Handcrafted by South African artisans, this brass ring has two layers of crossing brass pieces. The ring is 1.5 inches tall by 1 inch wide. Adjustable with a diameter of 0.75 of an inch. The feathering on the brass is achieved by applying high heat rather than paints or dyes. The rings are free from lead & nickel or any other allergy producing substances. Sprayed with a clear lacquer, the piece requires only a soft cloth for polishing. Once the lacquer wears off, which can take several years depending on the amount of wear, a household metal polish can be used.
