Cleite is one of many rings in my A.S.Classic ring collection. A beautifully delicate ring made from an antique silver teaspoon with a tapering stem accented by a feather like grooved pattern running around the edges.
The teaspoon was originally made in 1908by a silversmith trading under the name of Joseph Rodgers & Sons, who was based in Sheffield.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.
Available in large UK sizes L to T
Limited edition of 3
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This ring, as with all my antique silverware rings, comes with a small provenance tag to identify the silversmith who originally made the spoon, the year it was made and the location of the assay office that hallmarked it.
This simple feathered edge design is beautifully accentuated by an antique patina, but the ring is equally enthralling in a plain silver finish. This ring has been photographed with an antique patina applied, however you can choose to have this ring in plain silver – simply specify which finish you would prefer before placing the ring into your shopping basket.
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.
