Natural Magic

This is an enchanted ring. Its sterling silver band is cast by jewelry artist Nancy Nelson from a handcrafted mold made from green twig found in the ancient woods of West Virginia. Rather than the hard formality of a cut stone, it holds a rough-hewn nugget of aquamarine. A gemstone long believed to promote good luck and harmony, it seems to have an otherworldly glow when it catches the light. Through Nelson's keen ingenuity and masterful craftsmanship, the ring looks perfectly timeless—as easily a relic of an ancient era as it is a glamorous contemporary accessory. Handmade in West Virginia.

“Once I find that perfect object with beautiful shapes and texture, I figure out how I can transform it into a chic piece.”

Consider Nancy Nelson a nature talent scout. “I usually discover the items I cast not too far from home,” she says of the woods surrounding her West Virginia studio. “Once I find that perfect object with beautiful shapes and texture, I figure out how I can transform it into a chic piece.”



 Her passion for working with metals emerged while obtaining her BFA in industrial design. After enrolling in a metalsmithing class where she made her first sterling silver ring, she was hooked and continued developing her own unique style. Modern shapes and rustic forms reflect her belief that jewelry should evoke an emotion and tell a story for every wearer.

          Sent it to my girlfriend as a birthday gift and she loves it. The ring was of superb quality and visually striking.

          I can't think of a single bad thing about it.

          I would buy it again and again but she would probably question my sanity.

              The ring was beautiful and seems well made. It does run very true to size, which was disappointing because of all the reviews stating it was too large. I should have gone with a larger size and trusted the company.

                Comments about UncommonGoods Aquamarine Branch Ring:

                I purchased this for my sister for Christmas. The ring is beautiful, simple, elegant, and raw. Please remember that this is a raw aquamarine, not a polished or clear one. Each stone is very different in shape, color, clarity, and is handmade, not mass produced to spec. My sister loved the ring, as aquamarine is her birthstone, and she loves unique pieces. Thanks for offering such a unique and beautiful piece made my a real person!

                My husband bought 2 sizes of this ring, he wasn't sure which one would fit. The one that fit, broke about 2 days in (the portion keeping the stone in place. Structurally it didn't look like it was on there well to begin with.)

                The second one we kept as he lost the reciept for it and forgot about it for a few months. Maybe someday it'll fit me.

                Honestly I LOVE the ring, but not being able to wear it definitely knocks down stars in my book.

                This is a lovely and highly unique piece of work. Unfortunately the solder at the ends of the wire that runs through the stone breaks over time and you are apt to lose the stone. The last ring lasted 18 months but she had to have another. This one seems to be slightly of a more robust structure and the stone being quite different, bigger and more raw is a bonus. She loves this ring!

                  I got this ring for my sister, for her 1st Mother's Day. She flipped--it's gorgeous!! She has been wearing it every day since then. She says it's her new favorite. Beautiful and delicate, and still not too much for everyday wear to work and such. I'm so glad I made this choice.
