Little Star Ring, 5 k Yellow with White Diamond-Ready to Ship


Sorry, this item has sold.

Ah the 5 pointed star! Such an ancient symbol. Whether representing the Golden Ratio, excellence, authority, power or mystical realms, the star is ubiquitous.

I first conceived of this little ring after the death of the incomparable genius David Bowie. Like many of my peers, I spent my teenage (and adult) years listening to his music and taking great inspiration and comfort from this incredible man and his work. Black Star his goodbye opus was in my head and the Black Star symbol was everywhere. I made the first Little Black Star ring as sort of a memorial ring to make myself feel better about his being gone.

As time passed I decided to make more of them. Now I think of these rings less as symbols of mourning and more as symbols of remembrance, eternity, light in darkness, balance and perfection.

Cast in 5 karat yellow gold, this ring is set with a 1.1 mm white diamond in the center of a small blackened incised star (Star measures approx. 3.5mm x 3mm). It is finished with a satin polish which over time with wear will burnish into a rubbed glow. This 5k ring was made as a prototype and there is only 1. It is US size 6.5.

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.
