This ring is a scale model of the Sierra Nevada mountain range in California, USA. The scale is roughly 10,000,000:1, vertical relief is somewhat exaggerated. Features of size larger than a mile print cleanly, including the eastern escarpment, Long Valley Caldera, Mammoth Mountain, Lake Tahoe, Yosemite Valley, King Canyon, the great western divide, and others.
The inside of the ring has a debossed quote from John Muir "The mountains are calling and I must go".
This ring is available in a range of sizes. Sizes quoted are internal diameter in mm. Convert using Ring Sizes
Individual customization is possible.
The material is raw (ie unpolished) metal in silver, bronze, or brass to preserve detail. Some initial roughness will rub away after a few weeks of wear. Bronze will (temporarily) stain skin green - this can be averted by coating the inside of the ring with nail polish.
Fitting is not tight, as the ring can flex through the open edge.
