Beautifying objects with metal leaf dates back to ancient times with a style characteristic of Byzantine and Renaissance art. Statues, plaques and panels were carved from hardwood, then embellished with gold leaf.
Using old world gilding techniques, the metal leaf comes in a myriad of spectacular colors and is hand pressed onto each ring. The background of each ring has been hand painted in several colors and the final piece is sealed with a protective jeweler's resin for long-lasting wear. Each ring is one-of-a-kind and will differ slightly from the photographs.
Antique gold plated brass. Measurements: 18 x 13mm oval, adjustable.
Each piece is handmade. Please allow 7-10 business days for production. In-stock items will ship immediately.
