Ring Finish

These are the finishes offered on our rings.

The Brushed finish has fine lines that go along The Polished finish is a mirror finish.       It looks similar to a chromium toaster. The Angled Brush finish has fine lines      going at a 45 degree angle.  It catches      the light nicely on a curved ring. The Cross Brush finish is a coarse finish      that shows X marks in the light.

The Satin finish on the far ring is an      even matte finish.  It is done with a scruffy      wheel, so cannot be controlled in tight areas. The Bead Blast finish is a dark and      dull finish. It contrasts nicely with      polished. It is not as robust as Satin. The Peened finish is made with a ballpeen      hammer then polished afterwards. It reflects      facets of light and doesn't show abuse. The Brushed Ballpeen is also made with      a ballpeen hammer, but it is brushed afterward      to be less reflective.

The Rough Scratch finish is done with a       sanding drum while the ring spins on a lathe.      It has a clean, even lines. The Angled Rough Scratch is the same as      RS, but the lines go more at an angle to the       ring.  It enhances reflections on curved rings. The Alien Skin finish has random lines of      swirling patterns done with an abrasive tip. The      finish looks better in person than in photographs.
