Ancient Chinese Chop Design Ring, Sterling Silver, Made to Order
This unique handmade ring has a large, square Chinese character design. The ancient characters come from an ancient Chinese chop (signature stamp). The ring pictured is made of fine silver (.999 or 99.9% silver). I can also make it in sterling silver (.925 silver). This stunning ring is sure to be noticed. If you like an Asian look, this will be a great addition to your jewelry collection. The ancient chop is something that I picked up on the antique street when I lived in Shanghai. The chop I have probably isn't antique but actually a reproduction of an ancient chop. Even so, since the ring is my own design, it is unique. I individually hand make each ring. As a result, there could be slight variations in each one. The chop design will be the same though. This ring must be ordered because it will be made to size. Please specify size with order and allow approximately 3-4 weeks for delivery. Metal clay is made of particles of metal, usually silver, that is mixed with an organic binder. After I make a piece it is thoroughly dried and sanded. Then fired in my kiln at anywhere from 1100-1600 degrees Fahrenheit. This burns out all the organic material and leaves only the metal. The ring shown is either a size 6 or 7. Making the ring in a larger or smaller size will slightly change the look of the ring because, even though the band size will change, the size of the top portion will not change. I will assume you want it in sterling silver (.925) unless you specify that you want fine (.999) silver. Fine silver doesn't tarnish as bad, but sterling is stronger.
