Recycled 22ct Gold coins
These beautifully contemporary and eco-conscious gold rings dont cost the earth, literally and actually. They are available in all sizes, and each one is handcrafted to order from an British Sovereign coin.
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…”
