    • Description

      The design on the viking dragon ring was originally carved by a viking into a stone on the Isle of Man in the 10th century.

      The vikings told tales of dragons who guarded ancient treasure. In their art they often used the symbol of the dragon as a guardian against danger. When I first saw this carving I wanted to recreate it as a ring, so now you can wear this ancient symbol wrapped around your finger.

      This ring has a smooth and solid form. I have also made it in openwork – see the openwork dragon ring.

      Size

      I have made this ring in three sizes. They are open at the back and are adjustable and you can bend them gently for a perfect fit.

      Which size is right for you? As a rough guide: on an average hand, the small ring will fit a female index finger or a male little finger. The large ring will fit an average male index finger.

      If you want to be more exact, please measure the circumference of your finger with a strip of paper, and compare your millimeter measurement with this table:

      Large ring  - This ring is 10mm wide.
      At its widest adjustment, this ring will fit 78mm circumference.

      At a regular adjustment, this ring will fit 67mm circumference.

      At its smallest adjustment, this ring will fit 60mm circumference.

      Medium ring - This ring is 8.5mm wide.
      At its widest adjustment, this ring will fit 67mm circumference.

      At a regular adjustment, this ring will fit 60mm circumference.

      At its smallest adjustment, this ring will fit 52mm circumference.

      Small ring - This ring is 6.5mm wide.
      At its widest adjustment, this ring will fit 60mm circumference.

      At a regular adjustment, this ring will fit 54mm circumference.

      At its smallest adjustment, this ring will fit 48mm circumference.

      You can adjust the ring easily yourself by using a piece of wood, or something similar, to prise the ring open, or to tap it to a smaller size. If you prefer, you can add a note to your order in the comments section and we will adjust the ring for you to a specific size.
