Blood Milk did it aigain with another stunning piece.
Belonging to the darkness. Rose gold vermeil & black flush CZ
This ring is a play on both the Persephone ring and the Lydia ring, converging dark romance with perfect casts of sparrow claws. Here, this ring represents a kind of “engagement” ring and I was certainly thinking of Lady Persephone of myth, belonging to Hades, lord of the Underworld / afterlife. For me personally, it represents a way of showing a commitment, a belonging to something or someone, yourself, an idea or a time or even an emotion, perhaps even if these are things that we are looking to let go of but still want represented somehow in our lives.
This ring is comprised of an antique setting manipulated with my beloved sparrow claws grasping each side. A beautiful black faceted CZ has been set in the ring. this ring reads a little smaller on the hand than many of my other designs, making it suitable for everyday wear while still making a statement.
This version is cast in sterling silver, given a luminous high polish and then plated in lovely rose gold for an elegant and outstanding vision. The black CZ reflects the light and is faceted, adding another textural element to the ring, modern lines against the high detail of the setting and sparrow claws.
This ring is an eyelash over an inch wide and an inch tall, standing half an inch off the finger.
