This ring is one of many in my A.S.Ornate ring collection.
A limited edition of one!
It is made from an antique silver spoon that has a slender thin stem with a simple decorative floral design at the terminal end. This is perfectly highlighted with an antique patina applied, but the ring is also available with a plain silver finish – I unfortunately don’t have any photograph to show this though.
The teaspoon was originally made in 1900 by a silversmith trading under the name of Arthur Priestly, based in Sheffield. Who knows what journeys it’s been on and the people it’s encountered, not to mention the amount of tea it has stirred or the gossip it’s heard in it’s lifetime before being discovered by me at the back of a cabinet in an antique shop.
The ring is available in UK ring sizes M to O
This ring, as with all my antique silverware rings, comes with a small provenance tag to identify the silversmith who originally made the spoon, the year it was made and the location of the assay office that hallmarked it.
Making jewellery from antique silverware is something I really enjoy. I love stripping away the years of tarnish and neglect and breathing new life into these forgotten things and making them into something precious that can be given as a gift or keepsake. Maybe the date is relevant to you or the detail in the design, but there’s always something special about an item with so much history – working with it as well as wearing the finished piece.
