1950s Style Wedding Band in Sterling Silver or Antique Bronze
This handmade ring is a wedding set design from the 1950s that I remade in .925 sterling silver and antique bronze in my workshop. The top of the rings are about a 1/4 of an inch wide with a tapered band at the bottom of the design 1.25mm thick.
I offer engraving service in my Chains & Engraving section in my shop. I can also make them in gold, just let me know what carat and size you may need and I will give you an estimate.
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.
