Description

hand crafted artisan 5mm hammered gold band

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
This band will be hand forged from scratch -- not cast, punched out on a press, or forged with pre-formed stock -- in the time-honored tradition of ancient metalsmiths, an art now rarely practiced. It will be made to order; please check shipping for lead time. Click "+MORE" for specifications. Find information on sizing, hammering styles, etc. at ravensrefuge.com.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

5mm x 1.5mm
14k gold -- white, yellow or rose
flat profile
waterfall hammering
hammered beveled edges
polished finish (or satin)

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

A beautiful variation, this 14k gold band is hammered around its center and then hammered again around each edge to create a subtle beveled profile. It is hand-forged from hand-rolled stock that is 5mm wide and 1.5mm thick.

Dan hammers the center of this band in our "waterfall" style, the effect tending toward a ripple of light rather than the multi-directional scatter of light created by hammering in typical bands. The textured bevel creates sparkle in other directions for added dimension.

Your ring will be made from scratch: Dan will alloy an ingot of gold, pour it, hand roll it and finish it to your preference. Because the metal is cold worked, hand forged bands like this one are denser and stronger than bands that are cast.

This listing covers up through size 10. Size 10.25 and above, please contact us for pricing.

The fourth picture shows the band in 14k white gold with no bevels and a polished finish.

The fifth picture shows a 5mm x 2mm comfort fit variation of this band in a satin finish with very narrow bevels. Comfort fit bands require a bit more gold -- please contact us for a price if you are interested in this style.

We can make this band for you in any width, any size; and we can make it in any of the following metals:

* platinum
* palladium
* 14k gold: X1 white, palladium white, rose, or yellow
* 18k gold: X1 white, palladium white, rose, or royal yellow
* 21k yellow gold

If you would like to customize the dimensions or metal of this band, please contact us for a quote.

REGARDING WHITE GOLD & PALLADIUM: we typically make our white gold bands with X1 alloy, which renders the bands extremely white and durable, with no need to rhodium plate. We also are able to make the bands in palladium white gold, which is softer and a bit greyer in color than nickel white gold, but warmer in color than X1 white gold. Palladium 950 is an alternative to platinum, but softer than X1 white gold. The hard qualities of X1 white gold make it an especially good choice for a man's wedding band.

Etsy keeps your payment information secure. Etsy shops never receive your credit card information.
At this time, we accept credit cards via Paypal and money orders. If you choose to pay with a money order, please make payment to "Ravens' Refuge." Please note that you DO NOT need a Paypal account in order to pay by credit card through Paypal as a guest. Just click on the Paypal link and follow the directions -- it's safe and easy!

For special orders, we typically require a 50% deposit up front, with the balance due upon completion (prior to shipping). We are happy to take installments for any of our items, as well, with whatever increments work for you. A deposit will get your order into our queue.

If you would like to change your order after Dan has started working on it (or after you've received it), there will be a labor charge dependent on time spent.

If you would like to pay with a personal check, please contact us prior to purchasing. In the event that we agree to payment with a personal check, the check will be held for two weeks prior to shipment of the item.

Returns & exchanges

I gladly accept returns, exchanges, and cancellations

Contact me within: 3 days of delivery
Ship items back within: 7 days of delivery
Request a cancellation within: 2 days of purchase

Returns and exchange details

We want you to be happy with your jewelry and we will do our best to meet your expectations. If you are not happy with your item, please let us know how we can remedy the situation.

For listed items, exchanges or full refunds may be made if the item is returned in original, unworn condition within 7 days of delivery. Special orders may be returned within 7 days of delivery for store credit only. (Basic bands may be returned for a full refund, even if dimensions have been customized outside of our listed items.) A labor charge for the special ordered ring will be deducted from the store credit.

Rush orders that we are able to accommodate will be returnable for store credit only. A labor charge for the rush ordered ring will be deducted from the store credit, as will the rush fee.

If we consider the sale to be final, we will notify you prior to setting up your deposit listing. Shipping costs will not be refunded.

If two rings are ordered with the clear intent of returning one and keeping the other, there will be a labor fee of $100 for the ring returned. Our return policy is meant to alleviate the concerns that arise when ordering jewelry sight unseen over the Internet. (Dan makes all of our rings specifically for the person ordering. We lose labor time when rings are ordered, for example, simply for the purpose of trying on with engagement rings.)

All jewelry must be paid for within one year of the initial deposit. In the event that an item is ordered and payment is completed six months or later from the time of the initial deposit, any requested refund will incur either a 10% restocking fee for items over $1000 in price or a $100 restocking fee for items less than $1000 in price. Shipping costs will not be refunded.

QUALITY OF WORKMANSHIP IS GUARANTEED. Though we hope it will not be necessary, if your piece needs to be repaired due to faulty workmanship, we certainly will repair it free of charge. In the event that your piece requires repair due to normal wear, we will repair it at minimal cost in addition to shipping costs.

We guarantee against loss of diamonds and gemstones due to normal wear and tear for one year post receipt. We highly recommend that all stones be checked at least once each year to ensure that they are not loose.

Any and all warranties related to workmanship and resizing will be void if another jeweler has worked on our jewelry. (Setting checks are fine as long as the jeweler has not worked on the ring.)
