I’m a little divided on this one. On the one hand, I’m in love with the look of this series of  ”black gold” and sapphire rings from Etsy seller artmasters. However, these rings are anything but cheap ($1500-$2000), and the metal used here is actually white gold with a black rhodium alloy overlay which wears off in six months to a year. To their credit, they are clear about this on their page and even offer a free reapplication within two years, but I personally don’t see the point. There are other ways to make “black gold”, including actual alloys and a new laser technique, that won’t wear off over time. Plus, maybe I’m judging badly because of professionally lit photos and a large selection, but I’m not sure these guys are the kind of handcrafted work I’m used to from  Etsy. I’m not listing this as an official “Etsy Find”, but I do think the rings are gorgeous.
