Hand Carved Bamboo Stacking Rings Set in Sterling Silver
These hand-carved, sterling silver rings started as replicas of my great grandmother's gold bamboo wedding set, which has long since been lost. In many cultures, bamboo has been a symbol of strength, flexibility, and humility for many centuries. Others have remarked the rings also resemble bone.
Each of these rings is hand carved (not cast from a mold) and is therefore completely unique. After shaping, texturing, and polishing, the ring is antiqued and polished again to highlight detail. The pictured ring measures 2-3mm (~.1 inch) wide and has a total weight of 2.5 grams in a size 5.5 (weight increases with ring size).
