Red Rosarita Heart Rings in Sterling Silver
2 new, Beautiful, chunky Red Rosarita heart rings. I've set the hearts in smooth sterling bezels on sterling silver sheet. Both have wide, textured ring bands.
#1 sits on the mandrel at a size 8
#2 sits on the mandrel at a size 9
#9 is discounted due to a misalignment of the texture during pressing in the hydraulic press.
What is Rosarita?
Rosarita is a by-product of gold smelting. Smelting gold is the process of extracting gold from an ore it is combined with. Essentially, when an ore that is gold-bearing gets heated to high temperatures, gold sinks down to the bottom and the non-metals solidify into boulders of red and orange. Red being Rosarita.
