

With more fire than any popular gemstone (including diamond), no other stone or jewel compares to Moissanite. In fact, fire can be measured scientifically and moissanite has nearly 2.4 times the fire of diamond. Moissanite also has 10% more brilliance and luster than diamond. Proven to be harder than ruby, sapphire or emerald and second only to diamond, moissanite is also extraordinarily heat resistant, durable, and tough. It is extremely resistant to scratching, abrasion, breaking and chipping. And because these phenomenal stones are grown in a laboratory, you don't have to worry about the ethical problems involved with harvesting diamonds and other mined gems.

Pretty cool, huh? :-)

Due to the value of this piece, shipping costs have been adjusted to include insurance within the United States. I do offer international shipping; if you live outside the US, please contact me for a quote specific to your location. Due to the lack of availability of insurance through the US postal service for international packages, I use FedEx when shipping overseas; this is a more expensive but far safer option. International buyers, please be aware that you are solely responsible for any duties/taxes that your country may charge on imported goods.

As is all my jewelry, this piece is vegan, meaning no animal products (pearls, silk, leather, etc.) were used in its construction.

I accept PayPal, money orders, checks, and credit cards (please call me at 707-633-6340 if you would like to initiate a credit card payment outside of Paypal).
