The Waterfall Ring - Gold Vermeil


The Waterfall Ring from 'Our Bodies Of Water' collection. 


Size: N

The heaviest and most sculptural form of the collection adorns the capability and elegance of a waterfall. The perpetual circular motion of the ring is a nod to these enduring, endless wonders that carve their own path and shape the world around them. 

'Our Bodies of Water' the ring collection designed and made by Hannah Bourn seeks to capture the sincerity, beauty and essence of different bodies of water. Its movements, textures and embrace has the power to nourish our lives both physically and spiritually from the oceans and great lakes to gentle streams and rivers. 

Made from fairmined gold vermeil.

Vermeil has been used since the 19th Century and is when a thin layer of gold is applied to a solid sterling silver piece. It makes the jewellery look the same colour as gold but without it being solid therefore a cheaper option for gold looking jewellery without compromising on quality.

All the Gold Vermeil pieces have a thick layer of 18ct yellow gold (on average 3 microns) applied over the top of the silver making it the most durable gold plating option possible- about five times thicker than conventional gold plating.

Normal ‘Gold Plating’ is a very thin layer of gold and can be applied over the top of any base metal which usually isn’t silver and could be hiding a cheap metal such as brass or bronze. Because the jewellery is made to last and of the highest quality, no base metals are used and Hannah only works with solid silver, gold and platinum.
