This listing is for one fordite silver ring. We crafted these fordite rings in solid fine and sterling silver. The bands are set size so that you can pick the one that is your size. These are size 6, 6.5, and 7 US. The fordite stones in these are about 14 x 10 mm. One of the frustrations with sized ring shopping is when you see a stone shape and color you like but it's not in your size. We kept that in mind while making these so that these stones are really all pretty similar. This is muscle car fordite from the Bowling Green KY plant where vets were painted circa early 2000's. This is widely considered by many artists to be THE premium fordite type. The second from the left in the first picture is the size 7. The second picture is the size 6.5. The third picture is the size 6 that's available.

Fordite is recycled automotive paint sourced primarily from automotive factories. It forms in thin layers as car parts are painted on the racks that hold them in place. After hundreds of trips through the booth where the paint is sprayed then baked the excess buildup is scraped off the racks. We buy this waste paint in rough chunks and recycle it into beautiful jewelry. It’s said it takes almost a thousand layers of paint to make a one inch thick piece of fordite. The original fordite came from Ford Motors in Detroit hence the name Ford-ite. Fordite from prior to 1978 can contain lead. All of our fordite is either current or from the early 2000’s so it’s not lead based paint.

Why buy from us? Most artists are part time and only dabble in fordite while Brian is a full time artist who specializes in cutting and polishing fordite. Our cabochons are meant for jewelers and or collectors who have an eye for quality. Our work is world class. You cannot beat our finish quality on fordite! We work closely with a group of metal smiths and wire wrappers to ensure our designs meet the needs of today's artists and offer just about any shape and size imaginable. Our fordite is accurately represented and has been vetted by us.
