The solid 18K gold setting was completely made by hand by our in-house goldsmith. The heart is made from Corvette Fordite,* which has a subtle and refined color palette. The genius of this ring lies in a surprise – the heart is reversible! It can swing back and forth revealing both sides and their unique swirls of color.
- Materials: Fordite, 18K yellow gold, white diamonds
- Dimensions: Heart 1″ x 3/4″ (aprox), diamonds are 7 pts each, band is 2.5mm thick

*A little history from fordite.com,
“The over sprayed paint in the painting bays gradually built up on the tracks and skids that the car frames were painted on. Over time, many colorful layers built up there. These layers were hardened repeatedly in the ovens that the car bodies went into to cure the paint. Some of these deeper layers were even baked 100 times.
As the story goes, some crafty workers with an eye for beauty realized that this unique byproduct was worth salvaging. It was super-cured, patterned like psychedelic agate, and could be cut and polished with relative ease!
Sadly, the techniques that produced this great rough years ago, are no longer in practice. The Fordite “mines” are dry, so get some while you still can!”
