This ring is one of many in my A.S.Ornate ring collection. It is made from an antique silver spoon and I’ve given it the name Coroin because of the design at the tip of the stem which, to me, is reminiscent of a crown. It just seems rather regal, with a crown at the tip and a long ridge that runs down the stem.
The teaspoon was originally made in 1946 by a silversmith trading under the name of Lawson Ltd who was based in Birmingham. 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 5
This design is available in sizes J to R – the rings are not closed so can be adjusted.
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 This ring, as with all my antique silverware rings, comes with a small provenance tag to identify the silversmith who originally made the spoon, the year it was made and the location of the assay office that hallmarked it.
Available in a plain silver finish or with an antique patina applied and I personally can’t say which I prefer, I love it with either finish.
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.
