Etched with just a simple line into the ring, the Teton Band is custom made and ships in about 1-3 weeks. The artist starts with raw brass and we etch Tetons into the brass using our acid free etching process. This ring is available in seven whole sizes and two finishes: Matte Silver and Antique Matte Brass.
Matte Silver Finish:
After etching and finishing, the ring is electroplated with 500 mils of sterling silver, a slight oxidation and a protective finish. Most silver plate is only 10 to 20 mils thick, making this at least 25 times thicker! This process is a nickel free process. The result is a gorgeous matte super durable silver finish. Take care of your piece just like any other silver jewelry you have. Keep it a cool dry airtight box, bag or the packaging it comes with. You can use a silver polishing cloth or sterling silver cleaner but all your really need is a clean soft cloth. LEAD-FREE , NICKEL-FREE. CADMIUM-FREE
Antique Matte Brass Finish
After the piece is etched, we darken it with a brown black oxidizer but then remove almost all of it, leaving just enough oxidation to bring out the details of the design. We finish up by giving it a light lacquer to keep it looking beautiful. You can use a polishing cloth or clean cloth or even give it a light buff with a nail file. LEAD-FREE , NICKEL-FREE. CADMIUM-FREE
