Our Venice Ring is adorned with viti, the Italian word for "vine". The Venice Ring is presented to you in generous amounts of sterling silver created with an electroform process giving it a beautiful puffy and shiny look without the added weight; measuring approximately 15mm at the widest point in front and tapering down to 5mm in the back for a comfortable fit. We've captured the beauty of an emerging vine and all things made new in our Venice Ring.
*Due to the wide band nature of this ring, it will feel about 1/2 size smaller. For example, a size 7 will feel like a 6.5 although it measures 7 on the ring stick. Please take this into consideration when ordering.
Metal: .925 Sterling Silver
Finish: High Polish
Part of the appeal of handcrafted sterling silver jewelry includes slight variations and irregularities in silversmith work. These variations are not to be considered defects, but rather the silversmiths signature. No two are exactly alike.
*You'll notice three small areas (as shown in photo) in the band which are purposely created in the electroform process and are not to be considered defects.
What is electroforming?
Electroforming is a highly specialized process of metal part fabrication using electrodeposition in a plating bath over a base form. Electroforming is the formation of a layer of sterling silver over a mold. This method allows the creation of beautifully designed sterling silver earrings, rings, bangles and necklaces with stunning detail in any shape or size without the heavy weight and cost that is typical to conventional solid sterling silver.
The electroforming process is when the mold is put into a tub of charged sterling silver. Over a 10-12 hour process, the sterling electrically forms (i.e. electroform) itself to the mold. Then the piece is removed and handcrafted to include more detail, oxidation is also done to create depth.
Electroformed sterling silver jewelry can be identified by being light in weight, bulky looking, and if you look very closely you'll see tiny holes left so the mold can be removed after the design has been processed.
I have been "eyeing" this ring for quite sometime. It come out in my size (10) once and sold out before I could decide to purchase. When it come out in my size again, I JUMPED on it !! A birthday present to myself. IT IS ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL !!! More beautiful than the photo. Very substantial !! Very comfortable. I will wear it EVERYDAY !!!
Please make this ring in larger sizes!!!!
Another gorgeous piece!! So many compliments the first time I wore it. Large without being gaudy...perfect on the size. Ready for my next purchase!!!
Services is great
NOTE FROM ID: Be sure to note that this ring states to size up one size. This may be the reason you find it tight. Thank you for your review and for being our customer! DL
I was disappointed in the light weight of this piece but as time goes on there are literally drill holes on the back of the ring front and on the back of the band! WTH? Wish I could post the photos.
Note from ID: Please see the description and photos. This ring is made with an electroform process. Thus the reason for the holes (as you can see in the photos we posted).
I love this ring, and it is certainly eye-catching and looks high end. Beautiful details. I would love it much more in solid silver, not electroform. That is the only thing that lessens this in quality. Pure silver would still be affordable and leave behind a substantial piece of jewelry for daughters and nieces.
Love my ring!!
Just Concerned that moisture or water will get in the holes and cause mold to grow .
It’s hollow so not sure how it’ll hold up.
It’s a beautiful ring I will be ordering again thanks
The ring is so beautiful I hope it lasts long l am only saying this because the ring is so light it’s not as heavy as my other sliver ring but it is very beautiful and I will order again
