14k 18k Barely There Gold Rings
I started TerraStratum one rainy day in January 2010. It was not my first foray online.
TerraStratum represents my love for sterling silver, gemstones and above all, quality in the gemstones & worksmanship. TerraStratum Luxe is an etsy shop I set up for my 14k & 18k gold designs.
My Barely There line was born in response to my own hectic schedule and my work as a jeweler, grader and sorter, in an environment where large chunky jewelry is never a good thing, especially around pearls! The line features small 4mm cabochons in a huge variety of colors, beautiful, gemstones perched on top of an ultra thin, durable ring band. The result is a range of super comfortable, super lightweight rings - I even have customers who wear them under their lab gloves!
Owner, Maker, Designer
I'm Ariel and the sole owner and designer of TerraStratum. I love rings and this translates into my Barely There range. I'm a qualified GIA Diamonds & Diamonds Grader, GIA Pearl Graduate & Pearl Grader, & a GIA Accredited Jewelry Professional.
I specialize in making handmilled patterns for rings and all the patterned rings that you see in my store are not commercially purchased but are made piece by piece using plain sterling silver or 18k gold wires.
This is the place to come to if you want unique ring pattern designs.

Additional policies and FAQs
If you want to commission a custom piece, convo me with your requirements and I'll get back to you with a quote and estimated time of completion and an overview of my work process. I would be happy to work with you to create a beautiful piece of jewelry.
Please note that at this moment, I do not accept commissions for designs that incorporate items / gemstones / metals supplied by the client. In addition, due to copyright issues, I am unable to make replicas of another designer's work. Whenever it is possible, I can propose to create a similar piece but not an exact replica.

All enquiries should be sent via Etsy's convo system. However, etsy convos have been known to be flaky from time to time. We can also be contacted via email (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you know that your convos are acting up. We usually respond to all questions within 12 hours. If you have not received an answer, please log into your Etsy account and check the message centre.
