Hand Carved Bamboo Stacking Ring in Sterling Silver
This hand-carved, sterling silver ring started as a replica of my great grandmother's gold bamboo wedding band, 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 ring also resembles a ring of 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 2-2.5mm (~.1 inch) wide and has a total weight of 2.5 grams in a size 5.5 (weight increases with ring size).
