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.
This ring was my first and only purchase from Inspiranza. It is beautiful, well made and durable, but is very lightweight and does not feel like Sterling silver. I kept it and it is still gorgeous! Hesitant to buy more rings because i like my sterling silver rings to be heavy ... still love this one, though, just wish it felt more like silver.
Note from ID: this ring is made with an Electro-Form Process that is explained on one of the photos and the details. This is a lighter process that gives the ring a shiny puffy large look for less cost. This is the only ring in our collection that uses this process. Thank you for the review on Venice!
It’s even prettier than the photo. Pleasantly surprised...fits perfect! Very smooth and comfortable too!
The ring does run nearly one size smaller! Had wanted to wear on middle finger but it only fits my ring finger which is too bad but I LOVE the ring!
As soon as I saw this ring I knew I had to have it and I am here to tell you that it looks even better in person! All of their rings do and I feel that I can say that, because I own 5 of them! This particular ring feels good on the hand, it fits true to size and it gets compliments! I am happy!
I really don't like the ring, it looks cheap to me. I would like to return it.
I did not know what the expect when I was making the purchase of this ring, because I am always a little hesitant about purchasing items on line, but this ring is simply gorgeous! I am very pleased with my purchase!
I have had my eye on this ring for some time but was scared to order, not knowing if it would feel bulky on my finger. I am so very pleased with it. It has a very smooth fit and is even prettier than I imagined. I have had so many compliments on it.
Not as heavy as I expected but it is good quality - pretty design and looks expensive
When I received this ring I was excited until I opened it and it felt cheap like it's made out of tin. That was the only thing that I have not liked since I've been ordering from u.
