Oneida (or. Native American/Tuscarora) - mn. standing stone
A ring who's name needs little explanation when you know its origins. We worked to refine this traditional technique of inlay idea and combine it with our contemporary aesthetic. Set into a band with a profile reminiscent of the wedding ring worn by Kate's (the designer) mom: an 18k yellow band inlaid with a single stone...It obviously left a lasting impression. Each stone is hand cut and inlaid with the utmost care, by Kate.
Our updated design has been refined so that the stones are slightly recessed making them more protected for better every day wear. The Oneida is now available in three subtle shape variations:
- Squared edges with a thicker border and wider, squared off band. Channel is 2mm wide. (SHOWN HERE)
- Softened edges, with a slightly more delicate band, for a more feminine take. Channel is 2mm wide. (LISTED HERE)
- And! A men's version. An even 4.5mm wide at every point. (LISTED HERE)
Each Oneida is custom made to fit your desired color palette or specific choice of stones. You can start by referencing a favorite painting or image, a favorite past Oneida we’ve done, or specific stones you’d like included. Please note that translucent stones other than diamonds or sapphires (which fall under the “precious stones” category) do not work in this ring as the scale doesn’t allow for them to keep their character. In other words, once cut down to size the color or definition you love about them is typically lost. So we recommend only opaque stones (which includes mother of pearl) for optimal effect.
**SIZING** We can go as small as a size 3.5, as well as quarter sizes. Please select the closest size listed and write down your desired size in the notes section just prior to checkout. These rings are very difficult, if not impossible to size once the inlay has been set, so please take the time to be sure of your size when ordering. It is often possible to stretch the rings by 1/4-1/2 size, and sizing beads may be added to accommodate 1/4-1 size smaller if needed. Fees will apply.
