Wear a piece of history today with this beautiful and unique handcrafted sterling silver spoon ring.
Réalta translates as star and the design on this spoon stem was created using a type of decorative engraving called ‘bright-cut’ - a technique that involved making a series of short cuts into the metal surface that caused the raised exposed surface to reflect the light and give an impression of brightness. This design seems to depicts a bright shooting star.
This ring was originally a teaspoon made in 1824 by George Bindoff in London. It is in a limited edition set of 6 rings and we only have two of this design left in stock.
This salvaged antique sterling silver teaspoon has been re-imagined and transformed into a wearable heirloom – something with a new purpose, beauty and charm. 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.
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.
Each ring 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 P to T only
The rings are not soldered closed and so can be adjusted slightly. This makes it particularly easy to give as a gift!
