Fox Ring in Sterling Silver or Antique Bronze
This is a handmade silver fox ring I created recently per request. Available in either .925 sterling silver or antique bronze, the ring is 1cm wide at the top, 4mm high, and the band is 6mm wide and 1.75mm thick. So if you love foxes, this will be perfect ring to show your passion! Also there is space in the band to engrave a name or date, and you can order the option in my engraving section. I also can make this in larger sizes upon request as needed. I can also offer the option to set gemstones in the eyes, just message me for price options.
I carved this and may other pieces in green jewellers wax, along with a few other pieces I made for pet lovers. Hope to at one point make them with gemstones upon request! The original design was made as a wedding ring set with 2 fox heads facing each other, but I had promised never to sell that particular design again. So I made a modified ring based on the first one.
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.
