All that Glitters

This ring is the motherlode of sophisticated charm. 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 iron pyrite. In modern times, pyrite's deep golden luster earned it the nickname "fool's gold," but many cultures have long believed that it promotes abundance and positive energy. 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.

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.

    Comments about RAW PYRITE BRANCH RING:

    I am always on the lookout for different-looking sterling jewelry, and this ring immediately caught my eye. It fits great and I love the band. The stone itself is square and tends to get caught on things (we still have to wear gloves in the Midwest during this endless winter), but it is smooth and does not actually have any jagged edges - no snagging clothing. I found a pyrite necklace at a local store and I love that I have a necklace/ring set. This is a very unique piece and I am wearing it a lot. I really want to give it 5 stars but it is a ring that you have to be a little careful with because the stone sits up high. Otherwise it is very well made and I expect it to last a lifetime.
