This piece is a part of TEA's Inlay signet ring collection. The inlay featured is Fordite.
Fordite, also known as Detroit agate or Motor City agate, is old automotive paint which has hardened sufficiently over time allowing it to be cut and polished. It was formed from the buildup of layers of enamel paint over-sprayed on tracks were vehicles were hand spray-painted. These tracks carrying vehicles would be used daily causing the enamel paint to be overlapped and baked numerous times. This process of painting vehicles has sense been automated making Fordite quite rare.
Each ring is going to have a different section of Fordite slab inlayed so the pattern and overall look of the stone will vary with each order.
The length and width of the face is approximately 15mm x 9mm
