Blaithin, meaning tiny flower, is a perfect name for this ring. It is a beautifully engraved ring with a tiny flower design emerging underneath radiant rays and a floral canopy. A sturdy solid ring, available in medium to large sizes, would also work well as a thumb ring.
The teaspoon was originally made in 1900 by the silversmiths trading under the name of James Wakely & Frank Clarke Wheeler who were based in London. 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.
A limited edition of 2, this design is available in sizes O to V – the rings are not closed so can be adjusted.
A sturdy solid ring, available in medium to large sizes, Blaithin is a new design recently introduced to my online shop. If you are interested in this design and thinking of purchasing an Blaithin ring, be aware that only 2 exist.
Although in my opinion the ring looks best with an antique patina applied as this brings out the detail in the engraved design, the ring is also available in a plain silver finish.
The original hallmark and makers mark have been left intact and are clearly visible on the inside of the ring. This ring, as with all my antique silverware rings, comes with a small provenance tag to identify the silversmith who originally made the spoon, the year it was made and the location of the assay office that hallmarked it.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.
