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.
Whatever the star symbol means to you, these are lovely, easy to wear, everyday rings. They look great on their own and also work well as part of a stack.
Cast in yellow or white 5 karat gold each ring is set with a 1-1.2 mm black or white diamond in the center of a small blackened incised star (Star measures approx. 3.5mm x 3mm). They are finished with a satin polish which over time with wear will burnish into a rubbed glow. Available in US sizes 3.5- 7. If you need a different size please contact me.
The color combinations listed in the options are as follows:
Yellow with black- yellow gold with black diamond in center of little black star.
Yellow with white- yellow gold with white diamond in center of little black star.
White with black- white gold with black diamond in center of little black star.
White with white- white gold with white diamond in center of little black star.
LISTING IS FOR 1 LITTLE STAR RING ONLY.
Star power-Bowie Forever!
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.
