Howls Calcifer Fire Band in Antique Bronze with Birthstone
This is a handmade gemstone flower ring made in antique bronze based on Howl's Calcifer fire band is perfect for any fan of the movie! The raised flower patterns on the side are spaced similarly to in the movie, though depending on the size required it can affect the pattern a bit. Do note I do have more photos of the different stones(Etsy has a limit on listing photos!), so if you need to see some, please let me know.
The original was custom requested by a cosplayer I met at Anime Next who wanted it for his Howl's cosplay. Howl's Ring is a magical object that appears in the movie adaptation of Howl's Moving Castle. It holds a connection to Howl's heart within Calcifer. Calling out to Calcifer causes the small stone on it to emit a beam of light pointing in his direction.

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.
