6 Dinge die Du über den Salbei Ring wissen solltest

6 things you should know about the sage ring

Today I would like to answer frequently asked questions about my sage leaf rings answer. At trade fairs, markets and also by email I am often asked very similar questions about the sage leaf rings and perhaps you have already asked yourself one or the other. So today I hope to be able to bring a little more clarity to the matter and tell you some unanswered questions about my sage leaf rings.

6 things you should know about the sage ring

Sage leaves

Taken directly from the real leaf

Yes! The sage leaf rings are really taken directly from a real leaf. How exactly can you imagine that? I need a sage leaf for this. A fresh sage leaf from the garden! Yes, I have planted countless sage plants in our garden and more are being planted every year. Firstly, I love sage not only as a ring, but also in my food and as a tea. Secondly, I find the sage leaf to have a particularly beautiful structure and this structure is then beautifully reproduced in the metal. The metal, i.e. silver or bronze, is then applied to this sage leaf in layers. This means I can remove the leaf true to the original and preserve it for eternity.

Sage rings in silver and bronze

Used material

The Sage leaf rings are available in either silver, gold plated or bronze . Yes, they are and will remain these two materials. I am often asked why I work with bronze. It is very easy to explain. Bronze has a very earthy character and goes wonderfully with my jewelry, which comes from nature.

The rings are open at the back

The sage leaf ring is open at the back, yes! Are the rings also available in a closed version? No.

It is not planned either. I have only closed the sage leaf rings once. That was for a custom-made wedding ring. I made 2 rings from one sage leaf and then closed those 2 rings. Apart from that, I think it is nice to leave them in their natural shape. I am also often asked here whether the open ring shape means that you can constantly change the size of the ring? NO! Definitely not. You can adjust it a little once, but you cannot bend it over and over again. Metal cannot withstand that. Before you buy a sage leaf ring, you should know your ring size or measure it. Here I have a guide for you, how you can determine your ring size most easily. Depending on the width of the ring, you then add 1 or 2 ring sizes. Because the wider the ring, the more circumference it needs. As a small example: My ring size measured on a narrow ring is 54. The sage leaf ring that I wear has a width of 25 mm and a size of 56, so 2 ring sizes more!

Sage Ring

How does the color come about on the sage leaf rings in silver?

I am also often asked how the colors on the silver sage leaf rings come about. This is an artificial oxide and thus a chemical reaction with the silver. Depending on the duration, heat and length, I can play around a bit with the colors and intensities. Will it stay on my ring forever? Yes and no. Depending on how you treat your ring, the color will last longer or shorter. Avoiding water would be an advantage. Take the ring off when washing your hands, showering or bathing and do not leave it in a damp room. If you are not wearing it, store it in a dry and dark place, preferably in a jewelry box. What happens if you leave it up when washing your hands? Of course, nothing will happen if you leave it up when washing your hands once or twice. In general, it does not harm the material itself. With silver, it is not a problem to bring it into contact with water. But the color simply darkens a little more over time. This can happen especially in the recesses. For some of us, this is no problem at all; they want their piece of jewelry to "live with them". For others, this is not so great; they want to keep it as it was when they bought it. In this case, please avoid water.

How do I care for my sage leaf ring?

I am often asked what you should bear in mind when caring for sage leaf rings. Well, I have already mentioned some of them above: Avoid water. This also applies to the sage leaf ring in bronze. This can also become duller or darker more quickly through frequent contact with water. The easiest way to clean the sage leaf ring in bronze is with a warm, mild soapy water and an old, soft toothbrush. Instead of the soapy water, you can also use a little toothpaste. Use this to brush the ring thoroughly and then rinse it with lukewarm water. You can then polish it with a silver cleaning cloth. With the silver version, it is enough to polish it a little with a silver cleaning cloth if you feel that the ring has become duller or even darker. Otherwise, store the ring in a dry, dark place, preferably in a jewelry box.

Sage Ring

My ring size is not in the shop?

I make the sage leaf rings in sizes 49 to 65, which is how they are in the shop. It can happen that one or other size is not available at the moment. If so, please write me a short message and I will check in the warehouse whether the size is still available and then put the ring in the shop for you on the same day or the following day. If the ring is not in stock and is in this number game, then I will be happy to make it and put it in the shop 1 to 2 weeks later. If you need a ring size larger than 65 or smaller than 49, it is also possible to make a sage leaf ring. However, I charge an additional 10 euros for this, as these are special sizes.

Do you have any further questions that I haven't covered here? If so, just leave me a message and I'll be happy to answer them.

See you soon!
