      The Edge ring. A modern ring with viking origins.

      Hard-edged, angular rings are known from original Viking Age finds; this is my version of this ancient form. I have complimented the smooth surface with a simple sharp ribbon ornament, originally used by the Vikings for the decoration of cloak pins. I have also carefully shaped the ring so that it is comfortable to wear and has a low, rounded profile between the fingers, whilst still keeping that uncompromising, blade-like line on top of the hand.

      A hard mirror-finish completes the striking minimalism of this ring, an ancient design with a modern edge.  These rings are in hallmarked Sterling Silver.

      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 millimetre measurement with this table:

      Large ring  - This ring is 8mm wide.
      At its widest adjustment, this ring will fit 76mm circumference.

      At a regular adjustment, this ring will fit 64mm circumference.

      At its smallest adjustment, this ring will fit 57mm circumference.

      Medium ring - This ring is 7mm wide.
      At its widest adjustment, this ring will fit 68mm circumference.

      At a regular adjustment, this ring will fit 58mm circumference.

      At its smallest adjustment, this ring will fit 54mm circumference.

      Small ring - This ring is 6mm wide.
      At its widest adjustment, this ring will fit 60mm circumference.

      At a regular adjustment, this ring will fit 50mm circumference.

      At its smallest adjustment, this ring will fit 44mm 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.
