Bow Ring (Turquoise)

$875.00
About Details Inspiration

To decorate our signature 1909 ring, we rescue turquoise cabochons from antique Indian jewelry. Using vintage turquoise has two benefits: one, it's better for the environment to recycle materials. Two, age and wear imbues turquoise with interesting color variations that you just can't reproduce with new stones. Win-win!

In Western jewelry, the infinity-symbol-shaped bow or knot has symbolized endless love and constancy as far back as 500AD, when it was employed in Celtic rings.  The sentimental Victorians loved the bow as a tidy metaphor for undying affection: it loops around itself in an eternal twist, forever and ever, never beginning and never ending.  In a time when lovers were often parted for long periods, it could be a comforting metaphor for intimacy despite being apart.  Think about what would happen if you pulled both ends of this bow: the further the distance, the tighter the knot.
