Corvette Fordite Statement Ring
This listing is for a beautiful and simple Corvette Fordite ring in a size 9.75. The piece is entirely sterling silver and has been oxidized for an antique patina. The half round wire makes for a very comfortable ring band and you'll love to wear it all day. The stone itself is sitting on an angle for an asymmetric touch.
During the automotive paint process, paint overspray builds up on the tracks that the car travels on, and eventually needs to be broken off. Factory workers started bringing these chunks of "Fordite" home as an oddity, but it wasn't long before someone polished it up and set it in a piece of jewelry. No two pieces of Fordite will ever look the same. This particularly type of Corvette "Fordite" is sought after because of it's wide rainbow of colors.
Prior to being shipped all pieces are re-polished and stones are checked for tightness to ensure the piece is as perfect as possible when it arrives. Each piece is made from scratch by hand – no two will ever be alike.
I try to be as accurate with color as possible with both my camera and how they appear on screen. With that being said, no two computer monitors or phones are the same and the color may vary slightly from what you see on the screen to the product as viewed with your own eyes.
