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.

I received this pretty little ring as a Christmas gift. It is my birthstone so I especially love the color. As other reviewers mentioned it it less shiny in person than the photo implies, but I think it's still beautiful. I love that it is handcrafted and unique. For those who take great notice to detail, the ring I received is essentially the mirror image of the one in the photo (The right side of the silver extends to the top of the stone instead of the left as shown in the image).

I was so disappointed when my mother told me her ring broke after one week of wear. I live far away so I always shop online for gifts. I thought I had found the perfect gift and an awesome website. My mom told me she returned the ring, hoping for a new one because she loved it so much. She was disappointed when hey sent back the same ring, but had tried to repair it. She returned it for a refund. I'm bummed!

      I liked that this ring was unique and I was really excited to receive it. However in person it wasn't as nice as I thought. Needless to say I was disappointed and returned the ring.

        Received the following two texts:

        "Filed the rough stone so the ring would go on. Thanks again!"

        "It is a natural stone and it was not rounded on the side toward your fingers. So that made it much smaller. "

        I thought it would look natural...I didn't realize it would be to uncomfortable to wear. ...sigh...

                  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.

                        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!
