Head Above the Alpine Ring - Size 9
Looking back over life
Spent the most of it tongue tied
Pullin’ my belt tight
Just me and the stars tonight
Two fingers and a tight line
Keep my head above the alpine
Just wish I'd spent more time
Listenin’ to her speak her mind
These tiny landscape rings are my take on a classic - the mountain band ring. I've kept mine pared down + set the stones simply to let them steal the show. Each mountain silhouette features tiny alpine evergreens, to fill your ears with the memories of birdsong and your nose with the memories of sweet-strong balsam resin. For the full moon (or sun; choose your inspiration), I opted to splurge for solid 14 karat gold - more expensive than brass or gold fill; but I like the idea of it lasting forever, stubbornly resisting tarnish; stalwart like a mountain. This one features a vibrant, forest green Emerald Valley turquoise in a beautiful freeform triangular shape. The ring band measures approx 6.5 mm from top to bottom; a super comfortable width that fits more true to size than many wider band rings. Best fits a finger size 9. I am not able to offer resizing with this ring design. Oxidized satin finish for an old world feel.
All handcrafted using traditional silversmithing techniques, with my own two hands and a lot of heart and soul. Each North Star Silver order comes lovingly packaged and ready for gift-giving. I use GOTS-certified organic cotton jewelry bags and/or 100% post consumer recycled kraft jewelry boxes with natural cotton filling. All orders come with a jewelry care card.
