Embrace your creative side, love the planet we live on and show your soul that you are listening.  This piece is for the poets, the dreamers and the hard core skulls and roses fan.  Our Band of Roses eternity ring is simple in styling and beautiful in design, it carries an understated elegance that transfers from casual to dressy and is a piece that you will wear for years to come.


Meaning: The Roma people have always lived just outside ‘normal’ society and learned to live with and from nature. This belief of taking just what they needed from the wild to survive ran through nearly all that they did. It was the same with their traditional crafts whether peg making or weaving baskets, they took from the hedgerows the Hazel and Willow freely provided. This was working with nature, and the more the Hazel and Willow were cut the more it would grow, it was using a renewable resource. Another of the Romany crafts was making artificial flowers. Various materials were used, pink and red roses were expertly molded by hand from candle wax and fixed to twigs. Colored crepe paper was cut with scissors, deftly folded, tweaked and wired onto a single twig stem. The Rose is a symbol of creativity, love of nature, of life and of others. Give of yourself, share your creativity with the world, respect the resources we have and act in a way that not only takes but gives back.
