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. We offer different Finishing options. The finish used in the photos is the Brush finish with Patina added in the crevices to make the design stand out! We do offer a polished finish as well with or without patina. Please choose from the drop down.
All our Celtic rings are made to order, and made in your size, WE --NEED-- YOUR SIZE BEFORE WE CAN MAKE YOUR RING. Our rings are available in 1/4 sizes from size 4 to 13, any other sizes are by special request only, please contact us if you need a size outside this range.
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 discounts for multiple purchases, and have 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 or palladium) 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!

We love getting custom orders! For full custom items, the price is on a per item basis so contact with your idea for a quote. We can create rings from rough sketches or inspired by other designs.
We can also personalize any of the rings in our store by changing the width, the type of stones, the type of metal, the way the knots weave or any number of other customizations, the majority of which there is no extra charge for. For most of our rings that are solid backed we offer engraving, please message us if you'd like to have your ring engraved.
Yes! All of our listings that show 2 rings is for a set. For some reason, Etsy won't let me put in a second ring size option, so I just tell people to select the size of the first ring and put the size for the second in the notes.
Yes! All of our rings can be made with any different stone you'd like, we have a wide selection of stones at our disposal and would be happy to create a ring with the stone you want. Pricing may vary so please ask for a quote before ordering.
Yes and yes! We make all of the rings you see in our selection in sterling silver, gold, palladium or platinum. If you do not see the ring you want in the metal you are looking for let us know and we'll happily put up a listing for you.
Sadly no. We do not have the equipment to cast in any of these metals, and finishing them can be quite challenging because we don't have tools that are designed to work with metals this hard.
Patina is the dark oxidation that appears in the crevices of any metal that oxidizes. We most often patina sterling silver rings, but can also patina gold rings upon request. While we can't patina palladium or platinum (these metals don't react with oxygen easily), we can add antiquing that has a similar effect.
Generally we will either size the ring to the correct size at no charge, or exchange the ring for a ring of the correct size, also at no charge. We know that it can be difficult to get the order entirely correct when ordering on-line, so we provide this extra flexibility to our customers. If you need your ring re-sized more than 3 months after purchase we may charge a re-sizing or re-making fee, depending on our design. Some of our designs (particularly the rings with continuous knotwork around the entire ring) cannot easily be resized and may need to be re-made to the correct size.
Yes! For payments, we can break it up however you'd like, all we ask is that we know the finish date and that the rings are paid off before shipping, other than that we're quite flexible. Often we've done 4 payments at monthly increments, but whatever you're comfortable with is fine.
