An Hierloom Ring in every sense of the word. A Vintage well-loved Mother of Pearl Button, in fine and sterling silver. A bottomless bezel offers a view and feel of this vintage button; (which has signs of wear on its underside from its previous life).
Completed by a flanking of gold filled tubes on the sides to complete the symmetry of the pattern. Was this on a young woman’s hand-knit sweater some 100 years ago? Mother of Pearl buttons became fashionable in the 17th century, but peaked in popularity in the 1800’s. This piece pays homage to another time in our history.
This is handmade and one of a kind. I have created this in an eco-friendly manner — from hand with no harsh jewelers chemicals and no power tools. The old fashioned way. Thus, it has taken me a considerable amount of time compared to using other modern jewelry techniques. Therefore, file marks, as well as asymmetries are all part of the hand-fashioned process.
All of the silver in this ring has been recycled. The ring band is about 5mm in diameter, and the circumference of the face is about 0.9 inches in diameter.
