These stacking cremation ash rings are 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. This listing is for both bands although they can be purchased separately in my shop. The curved band has five high-quality cubic zirconia that have a brilliant sparkle. The largest stone of the five measures 5mm. The memorial band has two small cubic zirconias and in the center a domed "stone" is carefully created from the cremation ash you provide then professionally and securely set in the ring. The cremation "stone" also measures 5mm. Customize your special bereavement memento by adding crushed (synthetic) opals or other color additives , which can be found here: https://ashleylozano.com/pages/options.
Please allow for slight variation from the photographs as cremation ash comes in many colors and textures which may alter the color of your cremation "stone".
In the example photos, the following combination was used:
Natural color of ash used: Light Gray

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 customer's 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.
