Here is a ring for anyone who loves tales of Elves and fantasy.
It would make a beautiful timeless wedding ring. Relic ring inscribed in Feanorian characters, the text is a fragment from an old Elven song. A very romantic tale of love and staying together till death do us part. The ring is said to have been made in the last haven west of the sea.
This ring is inspired by epic fantasy and tales of high Elves and their magic. It is a 5 mm wide band - rustic, hand forged and oxidized to emphasise the runic calligraphy. Whatever the letters say they are beautiful in their swirly feminine style. The ring is imprinted with Elven runes and subtly adorned with a round rune plaque to finish the design. Polished to a high shine.
The silver is actually purer than sterling - a percentage known as Britannia silver. It is 96% silver vs. sterling's 92.5% It is recycled silver - extracted from photographic films and liquids, so this is a truly ethical choice.
Made to order in all ring sizes. If you don't know your US or UK size, just measure the inner diameter of a ring you already have and let me know (in the note to seller). Or buy a ring sizer here in the shop.
* Britannia silver / sterling silver
* About 5 mm wide
* 1 mm thick
*** A bit more about the Tengwar text ***
I have chosen a segment from the song:
"And in the glade a light was seen Of stars in shadow shimmering. ... And light of stars was in her hair, And in her raiment glimmering."
This I have translated as phonetic English (not Quenya) and made into a texture plate to impress the silver with. Each ring gets a section of one of the lines. How much depends on the size of the ring and which line I choose that day. I love the poetry of it and the idea was that the ring grabs the spirit of the song. While I like that the text has significance and gives a nod to an old favourite story of mine, the rings aren't meant to be 'read' as such - I just love the look of the old script.
This ring can be personalised with a message inside. Just be aware that it can't be returned if you choose an inscription.
