The St. Patrick's Collection - Green Glass Slag Ring with Aventurine & 14k Gold in Sterling Silver
This soft green "stone" is actually glass slag, and a by-product of of the smelting process. Set in a smooth sterling silver bezel, surrounded by sterling adornments that have been stamped and sawed out by hand. A 6mm cultured black opal adorns the bottom of the pendant, and a hand sawed clover is at the top. Another clover is in the backside, above the Verdilune hallmark stamp. All pieces have been soldered to a backing of 22 gauge sterling silver sheet. The entire piece is oxidized with liver of sulphur & tumbled with a special medium for 12 hours to bring a soft matte finish to the metals, and also accentuate the highlights and bring dimension to the piece.
You can purchase the pendant alone, or with the addition of an 18" oxidized sterling silver rolo chain.
