The copper looks more on the light gold side of the spectrum of metal coloring (probably because its freshly fused) but I love the ring overall!!! Such a gorgeous opal and hand crafted detail

A very beautiful ring that I feel has had a lot of love infused in it! Aquamarine is my birthstone and it just feels very special. Shipped/delivered within in a couple weeks :) also thesixofcups has extremely clear communication with the status and details of your orders with them. Mahalo for sharing your art with the world!

Just got done fusing the silver to copper to make these bands for a wedding set! Creating one-of-kind engagement and wedding rings is one of my favorite things to do! This set will feature a Spectrolite main stone and matching his and hers bands.
Huge batch of opals just came out and they are stunning! I'm working on getting these listed by color and size, so you'll see exactly what ring you're getting!

About

Combining the elements and light to form objects of raw beauty

I have always loved those magical places where art and science intersect. Compelled to learn and understand technology for the purpose of making art, electroforming was a natural fit. Electroforming is a process not unlike modern alchemy. It is part logic, process and experimentation, and part creation, mystery and wonder. I believe that magic is all around us in everything that we interact with. The power of intention is possibly the strongest force a human can posses. Belief in that very real magic is what The Six of Cups is all about. I hope to create jewelry that will help you with your intention by providing a connection to Mother Nature through the Laws of Nature.

Frequently asked questions

When will my order ship?

This will depend on what item or items you ordered. Generally, Ready to Ship items will ship within 2 days or your order being placed. If you order a different finish or resize, please allow a few extra days. Made to order items are created in batches on a weekly basis. Processing times will vary based on the item and when you placed your order. Our average turnaround time for Made To Order items is approximately 2 weeks.

What if my ring doesn't fit?

We can usually take care of it for a small fee, however it is much preferred that you obtain an accurate ring size using a ring sizer. Those paper template things you can get off the internet are not accurate. Most department store jewelry counters will have a ring sizer. If the size was a mistake on our part, we will replace or resize it free of charge.

**Please note, resizing electroformed rings DOWN (say a 6 to a 5) is more difficult and time consuming than a size UP (7 to 8). When we size a ring down, it will be placed back in the electroforming bath to add more metal to the ring. This can and will change the look of the ring slightly, but this is the only way to to it! When it doubt, er on the side of small.

Can I pick my stone?

This depends on the item. We have several items that have this built into the listing, and you will indeed be able to choose your stone and finish before you purchase. Some item we will give you the option to do so and will reach out with stone selection after the listing has been purchased. The listing will indicate if the item qualifies for stone selection.

I damaged my piece! Can it be repaired?

Due to the nature of electroformed metal, repairs are very difficult and often impossible. Please treat your jewelry with care! We are always striving to make stronger and more durable designs, however no piece is invincible. In a battle between a copper ring and a car door, the car door will win every time.

In the rare cases when repairs are possible, we do charge a fee based on the amount of time required. We do not repair damaged items for free.

I ordered a while ago but my item is taking a long time to arrive. Where is my item?

First did you check the tracking info? If we've mailed it out, then you have as much info as we do. If you haven't received a shipping notification, chances are it's still being made! Remember, these are hand made items and they can take some time to create. Etsy may send notifications regarding the estimated ship date. Please keep in mind this is an estimate only!

International packages are not trackable once the leave the United States. If your international order has left the US, there is quite literally nothing we see (or do) on our end. Please check with your local mail carrier.

The finish on my copper ring has changed. What happened to the finish?

Copper is funny like that. It can be anything from bright pink-orange to black, and it changes as it ages or antiques that, the finish may evolve. We seal all our rings with a special coating to preserve the finish, and while this is a very durable coating, it is not permanent, and will eventually come off (especially on rings worn daily). You may maintain the finish seal by applying your own, or use clear nail polish!

**Please note, if you would like "bare copper" please let us know not to seal your ring! **

What is this green mark on my finger where the ring was?

It's all good! This is just the copper leaving its mark on your skin. It's not a metal allergy and it's completely harmless. In fact, it is just a sign your body is absorbing a trace amount of copper, which has many proven health benefits. Keep in mind, our rings come with the finish sealed (see above) and this will provide a measure of protection against the green finger, however it does not last long if the ring is worn daily. You can use clear nail polish to maintain a seal on the inside of the band if you so desire. Please inquire about our special silver bands and other custom solutions for electroformed rings that won't leave your finger green! Our silver electroformed rings do not turn your finger green.
