22k Hoop Ring

21 Jun

When I ordered the 22k for the custom Jade Queen’s Ring, I got a bit extra to play with.  I’m really glad I did! 

22k is quite different to work with than 14k, and I’ll tell you about that when I write about the custom ring.  For now?  I’ll show you this!  The 22k Hoop Ring. 

I’ve  been playing with this design in my head for some time, and it was a good match for the 22k.   An open, lighter-looking piece, it’s able to blend with other karats you might be wearing because it isn’t a heavy swath of contrasting darker gold.  Burnished and hand rubbed to a soft shine, and work-hardened and heat-soaked for sturdiness.  I’ll have this listed tomorrow.

We definitely need a bit more 22k around here.

    AH it’s gorgeous!! The difference between the intensity of the increasingly pure gold is amazing.
