Much like the crosshatch pattern on a file this is our knurling style finish on a flat profile band. Some people in the industry might refer to it as Florentine.
Our version of knurling is a little unique. After a ring is cast, we file and sand the surface of the ring as normal, then instead of moving on to polishing the surface, we apply our knurling texture. Each stroke is created by hand by one of our goldsmiths. It is a little more time consuming than other finishes we offer, but we love the way each stroke catches the light and it can be quite a meditative process to apply. This finish wears quite well, but will show some burnishing over time.
*This piece takes 6-8 weeks for production in gold, and up to 10 weeks in platinum.
