* Louisiana Cypress * Sterling Silver * Sz 8.5
This simple, petite split shank ring is completely handmade from band to bezel with .925 sterling silver sheet metal & wire and features a hand cabbed piece of cypress heart wood cut from a thick cypress knot collected from the gator filled banks of Manchac Swamp, Louisiana and then polished with it’s own resin.
A dark grungy patina has been applied to the sides of this smooth fine silver bezel to make this ring feel as if it was plucked straight off the swamp floors, just as I found the driftwood knots they were created from on the banks of Manchac Swamp and Lake Maurepas, Louisiana.
This is a perfect, comfy everyday piece for those of us that like to carry around a reminder of Louisiana’s natural beauty at all times!
The inner band is stamped with official .925 sterling and HCS maker’s mark.

STERLING SILVER CARE
*STORAGE: While not being worn, it's best to store your silver jewelry at room
temperature in a dark space, preferably in an airtight bag. Avoid direct sunlight and
humidity, do not leave in a car or on a windowsill. If your piece does get wet, dry it
*WEARING: -Never submerge your silver jewelry in water. Some tap water may contain sulfur which will discolor the metal. While wearing, avoid contact with hairspray, perfumes, or lotions to prevent damage or discoloration. Never go to bed while wearing your jewelry.
Gemstones (Especially Louisiana Opals) can be very delicate and should never be worn during strenuous activities to avoid damage to the stone. Dropping gemstones and glass cabs will likely result in damage to the piece, so be kind to your jewelry and wear with care!
*MAINTENANCE: Sterling Silver may tarnish over time, to keep your sterling piece looking new, gently rub with a soft cotton polishing cloth until shine is restored. Doing this regularly will prevent tarnish altogether. The use of liquid chemical jewelry cleaner is highly discouraged.
