A truly unique ring design that you won't see anywhere else! An intricate design of a honey bee on the comb circles the entire band. The Celtic bee was designed by the remarkable and talented Pat Fish (http://www.luckyfish.com/) who's intricate and unique designs and tattoos are fantastic in their own right (this design is kindly used with her permission). In the kingdom of spirit animals, the bee is emblematic of hard work and community building, a perfect symbol of strength for your marriage or partnership. Perfect for the lover of symbolic mysticism entwined with graceful beauty!
The bee was used as a symbol of government by Emperor Napoleon I of France. Both the Hindu Atharva Veda and the ancient Greeks associated lips anointed with honey with the gift of eloquence and even of prescience. The priestess at Delphi was the "Delphic Bee". The Quran has a chapter titled "The Bee". In ancient Egyptian mythology, honeybees were believed to be born from the tears of the Sun God, Ra. A community of honey bees has often been employed by political theorists as a model of human society, from Aristotle and Plato to Virgil. Honey bees, signifying immortality and resurrection, were royal emblems of the Merovingians. The state of Utah is called the "Beehive State", the state emblem is the beehive, the state insect is the honey bee, and a beehive and the word "industry" appear on both the state flag and seal.
Cast in solid sterling silver, these rings are made of 100% recycled metal. The finish in the photos uses Patina to make the design stand out. For a brighter look, select polish. For a more muted look, brushed. Please choose from the drop down.
Every ring is made to order and in YOUR CUSTOM size. Please buy our refundable ring sizer (BEFORE ORDERING) as most rings cannot be resized because of the continuous knotwork: www.etsy.com/listing/937178260
This Animal Totem ring design differs from most patterned rings in that the design goes all the way around the ring in an unbroken pattern, symbolizing the continuous nature of true love. Each one is individually made in your size so the width of the ring varies depending on how wide your finger is, so all rings match proportionally (see the chart below to see how big the ring is in your size). We can vary the width, please message us if you'd like a custom width.
We do offer payment plans available for our more expensive ($400 and over) pieces. We can make these in different metals (sterling silver, 10K, 14K and 18K golds, platinum ) please request if you'd like to order this or any of our pieces in a different metal. All of our pieces can be customized, if you'd like to add a stone, choose a different stone than the one listed, change stone shape or stone size, please message us so we can create a lovely custom piece for you!

If it's not based on one of our existing designs, you will NEED to send us a sketch of what you are looking for.
We will give you a quote and if you agree, begin working on your custom design. This can take 4-12 weeks. Once you approve the design, we will create a custom listing for purchase. Upon full payment, your ring will enter production which takes 4-6 weeks.
Our rings are made with lab-grown stones. These are REAL STONES (not fake cubic zirconia) and they are chemically identical to naturally occurring ones, but they are better for the earth because we can find them in a lab versus having to dig randomly in the soil.
Upon request, we can make rings with natural stones such as Diamonds, Topaz, Ruby etc Please contact us for a quote as this will dramatically increase the price since these stones are mined at premium costs.
We can make any ring in sterling silver, gold (10K, 14K, 18K, yellow, white, or rose) or platinum.
We do not offer tungsten, steel, or titanium.
All our rings are made custom to your exact ordered size (we highly, highly suggest you purchase our refundable ring sizer). https://www.etsy.com/listing/93717826
For rings with stones or continuous knotwork (80% of our designs), we cannot resize the ring and you will need to purchase a brand new ring at 35% of the original cost to cover the labor required to make a new ring. Creating a new ring takes our standard 4-6 weeks. We only offer this discounted remake service once; if you order the incorrect size again, you will have to purchase the ring at full value. We know this is frustrating but we are a small business.
You must contact us within 3 days of receiving your ring to tell us if you need a resize. Original ring must be returned.
For purchases over $400, we offer 2 or 4 monthly payment options.
For purchases over $1500 contact us for a 6 payment plan.
We are flexible on finish dates, but we require rings to be paid in full before we begin working on them (rings take 4-6 weeks to create). Please keep this in mind if you need your rings for a specific date.
We suggest polished + patina for most rings.
Patina is a method of darkening metal through oxidation. This allows small details to stand out and gives the ring a beautiful contrast. Almost all our photos use patina.
Polish is the standard finish you see in high end jewelry - bright, shiny and very reflective.
Brushed is a matte finish recommended for those who are hard on their hands or do rough work. The surface will not be shiny so it hides any scuffs that might occur during wear. Be warned, this will look much duller than our polished finish.
Please see last image in listings for examples of the different finish styles.
Our rings are handmade and take 4-6 weeks to create from the time an order is placed, plus 3-10 days for USA shipping.
Please contact us BEFORE purchasing to see if the design you are interested in can be engraved. Rings with stones or cut-throughs cannot be engraved.
We are sorry, but we cannot tell you what the cost of import or custom fees will be. This is specific to your country and region. Please contact your local post office or government.
