Some considerations when measuring ring sizes:

Since the wider a ring is, the tighter it will fit, please note that your sizes must be measured with a ring sizer (a jeweler's wedding band gauge) of the same width as the rings of your choice.

The best size is usually the ring that fits snugly and gives a little resistance when you take it off. If you have additional questions, please do not hesitate to ask.

A metaphor of life itself


These overlay wedding bands are constructed of 14K palladium white gold and 14K red gold (left) and 14K palladium yellow gold and 14K red gold (right). The texture of the ring surfaces is almost fluid, of various ranges from rough all the way to  smooth and everything in between. This 'organic', or 'sculptural' effect, created with the aid of a blow torch, files, and the hammer blow technique, reflects the capricious nature and the paradoxes of our earthly existence.

The ring set contains a metaphor of peaks and valleys, the obstacles  and possibilities that two lovers encounter as they walk the matrimonial road and must overcome together. Zhaawano designed these rings in the spirit of his Anishinaabe ancestors, whose teachings have always been parabolic and aimed at gaining wisdom by experience and reflection.
