The Shield Maiden Garnet Ring

$148.00

"The Shield Maiden”.  In Scandinavian folklore and mythology, the Shield Maiden was a woman who had chosen to fight as a warrior alongside men. While historical existence of shield maidens is still heavily debated, they do feature prominently in the “Vikings” series which was one of my favorite shows and I believe they did exist and showed how strong and equal they are to men.  

This beautiful Garnet is bezel set in fine silver serrated wire on a heavily textured sterling silver backplate. The setting is 1/2" wide x 1-1/4" long and stamped Sterling on backside. The wide band has been heavily textured and tapers from 15mm to 10mm wear it rests on your finger to make it more comfy to wear.  The inside is stamped with my makers mark, sterling and STRONG.  All silver was given a dark patina to highlight the textures and compliment the deep red of the stone. Sizes as a 7 but would fit best on fingers 6-1/4 to 6-1/2 due to the width of the band. The backplate is stamped with sterling. Setting is just shy of 1" long x 7/8" wide. Sterling was given a dark patina bath to show details.  Handmade with love by me in Oregon.
