Zinc / Silver

This ring is about as straight-up-buttoned-down-traditional as it gets around here!
Silver ring with a zinc 'stone'. Almost Harald Nielsen ( a Georg Jensen designer)
For use of zinc in jewellery sans pareil, see the work of Lucy Sarneel
(neale>nielsen>sarneel. see what I did there? jenga jewellers...)


  1. How has this aged? I suspect interesting electrochemical things would happen... Galvanic protection for your ring.

  2. Good question...
    I did one of these 12 years ago for my mother- it shows no changes other than from wear...
