Sterling silver badger head ring with dark blue sapphire eyes. Would suit UK finger size 'M' or US finger size 6.

Found in its different guises across Europe, Asia and North America the badger is a much loved animal with strength and courage that are celebrated in countless folktales and children’s stories.
This piece depicts a European Badger (Meles meles), the nocturnal, burrowing creature featured in Kenneth Graham's classic ‘The Wind in the Willows’, as Tommy Brock in Beatrix Potter's children’s books and as the house symbol for Hufflepuff in the ‘Harry Potter’ series.

The European badger is a powerfully built black, white, and grey animal with a small head, a stocky body, little black eyes and short tail. The European badger is generally a social, peaceful animal, having been known to share its burrow with other species such as rabbits, red foxes and raccoon dogs.

The sterling silver badger ring would suit someone with a finger sized UK 'M', which is US size 6. It measures a little under 4cm or one and a half inches long. It weighs approximately 31.5g (which is a bit over an ounce), and has beady eyes made from dark blue cabochon sapphires. It was hand carved from wax which had a mould taken from it. It was then cast in sterling silver and given a hallmark to prove it is made from solid silver.
The badger’s black and white stripes were created by oxidising the silver to make the black stripes, then cutting through the oxidisation to expose the silver beneath and create the white stripes. The whole badger was then coated with a layer of clear lacquer to help preserve the colouration. This ring is supplied in its own gift box.
