This ring is one of many in my A.S.Brightcut ring collection. It is made from an antique silver spoon in the shape of a traditional celtic cross. Every part of the ring is intricatly engraved with beautiful patterns and designs. These are very well defined with the antique patina that has been applied.
Cheilteach, meaning Celtic Cross, is a fitting name for this ring.
The teaspoon was originally made in 1900 by a silversmith trading under the name of Robert Pringles & Sons who was based in Sheffield.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.
Only one of these rings exists and it’s only available with an antique patina applied.
Current size is ‘R’ but it could be enlarged a little to fit S or T.
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 This ring, as with all my antique silverware rings, comes with a small provenance tag to identify the silversmith who originally made the spoon, the year it was made and the location of the assay office that hallmarked it.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.
