Celtic Heart Shield Ring shown above with a sterling silver 7mm wide band with 15K yellow gold black glass enameled celtic knots and set with a 1/3ct purple Sapphire is
$1185 plus the cost of the stone.
~The interweaving lines of the celtic knots and the shield setting
symbolize eternal love and protection~.
The hand hammered shield setting is smooth, low profile, and incredibly durable.
Other metals and stones available, please click on the photos below to see some of the different styles I can do in either 15K or 18K yellow, white, or rose golds.
|The color that you see in the background of my rings is a true fired glass enamel in a technique called concave champleve. The glass is fused to the metal at 1500º fahrenheit and is protected by being below the surface of the metal. It is by far the most durable way to color the background. I believe it really brings out the knot work and has the added benefit of helping keep the knot from filling up with dirt or the lines from being closed off from years of wear. Enameling is a beautiful artform that has been done for thousands of years.||Shani and I are strongly committed to the environment. As a family business we practice eco-friendly buying, fabrication, and in house recycling techniques. We use recycled gold and silver, fair trade gems, and certified conflict free diamonds as well as reusing a customer's own stones and metals for even less impact on the environment. We strive to create our jewelry with honor and respect for the precious earth we work with and live in.
Sincerely, Chris & Shani Christenson
~ I handcraft my rings to order, custom made for each person and not stamped out or massed produced. I do every step of the creation from hand fabrication to casting in my own 15K or 18K gold alloys and finish with a fired glass enamel and hand hammered setting. I love what I do and enjoy putting positive energy into every piece of jewelry art that I make. I build my rings to last for generations and stand behind my work. I sign each one with pride and bless them with my favorite feather. If you are interested in placing an order or if you have any questions about having a custom ring made please email us or give us a call at our gallery. 707-937-1223.
