Eric Othole's latest offering is this all hand fabricated Keum-Boo ring, set with a spectacular rectangular cut Sleeping Beauty turquoise stone. Keum-Boo or "gold added” is an ancient jewelry technique originating in Korea, which involves attaching gold foil to sterling silver. Eric has joined sterling silver, 24K gold foil, and added other unique design elements to create the band which measures about 1/2" at its widest part and 3/8" at its narrowest area. This ring is sized at 6 3/4 and is slightly adjustable. Signed by the artist.
