Knotwork Pentacle Ring in Sterling Silver or Antique Bronze
A beautiful twist to the pentacle ring design, this is a handmade pentacle ring that is available in .925 sterling silver or antique bronze. The top is 1.8 cm wide. 0.5cm high and the band is 5mm wide and is 1.2mm thick. The top has knotwork surrounding the star in the center of the ring top. I can make this ring in any size, and is a good size for both men and women for everyday wear.
The pentacle meaning can be seen as many different things, but one commonality is that the pentacle is a symbol that represents Earth, Air, Fire, Water at each of its five points and the Spirit as the center. These are often worn by people of pagan faiths such as Wicca and other communities.
Sterling silver is an alloy of silver containing 92.5% by weight of silver and 7.5% by weight of copper. The sterling silver standard has a minimum millesimal fineness of 925.
Bronze is an alloy that consists of a mixture of approximately 90% copper and 10% tin. Producing bronze is a less toxic process than producing brass as brass is a combination of copper and zinc, and the manufacturing process often produces zinc oxide which is toxic.
Because bronze contains copper, it can turn your skin green whether you have an allergy or not. Bronze and copper turn your skin green because when the copper reacts with your sweat and the acids from your skin, it produces copper chloride. Copper chloride is a green substance that then rubs off on your skin. If you are prone to sweating, your bronze jewelry will definitely turn your skin green. This chemical reaction can also be prevented by painting any part of the jewelry that comes in contact with your skin with clear nail polish or clear acrylic enamel.
