This square halo hair ring is solid sterling silver with a rhodium plating. Rhodium is a commonly used metal (member of the platinum family) that increases the shine and scratch-resistance of your jewelry. The ring is adorned with high-quality cubic zirconias that have a brilliant sparkle. A square-shaped, domed "stone" is carefully created using the hair you provide then professionally and securely set in the ring. Customize your special bereavement memento by adding one of over 250 options for color add-in. You can view all of our options at ashleylozano.com/pages/options
Please allow for slight variation from the photographs as hair/fur comes in many colors and textures which may alter the appearance of this ring.
In the photos, the following combination was used:
Color of hair: Salt and pepper
Method: The hair was treated then mixed into the material to make the "stone". In person, the ring looks a lot like a rutilated quartz. Alternatively, you may choose to have the hair draped across the top of the "stone" (please see supporting photographs)
Alternatively, a pinch of hair can be mailed directly to me using the directions and address you will receive after purchasing this item.
Please note your quoted turnaround time starts when I receive your package. Your order confirmation email will contain a link for confirming that I've received your package as well as an expected ship date.
Ashley Lozano is a self-taught silversmith specializing in highly personalized jewelry made from your pet's actual prints, cremations ashes, fingerprints, handwriting, baby footprints, sound waves, and more. She began creating jewelry in 2011 after looking for a necklace with her first born's name on it and failing to find anything she felt spoke for the overwhelming amount of love she had for him. Her first memorial cremation piece was created shortly after with her own father's ashes, whom she lost at an early age. Her work and techniques are ever-evolving as she aims to help her customers embrace and champion over their grief, something she has struggled with for much of her life.
Ashley grew up on the Mississippi Gulf Coast and relocated to North Carolina in her early twenties. She lives among the Blue Ridge Mountains- just outside of Asheville- with her two beautiful and wild sons and her woodworking Veteran husband. We look forward to working for you.
In the likely event that you have leftover ash after creating your item, the ash can be mailed back to you or you can opt for me to scatter them locally in the beautiful mountains of Asheville, NC - a place I am honored to call home. At my client's requests, I have taken ashes onto kayaking or hiking trips and respectfully scattered them among the beautiful scenery. Please leave a note in your package to opt-in for this complimentary service.
