New Custom Men's Double Finger Ring
by Linda Zeng
Did you know that up until recent history, men wore equal, if not more, amounts of jewelry than women? The Industrial Revolution and its motto of thrift and practicality, however, made men do away with accessorizng. What a shame!
t. kahres jewelry recently custom created this men's double finger ring so no one would have to give up style or substance. The ring pays equal focus on the two rows of five black diamonds, as well as on the double bands.
It is rhodium plated in platinum, over sterling silver.Rhodium is a precious metal, a member of the platinum family. Rhodium electroplating is used to provide a surface that will resist scratches and tarnish, and give a white, reflective appearance.
The slanted rows reminds us of retro looking thunderbolts!

Teresa Kahres has been designing her line of nature-inspired jewelry from her studio in the heart of D.U.M.B.O., Brooklyn; a stimulating community of burgeoning artists.
Although she also works as a silversmith, her love of the outdoors has steered her towards enameling, a medium that allows for the use of colors in a way that more closely captures the essence of the objects that inspire her.
The torch method enables her to manipulate these colors into fine lusters, and she often embellishes her pieces with her signature use of pearls. While her pieces, often castings of organic matter such as sea urchins, leaves, and shells, have an ethereal quality, they also possess strength and substance.
T. Kahres jewelry combines exquisite craftsmanship with the eye of a natural artist. Each piece has been meticulously crafted like a small sculpture and truly stands alone.
