This ring features contrasting textures; Two bands of smooth sterling silver surround a reticulated silver center. It is currently a size 6 and can be resized upon purchase.

Sterling silver is an alloy of silver (92.5%) and copper (7.5%). Reticulation silver is normally an alloy of 80% silver and 20% copper. To create the reticulated surface, the metal is repeatedly heated and quenched and cleaned. During this process the copper eventually becomes concentrated at the core of the metal, surrounded by a skin of pure silver (99.999). Because copper has a higher melting temperature than silver, when the metal is torched with a very hot flame, the copper core can be brought to a melting point, creating a liquid contained within a silver skin. The path and angle of the flame affects the textures created and the resulting patterns resemble expansive mountain ranges. 
No two pieces of reticulation are the same and even within the same piece, a pattern can be very irregular and will never have a true repeat. Like most goldsmithing techniques, reticulation takes lots of practice.
