Each ring is hand-woven with solid Sterling silver wire, then oxidized and polished to an aged, dark silver lustre with faceted uranium glass, stainless steel watch gears and Sterling silver bead caps. They are also completely adjustable and may be worn on virtually any-sized adult finger without sacrificing comfort or style. The band is about 4mm wide.

Uranium glass fluoresces bright green under UV light and although it registers above background radiation on a Geiger counter, uranium glass is only negligibly radioactive and considered harmless. Uranium glass is often referred to as "vaseline glass" and acquired this nickname in the 1920s, given it's visual similarity to commercial petroleum jelly sold at that time. The term "vaseline glass" is still used widely in the United States and can refer to other kinds of glass that resemble it, but only glass that contains uranium fluoresces under black light, as shown in the second photo. The spirit level also fluoresces, matching the glass beads.

This ring comes in a lovely gift box, which can easily be wrapped. Makes a great gift-- especially since you no longer have to worry about guessing someone's ring size!
