Silver Viking Openwork Dragon Ring
Sterling Silver 925
This striking dragon design on the openwork 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.
For this ring I have cut the pattern through, in sterling silver openwork.
Size and Weight
I have made the ring in two sizes. They are open at the back so both are adjustable and you can bend them gently for a perfect fit.
Which size is right for you?
As a rough guide, a large ring will fit a medium to large male finger. A small ring will fit a medium to large female 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:
At its widest adjustment, this ring will fit 74mm circumference.
At a regular adjustment, this ring will fit 64mm circumference.
At its smallest adjustment, this ring will fit 58mm circumference.
Weight Sterling Silver 9.5g (Weights may vary from piece to piece)

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. There is a film about how to do this on our YouTube Channel. You can copy this link into your browser https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GSHPWaQP_8A&t=32s
If you prefer, you can add a note to your order and we will adjust the ring for you to a specific size.
