About Details Inspiration

Here's our take on a common Art Deco-era wedding band style: a square-edged hoop engraved with a repeating chevron pattern on three sides.  It was meant to reference wheat, which has been the food staple of humans for millenia. This type of wheat pattern in jewelry, not surprisingly, is meant to symbolize abundance and prosperity.

    The so-called "wheat pattern" in jewelry is typically understood to symbolize a bountiful harvest.  It's been speculated that wheat carving and engraving on rings emerged during the Renaissance, symbolizing fertility.  We especially love this kind of abstracted, but recognizable, wheat pattern engraving—it's repetitive to the point where the plant's image is transformed into pure ornament.  It's decorative, but an echo of the ancient symbol remains.
