Beautiful Solid handcarved gold plated Sterling Silver ring. This ring was primarily carved in wax and then the lost wax process or as we called it in French cire-perdue comes into play. This ring is gold vermeil. The lost wax process is a method of metal casting in which a molten metal is poured into a mould, that has been created by a wax model. Once the mold is made, the wax model is melted and drained away. A hollow core can be effected by the introduction of a heat-proof core that prevents the molten metal from totally filling the mold. The lost-wax method dates from the 3rd millennium bc and has sustained few changes since then. After the molding procedure, filing and polishing this ring was covered in gold. (Vermeil process) This ring is brand new. (Not from ancient Greece.) All my pieces are unique and when it comes to rings, you want to know the finger size, if it is for the ring finger, pointer, thumb, middle or the pinky, left or right or even for a toe. In most cases rings can be adapted and resized.
