Cuar is one of many rings in my A.S.Classic ring collection and new to my shop today. Made from an antique silver spoon, Cuar has beautiful curved edges with a thick ridge accentuated by an antique patina.
The teaspoon was originally made in 1932 by a silversmith trading under the name of William Hair Haseler who was based in Birmingham.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.
Currently sized as a UK ‘X’ this ring could go down to a ‘U’
A limited edition of 1
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 This ring, as with all my antique silverware rings, comes with a small provenance tag to identify the silversmith who originally made the spoon, the year it was made and the location of the assay office that hallmarked it.
I’ve only photographed this ring with an antique patina applied, but you can choose to buy this with a plain silver finish, but I personally think it looks better with a patina.
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.
