Story 📜

Inspired by ancient rings that graced the hands of Roman Empresses, this is a piece to be treasured for decades and passed down through the centuries. A detailed braided solid gold band encircles your finger, displaying a substantial cabochon peridot in a handcrafted bezel setting. This setting is the same used by ancient goldsmiths from the earliest known periods of history.

In the ancient world, Peridot was only to be found on one island in the Red Sea. Heavily guarded by the Egyptians, this island was almost barren except for its rich deposits of Peridot. To even land on the island without permission earned the sentence of death. The ancients so adored peridot that they mined the island until it was completely gone from the ancient world.

Peridot, for many centuries, was known as the evening emerald because it is best viewed at dusk, when the vibrant green hues come out to play. In fact the ancient historian Agatharchides once wrote that that peridot is “invisible during the day since it is overwhelmed by the brightness of the sun; but when night falls, it shines in the dark and is visible from afar wherever it may be.”

‘If heaven would make me another world, Of one entire and perfect chrysolite (peridot)!
Shakespeare, Othello

The Ancient Heirloom Ring is crafted in 100% recycled gold. Each piece is made to order for you in our NYC studio and takes roughly 2 weeks to ship.

Why Solid Gold ✨

Solid gold is the best option if you:

1. Want to wear your piece forever or pass it down as an heirloom. Solid gold will last for centuries without degrading.

2. Want to invest in jewelry as an asset rather than an accessory. Gold traditionally appreciates in value and can always be melted down and made into a new piece

Unlike many brands, our gold is never hollow - it is always 100% solid, cast using the lost wax method, meaning there is a lot more gold in each piece.

Our gold is 100% certified recycled and each piece is handcrafted here in New York.

When will my piece ship? 💌

We keep a small inventory of some pieces - please check above the 'Add to Cart' button to see if your piece is in stock.

If not, it will display the estimated ship time so that we can custom make it for you in our NYC studio.

What does Traditional Retail Price mean? 💵

Excellent question! The majority of brands sell through stores like Neiman Marcus, Net-a-Porter and local boutiques - this is called wholesaling.

The standard formula is that retailers can purchase jewelry at 50% off the RRP. They then double that price and sell it on to you. There is also an agreement that the brand cannot undercut the retailers and offer lower prices on their own website, so no matter where you shop, it's always the same price.

We do not wholesale our solid gold pieces - we make them in NYC to order.

This means we can offer an amazing price without the retail markup. It's that simple :)
