It’s composed of sterling silver (925) handmade in my studio.
This ring is custom made with a date of your choice from the Mayan Tzolkin calendar.
The Tzolkin is the civil calendar for Mayas in Central America and more specifically from Mexico. They used this calendar as a base to indicate a date and would complete it with other cycles if necessary (Haab and Long Count). You can find all the explanations on the following link:
This calendar was the main one for the Mayas. Therefore we offer you to choose a important dates for you to make your custom made ring with Maya glyphs. This date could be your birthday, your wedding date…
This ring is really one of a kind. It is artisan etched. The etching process takes times but the result allows appreciating the intricate and delicate patterns. The bas relief effect is really nice. The deeper part is matte and the upper part has been sanded and polished. Shiny finish.
Etching is an artisanal process which produces a unique design each time I use it. Two pieces with a same design will never be exactly the same by the hazards of the process. Each detail makes a unique piece.
The glyph is 1 x 1.3cm (0.394 x 0.512 inches) (approximately) depending on the date numbers added to the glyph.
This set is custom made. I will need 3 working days to finish your order.
As we currently dwell in Mexico, provide a period of 3 to 6 weeks to receive your order. Thank you for taking this information into account before ordering in our shop (please, read the complete conditions of shipping here).

I hope you will love this jewel as much as I enjoyed creating it.
