Recycled 100 year old 22ct gold half sovereign coin
A lovely simple and rustic oak leaf ring which is not only handcrafted, unusual, completely unique but have also been transformed from an 22ct gold half sovereign coin coin.
The oak leaf design is freehand drawn onto the 22ct gold half sovereign coin. I then meticulously follow this guide sketch with a traditional hand engraver. The design is then ‘pierced’ out with a traditional jewellers hand saw. It is these tools which allow me a close connection with each piece and to ensure your ring will be completely original and special to wear. The design is finished with a lovely hammer textured and faceted 18ct yellow gold band.
The ring is presented with and complimented the ‘donor’ gold sovereign from which the leaf was hand cut. This is a lovely piece of gold which connects your ring to its previous wondrous history. So lovely that it makes a beautiful silhouette pendant which I suspend on a gold chain with a ‘hairy growler’ shepards hook safety catch also from hand hammered and turned gold.
Size : The oak leaf is approx 7 mm wide and 17 mm long. The band is approx 1.5mm wide.
