One of the coolest things about custom jewelry is that it can be incredibly personalized. Everything from design details, metal and stone choice can all carry individual meaning. And this is absolutely the case with a custom ring I recently completed.
I lovingly call it the Arrow Ring, but it’s so much more than that for my client. For someone who loves archery, the cool blue color of water and the energy of natural stones, this ring captures it all.
Arrows are everywhere recently, but this design was not following current trends. As someone who practices archery, the arrow symbolizes something personal to my client. By designing a heavyweight oxidized silver band to be worn on her index finger, I was able to create a large arrow cutout that wraps around the entire band. The shape is inspired by a quintessential arrow from tip to “feathers.”
But the most special part of this ring is the custom cut aqua blue chalcedony. The edges of the chunky facets perfectly complement the angles of the graphic arrow. Not only is the blue color of this stone a favorite of my client, but the meaning and energy of the Chalcedony itself is something very important to her. Combining all of these unique details created a one-of-a-kind ring that wraps her finger in both personal meaning and natural energy.
