A special gold and vesuvianite ring with a twist and open spiral design.
It's adjustable and perfect as a gift if you're not quite sure of the size you need.
The shank is twisted from one wire and in the loop at the end is nestled a vesuvianite rondelle.
Vesuvianite has a wonderfully rich green colour and complements the gold beautifully.
The wire ends are shaped into spirals. Both twists and spirals are classic and has been used since Celtic times in jewellery.
I made it with Gold filled wire, that's gold bonded to a brass core, the gold is much thicker than plate and won't wear off. The 14 karat gold is a glorious sunny colour.
The ring has a medieval look and makes a strong monochromatic statement. I have twisted and forged by hand and it shows in the rustic irregularities. It gives the ring character and makes everyone of them unique.
The ring is adjustable and the open design allows you to just pull or squeeze gently until the ring is comfortable on your finger. In the photos the ring is set to a size 6 (US) or M (UK).
You should still choose a general size to get the best look of the ring.
