A beautiful 5mm moissanite sits in a 14k gold bezel on a 5mm wide layered 14k yellow gold and 18k palladium white gold band. 18k palladium white gold is a nickel-free alloy that incorporates a bit of palladium, which provides a nice smoky grey color that is a lot more resistant to yellowing over time than traditional white gold, eliminating the need for rhodium plating.

All of the metal used in this piece is from recycled sources. This is truly a piece you can feel good about wearing, knowing that its creation did not exploit workers or harm the environment.

Please allow three to four weeks for fabrication of this custom-made piece. Due to the unique nature of these individually hand crafted rings, the exact placement of the gold bands may vary a bit (but not much).

Be aware that the layered, dual metal construction of this design makes it difficult (if not impossible) to re-size. I always recommend that you get professionally sized at a local jeweler, using ring sizers as close as possible in width to the band you are planning to order. Additionally, if you are unsure at all about your size, I can send out the palladium white gold core core for you to try on prior to adding the precious metal overlay, since adjustments are still possible at that point in the construction process. This would, of course, add a couple of weeks to my turnaround time. If you'd like to do this, please be sure to let me know in the 'message to seller' field during checkout.

This design is highly customizable - I can use a different stone type or size, replace the yellow gold with white, rose, or green gold, etc. Please contact me for a quote if you're interested in a custom design.

I'm now offering an optional upgrade to Forever Brilliant moissanite in this design. You can read more about this option, and see photos and pricing, on my blog: http://mcfarlanddesigns.blogspot.com/2012/08/forever-brilliant-moissanite-upgrades.html ; if you would like to upgrade this ring to Forever Brilliant, please let me know in the 'message to seller' field during checkout and I will send a Paypal money request for the additional amount due.

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.

If you would like to make two payments (50% now and 50% upon completion), please note your preference in the 'notes to seller' field and select 'other' as your payment method. Once I receive your order I will send a Paypal money request for half the total, or you can call me to process the partial payment on your credit card over the phone.

SHIPPING INFORMATION
-----------------------------------

If you live in the United States and your order total is below $2,000, default shipping is via USPS Priority Mail (insured). If your order total is above $2,000, complimentary FedEx 2-Day delivery is included (also insured). If you prefer a different shipping method, please ask.

I do offer international shipping; because the US postal service will not insure jewelry items shipped internationally, I use FedEx International when shipping outside the US; this is a more expensive but far safer option. The price listed here for international shipping is an ESTIMATE ONLY - actual shipping costs could vary by up to $40 over or under the amount listed. If you would like an exact quote for shipping, please contact me prior to checkout; otherwise, I will contact you soon after checkout with an EXACT shipping quote and we will make arrangements at that point for a refund or additional payment. International buyers, please be aware that you are solely responsible for any duties/taxes that your country may charge on imported goods (this amount is NOT included in the shipping cost due here, but is paid separately upon receipt of goods). Please do not ask me to lie on the customs form; it's against the law! I can also provide an estimate for duties/taxes upon request.

A LITTLE ABOUT ME AND MY SHOP
-------------------------------------------------

I am an eco-freak! Wherever I possibly can, I make decisions that support the health of the environment, as well as the people and other animals that inhabit our earth.

I use recycled office supplies and shipping materials whenever possible. My studio electricity is generated from solar panels on our garage roof. I purchase carbon offsets for shipping. And of course my designs incorporate only recycled metals and ethically sourced stones. Please visit my 'About' page here on Etsy for more info!

All of my jewelry is vegan-friendly meaning no animal products (pearls, silk, leather, etc.) were used in its construction.
