Teardrop Fordite Rope-Bezel Ring
This Detroit Fordite ring has a great pattern of curved black and white layers, with a tiny stripe of red. The chubby teardrop shape is really pretty with the delicate rope edge. It looks and feels wonderful on the hand!
The ring is a size 7 3/4. If you need a different size, just send me a message before ordering. I can resize the ring for an additional $20, with no limit on size!
Each Fordite I cut is completely unique and one of a kind!
What Is Fordite?
Fordite, also known as Detroit or Motor City Agate, is the by-product of automobile manufacturers from the now obsolete practice of hand spray-painting cars on the production line. Multiple layers of differently colored paint overspray would build up on the tracks, and eventually had to be removed when it started obstructing the tracks. Once it was removed, people noticed how aesthetically beautiful it was, and artists started begging for the material. Thus Fordite was born! People knowledgeable in classic cars can actually point to certain colors in Fordite and name the car and production year it came from. What a great way to own a piece of history!
