Custom Design Thumb Ring
This is a funky cuff ring which has been shaped by hand. The metal used is aluminium which is a fabulous metal. This is a perfectly unisex piece of jewellery & comes in two standard sizes that can be adjusted to fit. Although adjustable please read the information below on sizing. These make lovely gifts & make fab thumb rings. The ring in the image has been hand stamped with a camera however you are free to choose from the drop down what you would like on yours.
**Size - the entire length of this ring is EITHER 5 or 6 cm - please select from the drop down. To size your ring measure around your finger or thumb. There is room for a little adjustment. The width of the ring is 6mm & the thickness approx 1.5mm.
**This listing is for ONE ring.
**PLEASE, please, please measure before ordering! I cannot refund for items that do not fit.
☆Cuff rings are NOT soldered so there is a gap, this will vary in size depending on the size of your fingers. As with all jewellery remove when doing any activity where the item might snag or catch.
☆Frequent bending will result in the metal snapping, like any metal. Please adjust to fit & then refrain from opening/closing & simply place on & off the finger like a normal ring.
☆Please note, if you choose a ring that has been hand stamped the blackening enamel will wear away over time, this is perfectly normal & can easily be rectified using a slim permanent marker/Sharpie. Try & avoid prolonged use in water (or preferably avoid completely)
❤ What is hand stamping?
Hand stamping is a fabulous way of making an imprint onto metal. It works completely by hand where metal stamps are held & boshed with a hammer, to leave an imprint. Because hand stamping uses no machinery at all, there may be little variations in depth to the imprints. A perfectly straight line is something that hand stampers worldwide scratch their heads in wonder at. The beauty of hand stamping is the imperfect perfectness of it & the fact that you really can have whatever your heart desires stamped onto a piece that you can treasure forever ❤
❤ Why aluminium?
Aluminium is a wonderfully lightweight metal. It has the beauty of any other metal but it comes with bonus points; it is a fraction of the cost, beautifully lightweight & it is hypoallergenic so perfect if other metals make you a bit on the irritated side. Unlike silver, copper & brass; aluminium will not tarnish! Look after it as recommended & aluminium will last a lifetime.
❤ Silver, copper & brass - all of these metals will tarnish at some stage. Brass & copper quicker. You can easily remedy this by following my care instructions. All of these metals can, on occasion, turn the skin a little green where the jewellery sits. This, especially with copper & silver, is nothing to do with the jewellery but your skins tolerance to the metal. Silver does contain traces of copper.
