Handmade vintage Swarovski crystal ring in 14k Gold Fill.
This handmade ring features a beautiful Vintage Swarovski Starlight AB Crystal. Starlight AB is very similar to Black Diamond AB - a oldish grey crystal with a purple mirror finish, and a real devil of a stone to photograph. The jewelry quality stone setting is Gold plated, and the balance of the ring is 14K GF wire and beads. The ring shown is in 14K GF US size 6 1/2
‼️ PLEASE be sure of your ring size before ordering - I guarantee your ring will be the size you order, they cannot be resized, or simply exchanged or returned. If you decide/discover that you ordered the wrong ring size - I can remake the ring. The minimum cost is $50.00 to cover loss of materials (the ring has to be completely cut apart) and labor. Please contact me for details.
►14K Gold Filled is a federally regulated amount of 14K gold (5%) rolled on to a base metal, usually brass. It is the next best thing to solid 14K gold. It has no nickel in it and is considered hypoallergenic. It will not tarnish or discolor your skin. The finish will last one to five years under heavy wear (like a ring - though I have lots of rings and bracelets that are still great looking after 20 years) and a lifetime under occasional wear (like an ear cuff or earring).
A small note about foil-backed stones: Swarovski's sew-ons are excellent quality; I have at least 3 I rarely take off. However, there are chemicals and some oils and lotions that can eat at the foil on the back of the crystal. If in doubt, whether something will hurt the foil, take the ring off.
Thank you for stopping by - hope to see you again soon. Bobbi
❤️”This beautiful crystal was bought with a couple of ring making tutorials and it arrived very quickly. I can't believe I actualy made this ring! Bobbi's Marcella tutorial was exceptionally well written with pictures for every tiny step. The tips and hints kept me out of trouble and taught me new skills. Thanks to the suggested as-you-work checks, the ring is the perfect size! Another excellent tutorial from Bobbi.”
