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 garnet in a handcrafted bezel setting. This setting is the same used by ancient goldsmiths from the earliest known jewelry.

The cabochon-cut garnet was a favorite stone of the ancient Greeks and Romans. Its name is rooted in the Greek granatum, meaning pomegranate. Lore and legend ties the winter fruit to Persephone, the queen of the underworld. The blood red hue of the garnet has been believed to protect the wearer from harm, as if Persephone herself has passed a hand over the brow of the wearer and deemed them still fit for the land of the living.

The Ancient Heirloom Ring invokes tales of ages long past and 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 :)
