With Independance Day the 4th of July 2010, comes the debut of the beginning of my 8th collection of men's rings inspired by the 1940's and 1950's. Alot of these rings include themes from WWII, signet rings, pinky rings, intaglios, cameos, intials, and even popular sports of the time like bowling. All of which I have antiqued and prefered them to look worn to death, simply because men used to own so few pieces and the jewelry that they did have had so much value that they would never take it off.
When I think back on these times that shaped our great nation and when I wear one of these rings, it's like I'm honoring everything America stands for and the all the people that fought to give us our freedom.
Ring ten of this collection:
This sterling silver World War II United Nations Ring was cast out of an old setting that was bought from a guy that I know who uses his metal detector to find lost items at the beach, outdoors, and in the sewer.
Not to worry, this one is brand new and hand cast, then finished with an antique polish to give it that old worn to death look, that I love!
The face measures 17mm by 10mm, it features the high rise known as the 'Secretariat Building' and the long profile of the 'Dag Hammarskjold Library'....
Since the United Nations was officially formed on October 24th, 1945, in response to WWII, I feel it's so appropriate to have this as a reminder of their role then and ever presently today....
Upon ordering please let me know of your size, and if you'd like antique, satin, or polished finsih.
