Rings by Marianne Anderson Handmade to order in your size by Marianne, this stunning oxidised silver ring features a 14mm round white mabe pearl wrapped in 18ct yellow gold. Detailed and sophisticated with an intricate surface texture on the band combined with the unique luster of the pearl makes this a really special piece. Each piece is thoughtfully made in small batches or as one-off pieces by me in my studio in Glasgow. I appreciate good craftsmanship and strive to achieve the highest standards every day in my work. Features Primary Material : oxidised silver Other Materials : 18ct gold and pearl One of a Kind : No Metal : 18ct gold and sterling silver Hallmarked : Yes Cleaning Instructions About Oxidised Silver: Marianne’s jewellery is oxidised to dark black with a rich luster. Oxidisation is not a permanent surface treatment and can wear off. The oxidisation on raised patterned areas is prone to burnishing off over time, especially in the case of ring shanks. This is often a positive feature as it highlights the detail of the pattern. Items such as earrings and brooches that sit static will maintain their black finish as long as they are cared for. Store your oxidised jewellery separately to your other jewellery in your jewellery box to avoid it rubbing against any sharp surfaces that may gradually scratch off the oxidisation. Marianne is happy to re-oxidise any pieces purchased from her without charge, however postal charges will be payable by the customer. Cleaning your jewellery: Oxidised silver requires virtually no cleaning. To remove dirt from intricate patterned areas use a soft brush either dry or with soapy water. Avoid hard brushes or any abrasives as they will scratch the surface and remove the patina. Do not immerse oxidised areas in any chemicals such as jewellery cleaning solutions as this will remove the oxidisation. To clean gold areas use a soft polishing cloth that is suitable for use with gold alloys.
