Lapis Lazuli from Chile and the Making of a Signet Ring

Posted by Alicia Arkwright on

Lapis Lazuli Mens Signet Ring

This custom men's signet ring was crafted entirely from start to finish. Beginning with a raw chunk of Chilean Lapis Lazuli to the final polish of the recycled sterling silver. This ring is solid metal and created with a technique called lost wax casting.

A little insider knowledge, my first go at this ring I ended up cracking the stone during the finishing phase. It was a huge bummer, but once I had my moment of grief I got back into the studio, cut another stone, and finished the ring you see above. 

Kudos to my partner Nick for always being up to model when I need it (this is his hand).
