What is Argentium Silver

Argentium Silver is essentially a modern, upgraded version of sterling silver, which was “invented” in the 1300s by King Edward the first. Although the history behind this alloy is rich and fascinating, in my experience sterling silver leaves something to be desired in terms of appearance and durability. More info on the properties of Argentium Silver here.

Will your rings turn my finger green?

No they won’t. This occurs when rings are made of low quality materials and plated to look like silver. Copper, for example, will produce the green finger effect. Argentium silver is the highest quality silver alloy available, so it won’t have this effect.

All FAQs.

SUSTAINABILITY

Sustainable Metal Sourcing:

I use Argentium silver, a 100% sustainably sourced and recycled metal produced by the Argentium Company, ensuring ethical and environmentally friendly practices. 

Certified Suppliers:

Palloys, the only Australian casting company certified by LBMA, OECD, and World Gold Council, supplies metals that comply with strict ethical standards, including the RJC certification for responsible jewelry practices.

Australian Labor and Manufacturing:

I use exclusively Australian labor and manufacturing for all aspects of production, maintaining slavery-free supply chains and supporting the local economy, with the exception of FSC-certified packaging from Denmark.

I offer change of mind returns for store credit. If your piece has any quirks you think shouldn’t be there, let me know and send me a some photos. If it looks like a workmanship problem I’ll issue an immediate full refund or replacement upon return postage. 

Bought the wrong size? The course of action depends on whether the ring is too small or too large. If it's too small, just send it back and I'll size it up for free. If it's too large, I'll have to charge you a $60 resizing fee, since I'll need to cut the ring open, remove metal, and solder it back together. This is fairly time consuming, hence the fee.

About the piece.

The 2024 Valentines exclusive, sold from the 1st ’til the 31st of February 2024.

Thorns is a rounded band engraved with a rose, thorns, barbed wire, and the year 2024 in roman numerals. The roman numerals can be customized with your choice of characters, for example a date in DD/MM/YY form or a pair of initials. The rose, thorns, and barbed wire blend seamlessly as they wrap around the band, reaching to the other side of the MMXXIV engraving. As with all of my band designs, this affords a particular versatility with how you choose to wear it. The band can be spun around the finger to display the year as the primary design element, with the rose and the thorns flanking the main engraving on either side. Alternatively, you can choose to show just the barbed wire and thorns, or the rose by itself.

With Thorns I attempted to stray from the simplistic and cliché symbolism of other Valentine’s rings to incorporate a more holistic message. While the rose represents the more standard Valentine’s themes, the barbed wire and thorns provide a darker balancing force. These elements are inextricably linked through the stem as they bend and wrap around each other. 

Thorns is forged from 940 Argentium silver using techniques dating back over 6,000 years. Each piece is made to order and handcrafted by me. The ring comes with a wax sealed certificate of authenticity so you know it’s the real deal. 

Expect your Thorns to arrive within 1-2 weeks after placing your order, crafted in superior quality 940 Argentium Silver.

Orders placed before the 3rd of February will be delivered in time for Valentine’s Day.
