This one-of-a-kind statement ring is made of rare Gem Silica - prong set in Black Rhodium-washed Sterling with bezel-set Mandarine Sapphire and 18K Gold accents.
The Rhodium wash is meant to wear like a denim jacket - the high points will wear to 'white' Silver with wear & the low points will stay dark - allowing it to only get richer, sexier, and cooler, with age - like the wearer! ;)
Gem silica is a bluish-green to greenish-blue variety of chalcedony that receives its vivid color from the presence of copper. It is often known as "chrysocolla chalcedony" or "gem silica chrysocolla."
Gem silica is the most valuable variety of chalcedony, with quality cut gemstones selling for over $100 per carat. The best specimens have a pleasing blue color with intense saturation, a uniform translucence, and a lack of inclusions.
Even though gem silica is one of the most beautiful blue gemstones, most people have never heard of it. That is because it is a very rare gem. It is seldom seen in jewelry and is used mainly by a small number of high-end jewelry designers.
