Palladium Sterling Rings with Reticulated Silver and 14KY Accent

Those custom made bands show a contrast of textures from 3 different metals and finish.
With a high polish on the Palladium Sterling Silver -  which is a new alloy with only Palladium as the alloyed part in the Sterling Silver - I then used 80/20 Silver to have a rougher texture created with the reticulation technique and the use of a jeweler's torch with repeated heating of the piece before it was cut and fitted in place.  I added a 14KY round wire to add light and a touch of color to the finished pieces and a patina to increase the contrast of the two textures.
These rings were designed specifically to fit the character, affinities and temperament of my oversea customers, a process that required exchanging lots of pictures and emails!
