This handmade Twig ring is made in Sterling silver with a triangular cut Carnelian gem with very nice sparkly facets on the top of the stone,(bezel set).
The setting has 3 hearts cut out from the back (see images) as an extra little secret message for the owner. (symbolizing 3 kids, 3 loved ones or your lucky number)
Carnelian has been used in decorative arts dates to approximately 1800 BC. Carnelian was used widely during Roman times to make engraved gems for signet or seal rings for imprinting a seal with wax on correspondence or other important documents.
Van Wel uses patina to blacken the twigs to give it more depth and texture.
