Rose Marie Ring - Sterling Silver Freshwater Pearl Ring with Rose Gold Ball

Regular price $268.00
This ring has been a part of my collection for well over a decade. It is my favorite piece of jewelry to make and wear! It is a tried and true favorite with my customers. It features a beautiful natural freshwater pearl that is set within a sterling silver vine bezel. Nestled in the bezel is a 14k rose gold accent ball! This is a wonderfully soft and elegant ring with a great sense of whimsy. Like all of my rings, this was made for comfort and style!

As with all my jewelry, the finished piece was oxidized black and then he raised surface was polished to a brilliant shine. This creates a sense of depth that really shows off the natural beauty of the sterling silver.

This ring can be made in almost any size. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you do not see your size available and you would like to order one or you have questions.

Sterling Silver, Rose Gold & 100% Natural Freshwater Pearl. Because all of the pearls that I use are 100% natural, there is a variation in the pearls nacre. This means that they are all different and have slight variation in the color and iridescence of the pearl. They are all beautiful and unique!

I often oxidize the silver before I complete the piece, creating a contrast between the darkened (oxidized) surface and highly polished areas. I let the recessed parts of the design carry the darkened color and let the raised parts gleam. Avoid using liquid silver cleaner on these pieces because it will remove all the oxidation. Rather, use a dry silver polishing cloth to restore the sparkle and store your pieces in a zip lock bag to keep them shiny and bright.

If your jewelry needs a major cleaning , follow these instructions using Wright's Brass Polish (can be purchased online or at your local hardware store). The reason I use the brass polish and not the silver polish is because the liquid silver polish takes off the nice oxidation I put on my pieces. The brass polish just takes off the grime. It's amazing!

You will need:

Pyrex dish
clean sponge
baby toothbrush

Place your jewelry in a Pyrex dish, cover with the Wright's Brass Polish. 
Cut a small piece of a clean sponge, dampen it, dip it in the bowl then dab all over your jewelry. You don't want to rub it just dab. 
Try and get in all the recessed areas.

Because my jewelry has so much form, rinse really well under running water. You don't want the cleaner to dry on the jewelry or it will dry as a white powder. I use a baby toothbrush to gently get in the little hard to reach places while running it under the tap.

If a piece of yours has a stone in it, you will notice I always drill a hole under the stone. This allows the light to shine through and provides a place for moisture to escape. If the brass cleaner gets into that hole and dries, you may want to use a water pick to get it out. Better yet, avoid that by putting a little piece of scotch tape over the hole, take it off after rinsing, then rinse some more. 

This brass cleaner works like magic on all sterling silver, but naturally, I only guarantee my own.
