so I am sure that the dude who requested photos of this ring oxidized isn't going to order it but it was neat to dig out the liver of sulfur compound and play chemist for an afternoon. I love how the dark patina roots itself deep into the details, which really makes for an amazing look. I think I like it.
here is the ring right after being dipped in the solution. it was a beautiful blue-black but it obscured the detailing. probably after some wear it would have buffed the black somewhat, which might have revealed the detailing some more, but I'm not a huge fan of this look.
