Shades of Blue & Green Surfite Ring Size 6.5
Part of a larger collection, this colorful ring contains a multi-colored "stone" called Surfite, which is actually not a stone at all. Surfite is layered resin built up from the process of glassing surfboards. Google "surfite stone", and then for extra fun, google fordite, which is similar, but is made of layers of paint that has built up during the process of painting cars.
The stones in this collection are sunny and happy, and have hues of royal blue, turquoise blue, juicy orange, bright yellow, etc. This particular stone is predominantly royal blue with pools of turquoise blue and sea green. Set in a smooth bezel, & soldered to 2 layers of 22 gauge sterling silver sheet. The bottom sheet layer has been textured to add visual interest. Dimensions of the ring's face are 1 3/8" by 5/8". Ring size is 6.5 US. The entire piece is oxidized with liver of sulphur to give depth and then buffed to bring out highlights.
