The Leland Blue Ring Collection in Sterling Silver
What is this amazing stone named "Leland Blue"? It's actually not a natural stone at all, it is actually slag – a waste product from the smelting process used in the late 1800s by the Leland Lake Superior Iron Company.

Stone cutters work with this material like they would gemstones. There are so many variances in colors and patterns, but I choose these light blue specimens for their cloud-like inclusions. One of the stones, shaped like a shark fin, is a deep teal. There is pocking snd even bubble holes, inherent to this material. It's safe to say, you'll likely never see anyone else wearing a ring like these.
Each ring is hand fabricated in sterling silver, oxidized in liver of sulphur and then polished to bring out highlights and add dimension.
There are 5 designs to choose from:
#1: Triangular shape with thick braided band size 8.75
#2: Arch shape w/ 2 sterling balls grouped together and textured flat band, size 7.75
#3: Arch shape w/ sterling balls on either side and textured flat band, size 8.5
#4: Rectangles shape with double band size 6.75
#5: Large teal shark fin with double beaded band size 7.75
