We start with raw brass and we etch the shape of Montana outline into the brass using our acid free etching process. This ring is available in four whole sizes and two finishes: Matte Silver and Antique Matte Brass.
Matte Silver Finish:
After etching and finishing, the ring is electroplated with 500 microinches of sterling silver, a slight oxidation and a protective finish. Most silver plate is only 10 to 20 microinches thick, making this at least 25 times thicker! This process is a nickel free process. The result is a gorgeous matte super durable silver finish. Take care of your piece just like any other silver jewelry you have. Keep it a cool dry airtight box, bag or the packaging it comes with. You can use a silver polishing cloth or sterling silver cleaner but all your really need is a clean soft cloth.
Antique Matte Brass Finish
After the piece is etched, we darken it with a brown black oxidizer but then remove almost all of it, leaving just enough oxidation to bring out the details of the design. We finish up by giving it a light lacquer to keep it looking beautiful. You can use a polishing cloth or clean cloth or even give it a light buff.
Please allow is 2-3 day for antique brass and up to two weeks on silver. If you need by an exact date, please email to see if we have in stock.
