Vessel Cocktail Ring #1
This ring is a hand forged sterling silver bowl/vessel shaped ring with a large (1 karat Oregon sunstone) and 24k keum boo fused inside. The ring shank is a hand forged European shank with a nice square bottom. One of a kind and size 8.5 - can't be sized by me.
This is a start in a series of vessel rings around the feminine symbology of a vessel. Women are creative containers for life, beauty and enjoyment. A cocktail ring came into fashion in the early 1900s as a way for women to signal solidarity for freedom and equality, the right to vote and in direct resistance to abolition (cocktail ring). These rings will be made in that spirit each one completely original.
