Triple bands and gemstones
This ring was so pretty we had to show it in two places! Also known as the Texas Tech Ladies Ring Triple Band shown in Rose Gold, this version is made from Continuum Sterling silver. We love this new metal created by Stuller, Inc. our manufacturing partner in Lafayette, Louisiana – and let us tell you why!
A Great New Metal
Continuum Sterling Silver was developed by the metallurgists at Stuller, and has more than 95% precious metal content. How is that different than regular sterling silver? You know how sterling silver develops a black or yellow looking color when it hasn’t been worn for a while…and how much of a pain that is to clean off? That stuff is called Oxidation and Tarnish.
Well, the smart folks at Stuller made Continuum with an additive giving it superior oxidization and tarnish resistance allows for a longer lasting finish. For those interested in metal working, Continuum’s mechanical properties fall between those of 14K yellow gold and most other sterling silver alloys. It can easily be hardened through an annealing process, making it comparable to the as-cast hardness of 14K gold.
No more tarnish
More easily said, it has the look of Platinum, and the strength of Gold, and if you like silver metals versus Gold this is a great, affordable option for you! We’ve actually made several pieces of bridal jewelry in Continuum Sterling Silver, and it wears beautifully with much less maintenance than traditional sterling. And for those who have a Nickel allergy, Continuum Sterling silver contains no Nickel. Best of all, no more tacky feeling fingers from silver polish cloths!
But enough Tech talk…back to the ring. This Texas Tech ring is pictured in Continuum Sterling Silver with a center row of gemstones, but can be made with plain triple bands. The bands can be modified to whatever width suits you best, and can be made in solid colors in any metal quality, and in two tone in gold qualities. We can even add a halo for you…if you think you deserve one!
