This mini-collection of rings was inspired by the mantra of compassion Om Mani Padme Hum. This ancient phrase of power is often translated to 'Behold! The Jewel in the Lotus'. I was always moved by the way the translation says nothing directly but so much indirectly. The imagery speaks to the heart.
This ring is composed of a beautiful face cast in sterling silver from my own sculpture, flanked by hand-fabricated leaves. Each piece in this mini-collection has its own unique leaves. The opening lotus, caught midway in its unfurling - was also hand cut from sheet silver and shaped. At its heart blinks the 'jewel' - in this case, in rainbow moonstone, flashing blue. The piece is mounted on a delicately-patterned floral ring band. The head, the lotus and the jewel combined, symbolise an elevation of consciousness and the quest for enlightenment.

All handmade jewelry is delicate - it must be worn with attnetion and kept away from water and chemicals. Snagging or dropping it could cause parts of it to break - it must be worn in a princely manner to ensure longevity.
* Ring sizing is by no means an exact science - Wide or double bands may feel tighter as they will be wrapping round an area of your finger higher up than where measurements are taken, which tends to be thicker. This ring marks 11 on the sizer (please see picture attached) but for the majority of people this ring will feel tighter than an 11.
These pieces are precious, and getting them safely to you is my concern, priority and responsibility. I take this seriously and have had an impeccable track record of delivery and resolution throughout the years (knock that wood, bby)
All pieces ship trackably, insured as standard shipping offered, with opportunity to upgrade to courier. They ship from Malta in the EU to wherever you live in the world. Living and working on an island, shipping overseas and particularly, to the USA is all I do day-in , day out. It's safe, reliable, and sometimes amazingly quick.
I put a lot of care into my packing and each will be ready-to-gift.
