This ring is one of many in my A.S.Classic ring collection.
Simplicity in design is often a wonderful thing. This ring has no embelishments at all but a single smooth ridge that runs down the centre of the entire stem. It’s a delicate ring made from an antique silver teaspoon with a very slim stem.
The teaspoon was originally made in 1927 by a silversmiths trading under the name of Cooper Brothers & Sons, who were based in Sheffield.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.
This design is available in sizes L to O – the rings are not closed so can be adjusted.
Limited edition of 6
Available in a plain silver finish only.
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 This ring, as with all my antique silverware rings, comes with a small provenance tag to identify the silversmith who originally made the spoon, the year it was made and the location of the assay office that hallmarked it.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.
