I’ve been designing stacking bands for the Zaleska collection as a way to appreciate the beauty of simplicity.
Agnes Martin was a Canadian painter who’s work is often referred to as minimalism, yet she self-described as an abstract expressionist. Her repetitive, emotional paintings were meant to depict the gloriousness and simplicity of being. She painted feelings - joy, beauty, innocence, and happiness, to name a few. By going within for inspiration, she suggested metaphorical worlds for her viewers to contemplate. Because of the subtleties of her work, prints of her paintings were very hard to create and therefore she did not reach the same levels of fame as her masculine counterparts of the time.
14K gold vermeil stacking ring.
Gold vermeil is an overlay of gold over a base of sterling silver and requires special care. To extend the life of your gold vermeil jewelry, remove when washing hands, showering, applying lotions or perfumes, using harsh cleansers, or working out. Always store your jewelry in a dry place, preferably in individual air-tight bags. Do not use chemical jewelry cleansers or polishing cloths on gold vermeil jewelry.
Gold vermeil jewelry will inevitably fade to a warm silver or a light 10K gold colour. This is the nature of plated jewelry. The rate of wear depends on care, climate and individual body chemistry, and may vary greatly on a case by case basis. As rings are worn on the hand, and are exposed to more frequent rubbing, they will often age more quickly than necklaces or earrings. We do not offer re-plating of our gold vermeil designs and all sales of gold vermeil jewelry are final.
Handmade - please wear with care.
