"Guess & Guess Again" Organic Modern Cladonia Signet Ring in 18k Gold
* * SOLD * *
Playful and quirky, a vibrant, bi-color (violet and lavender) glass seal sits, nested, inside a thick-walled, organic bezel, which tapers seamlessly into the ring's integral shank. This unusual Victorian-era wax seal is carved with the words "guess & guess again"— that coy phrase would have struck the seal's owner pretty funny in the 1800s; taken out of context it is an absurd and challenging mantra, as if ones answer to any question will always be incorrect! This ring is modern and organic— its graceful shape is reminiscent of the beautiful pixie cup lichens (Cladonia asahinae). Metal is 18k yellow gold; it is delicately brushed. This ring has a significant presence on the hand.
This ring was entirely handcrafted in Portland, OR, by collaborating, independent craftspeople and designers.
