Undertow Ring

Regular price $329

Description

Wide ring with fluid, polished surface and rippling texture inspired by the sometimes gentle, sometimes turbulent movement of sea water.

Artist's Notes: The creation of the Undertow Ring became a leading force in the development of this body of work. It was crafted in response to the very first piece of jewellery I ever made in sterling silver. A heavy, wonky ring band informed only by the naiveté of my hands without a formal design concept or desired outcome, the ring became a talisman that heralded a new chapter in my life.

I had worn that ring every day for almost six years, and it always received attention by strangers - but it was poorly crafted by a novice maker and I felt ashamed of it even though I had a fiercely sentimental attachment to it.

At the start of the development of this new body of work I felt an urgency to revisit it - exploring what made the form so compelling to others; what meaning I imbued into the piece that made it so intimate to me - and ultimately, to create a new version of it that would celebrate a history and a future of my own making.

It is a delight and a privilege to be able to share it with you.

This ring is hand-crafted to order. Allow approximately 2 weeks for production.

Ring Size Guide

The ALICIA HANNAH NAOMI atelier is based in Australia and uses the Australian/UK (wheatsheaf alphabetic) sizing system measured from the centre-back of the band. Please use the following chart as a guide to convert your international size to the nearest UK size.
 
You are strongly encouraged to check your ring size carefully before placing your order.Ring sizing is not an exact science. Tools and techniques used to read and take sizes can vary from jeweller to jeweller, but being sized professionally by an experienced assistant at a reputable jewellery store is always the most accurate way to determine your ring size. Using string or paper to work out your circumference size is often unreliable.
 
Make sure to factor in which hand you want to wear the ring on, and the temperature the day you are fitted as this can affect your size. Check that space between the base of the finger and the knuckle is wide enough to accommodate how tall the ring measures. Personal comfort is also a factor, but ideally, a ring should need a hard wiggle to get over the knuckle - too easy and you may risk it falling off, too much resistance and you may not get it back over the knuckle again.
 
The heavier and wider a ring is, the larger the size you will typically need to wear. You may need to add one or two full UK sizes to your usual ring size when choosing a heavy and wide ring. An experienced jewellery store assistant should be able to advise you whilst you are being measured.
 
If you require a ring size smaller or larger than that available, we offer a custom sizing service for a nominal fee. Please contact us to discuss your sizing needs.
