5K Yellow Gold and Lapis, Cuttlefish Cast Ring, US Size 5-Ready to Ship


This is a ring I made back in 2014. I used the ancient technique of cuttlefish casting to get an original, had a mold made, and created 2 additional rings. This one is cast in solid 5k yellow gold and set with a 6mm round, genuine blue lapis lazuli bullet cabochon. It is one of a kind.

The ring is US size 5. The band is approximately 3mm wide with an approximate depth of 2.2mm. It weighs 2.93 grams (.10 oz). The lapis bullet measures approximately 6.3mm tall.

In 2014 I decided to start having a small variety of my pieces cast in 5k.
I chose to make some of my prototypes in 5k and other pieces so that people could more easily afford and enjoy wearing my gold rings, earrings, and bracelets. I found it to be a nice-looking alternative to the more expensive higher karats. 5k pieces retain their luster, they are sturdy and as they are solid there is no coating to wear off. However, in some cases, 5k gold may darken over time and sulfurous "hard" water can cause quicker /darker oxidation. This can usually be remedied by rubbing the piece with a jewelers cloth. The 5k gold alloy contains approximately 20.85 % pure gold. It also contains silver, copper & zinc.
