This salvaged antique sterling silver teaspoon has been re-imagined and transformed into a wearable heirloom – something with a new purpose, beauty and charm. Now it's a beautiful ring named LÚDRACH.
The original teaspoon from which this ring is made was hallmarked in 1946, making this piece over 70 years old! It was assayed Sheffield by Cooper Brothers & Sons.
Each of Evie’s spoon rings is given a unique name of Celtic or Gaelic origin that relates to the designs on the teaspoon stems. Lúdrach translates as Hinge as the design at the terminal end of the spoon stem is reminiscent of a hinge or join.
An antique patina has been applied to the silver which turns the whole ring black. The ring is then polished and the raised surfaces of the design are revealed leaving the recesses black making the designs stand out.
At the widest point these are 1cm across and taper to 3mm at the narrowest point. They have a linear and geometric design to them and feel smooth and comfortable to wear.
A solid silver vintage teaspoon, hallmark dated 1946.
The rings are not closed and so can be adjusted slightly.
Each ring retains the original hallmark and comes with a provenance card that outlines the original maker as well as the city and year the teaspoon was assayed – all packaged in a beautifully simple, stylish glassine envelope. All environmentally friendly, recyclable and plastic free from production to presentation.
Available in UK sizes O to S only
The rings are not soldered closed and so can be adjusted slightly. This makes it particularly easy to give as a gift!
