Also available in white gold. Please contact me if you would like this option.

Listing is for 1 braid ring only.

A NOTE ABOUT SIZING:
The braid rings are MUCH easier to size up than they are to size down. To size up, I simply anneal the metal and stretch it ever so slightly on a mandrel which does not cause any damage to the pattern. In order to size down, the ring must be cut and re-soldered which can cause damage to the braid pattern and is significantly more complicated.
If you are not sure of your correct size, please see the 5th picture in my shop's "about" section for an illustration of my favorite way to accurately determine your correct size:

A NOTE ABOUT 5K GOLD:

In 2014 I decided to start having a small variety of my pieces cast in 5k.
I chose to do this so that people could more easily afford and enjoy wearing my gold rings, earrings and bracelets . I find it to be a nice looking alternative to the more expensive higher karats. I wear a 5k ring on my own hand and several 5k bracelets all the time. They 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 or by cleaning in an ultrasonic cleaner.

The 5k gold alloy contains approximately 20.85 % pure gold. It also contains silver, copper & zinc. Please understand that 5k is difficult to test on electronic gold testers and most standard jewelers/ jewelry shops do not have equipment to test karats under 10k. If you need proof of the karat of your 5k gold piece for any reason, please contact me and I can send you an X-ray scan certificate that shows the percentages of metals in the alloy from my caster.
