CUSTOM ORDER JEWELRY
It is made of sterling silver (925) handmade in my studio.
This ring shows the pattern of a bird in flight, symbol of freedom. This pretty dove is highly symbolic. Since ancient times, dove represents love and faithfulness. She was associated for example with the goddess Astarte in the Middle East, or the most famous Aphrodite in Greek mythology.
In Western culture, it is the symbol of love, of peace and of the Holy Spirit in Christianity.
We also find the dove as a representation of love in pre-Columbian America. Offering one of its feathers to someone was the equivalent to a declaration of love.
Therefore, I carved this beautiful dove in flight among flowers. The plate was then embossed to give it the shape of a dome and give volume to this ring.
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 oxidized and the upper part has been sanded and polished.
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.
US size: 7.
Surface: 2 cm in diameter.
The ring is a half round band of 2 mm wide (0.079 inches).
