This unusual handmade sterling silver signet ring is a tribute to the mythic white whale, Moby Dick. "Methinks that what they call my shadow here on earth is my true substance. Methinks that in looking at things spiritual, we are too much like oysters observing the sun through the water, and thinking that thick water the thinnest of air." --Herman Melville, from Moby Dick

This ring has the heirloom quality of an antique treasure--as if it could have been worn on the hand of Ishmael himself. I meticulously carved the tiny sperm whale in wax and cast it in sterling silver using the ancient lost-wax casting method, preserving the detail of the full-sized creature in this miniature scale. A signet ring (which I carved by hand) showcases the whale within a delicate frame of silver. The substantial band is comfortable to wear and has a satisfying weight to it.

I've given the piece an heirloom look by applying a rich patina and very slightly distressing the band. This ring looks great on the hand of a man or a woman.

I can make this ring in just about any size--please let me know your size in the "Notes to Seller" when you check out. Because your ring will be custom made in your size, please allow up to three weeks for the completion of your ring. If you need it faster, let me know and we'll figure it out!

Your ring will arrive attractively packaged. If you'll be giving it as a gift and you'd like me to include a hand-written note for the recipient, just let me know what you'd like it to say in the "Notes to Seller" when you check out.
