Recycled 22ct Gold coin circa 1872 – the reign of young Victoria
These are beautifully contemporary and eco-conscious gold rings whilst simultaneously being steeped in golden history and magical wonder. They are available in all sizes, and each one is handcrafted to order from an British Sovereign coin from the 1870’s. Each one will display the wonderful design details of the coin pictured, guaranteed.
These coins are just perfect to turn into beautiful high quality, original and ethical rings. During the terrible world wars some artisan soilders would take these precious coins and transform them into rings for loved ones and to remind them of loved ones back ‘at home’. The resourcefulness of these soilders is admirable and inspiring. This resourceful intent has now resurfaced in my work as a silversmith with green ethics looking to create original and unusual wearable pieces of art. Trench art to recycled art.
There is no ‘join’ in these rings which is another reason they are just perfect as wedding bands, they are an ‘unbroken circle’, quite lovely and symbolic.
The approx widths are between 4 mm and 6 mm in proportion the the actual ring size. Larger sizes being wider and vice versa. However, if you would prefer your ring in a narrower band just let me know, its no problem.
“An unbroken circle of union…”
