Jackson Hole is one of my all-time happy places. Whether it’s skiing and snowboarding down the mountain, or just taking in scenery, this magical mountain range refuels my soul! The hand cut art work the Grand Teton mountain range is made in 24k gold vermeil.
What’s gold vermeil you ask?
We start by creating the ring from sterling silver, and add the desired finish to the ring. Next, we put the ring through a series of baths and ultimately plate 24k over the sterling silver to achieve vermeil thickness. This makes the ring both durable and pretty.
I thought gold fill was better?
It all depends on the use. Our fabrication process isn’t conducive to using gold fill, as some of the brass core would be revealed, as well as the gold to thin out – causing tarnish and wear. Instead, we prefer to control the thickness of the gold and give it the highest level of plating possible. Keep in mind, rings do receive quite a bit of wear and tear, so the gold will be more prone to scratches and wear.
Finished with a high polish for super shine or a brush finish for a matte texture.
Wear this mountain ring alone, or mix and match with our other rings to create your own stack!
