Ring - SMELTING MOMENTS - Sterling Silver

share

Do you have little bits of sentimental jewellery in the bottom of the jewel box; perhaps no longer worn because it's broken or too small, but it's still cherished, tells a story and represents precious moments in life?

Your sterling silver pieces can be smelted into a stunning nugget ring to continue telling the story in a unique and distinctive way. Melding the memories and moments into a single piece to wear or pass on to someone you love.

Your nugget will be hand-crafted into a ring by a talented Australian artisan jeweller. No two nuggets will be the same as each will be skilfully created to retain organic features, lumps, bumps and little 'road-maps' unique to your ring and the stories it has to tell.

Upon ordering you will be sent a Reply Paid Packaging Kit with instructions to safely send your sterling silver to Oh My Giddy Aunt.


OTHER FAQs

HOW MUCH SILVER DO I NEED TO MAKE A SMELTING MOMENT NUGGET?
The size of the nugget will be determined by the amount of silver you send. We will contact you if there is too much or not enough and provide you with options. Unused metal will be returned to you with your finished nugget.

CAN I SEND OTHER METAL?
Metal must be sterling silver. If you are not sure, or have other metal you would like to use, please contact us first.

IF I AM PROVIDING THE METAL WHY IS THERE A CHARGE?
As you can imagine there is much more work involved in melting down old pieces of silver and creating a nugget than simply using new silver. Charges are for the skilled, time-intensive work required to smelt moments into a beautiful new piece of custom-made jewellery individually made just for you.

DIMENSIONS
The size of the nugget will depend on the amount of sterling silver you provide and will weigh roughly the same; bearing in mind there will be some shrinkage during the process.
As an approximate guide
15 grams creates a 23 x 19 x 5.5 mm nugget
10 grams creates a 20 x 16 x5.5mm nugget
5 grams creates a 12 x 12mm nugget
(Please note, larger nuggets may be more oval than round)

Rings are soldered to a 4mm wide, sturdy sterling silver band that can also be hand-engraved inside.

Pendants will be presented on black cord, but if you would prefer your pendant on a chain or keyring please order separately.

The back of the nugget can be hand-engraved with a name, date or few words. Please order engraving separately.
