For you the women who are interesting in black color and want something different for your jewelry, I recommend you to choose these hematite rings for women. Hematite itself is a mineral, colored black to steel or silver-gray, brown to reddish brown, or red. It is mined as the main ore of iron. Varieties include kidney ore, martite (pseudomorphs after magnetite), iron rose and specularite (specular hematite). While the forms of hematite vary, they all have a rust-red streak. Huge deposits of hematite are found in banded iron formations. Gray hematite is typically found in places where there has been standing water or mineral hot springs, such as those in Yellowstone National Park in the United States.. Hematite’s popularity in jewelry was at its highest in Europe during the Victorian era, and has since seen a strong resurgence in North America, especially in the western United States. Certain types of hematite or iron oxide rich clay, especially Armenian bole has been used in gilding. Hematite is also used in art such as intaglio engraved gems.
The first hematite rings for women on our list is silver hematite cabochon ring.This beautiful hematite cabochon is 14mm x 10mm, and has been set in a sterling silver crown bezel setting, on top of a handforged sterling silver band. The 4.3mm-wide (approx 0.17″) domed band has a smooth polished finish.Sterling silver is an alloy composed of 92.5% silver and 7.5% copper. The copper component in sterling is what causes it to tarnish, which can also result in skin discolouration. A lot of commercial sterling silver has been rhodium plated to prevent this. Fifth Heaven’s sterling silver is not rhodium plated.
And the second hematite rings for women on our list is sterling silver hematite ring.This sterling silver ring set with a hematite stone. The ring is from the 1970’s at my best estimate. It is marked “STERLING” on the inside of the band. This piece is in good condition. The sterling has normal use and wear marks, but no major dents, dings, scratches, or scuffs. The band is round and not bent out of shape. The sterling is tarnished on the band. The hematite stone has some use marks and a small scuff, but no chips, cracks, or large scratches. This is a great looking sterling silver ring in nice condition.
