Soft Purple Enamel On Copper Ring With Snail Design
This true authentic piece of jewelry is made with the traditional enamelling technique. What I love about it is that is looks liquid on top of the copper base even though it is not.
A copper wire is bent into a snail pattern which is then glued to the the arched shape metal base. The compartments are filled with soft purple enamel and then fired at a high temperature. An authentic pattern is painted within the enamel with a lighter shade , making the pattern even more interesting.
The decoration is actually a part of the ring band base that coils around your finger, making it seem airy and effortless. It somehow reminds me of the illustrations from a folklore fairy tale book.
The ends of the ring are not fused together which means that the size of the ring is adjustable from small to large size!
How to care for this ring
This beauty is made of enamel on copper. Over a couple of years, the beautiful reddish copper can turn dark, kind of black and it can also turnish. To clean it, apply some ketchup (yes, you read it correctly, ketchup!) on a cloth and wipe the jewel with it.
It should not need any maintanance if you follow the golden rules of jewelry-keeping below.
- this jewel is fragile
- please take off your ring before you wash your hands
- never take a bath/shower with your jewelry on because moist is harmful even to noble metals
- when you take it off, keep your jewelry in the darkest, driest area of your home to maintain its original beauty for a long time
