The Molar RIng is a favorite at LCJ! There are so many cool facets to this piece. Did you know that dentists used to use the same technique to cast a crown that we use to carve and cast our jewelry? The lost wax casting technique is an ancient practice and is used to cast metals for anything from fine art to jewelry to a crowned tooth.
This piece is also inspired by a trend in jewelry history. During the 19th century it was popular to set ones children’s baby teeth set into fine jewelry. This was done as a love token and worn with pride. Many of these pieces still exist and are traded as highly valuable relics of the past.
This ring is an original LCJ design hand-carved by designer April Cromer. It was carved using a dentist's model of a #19 molar on the lower left side of the mouth.
